There is obvious massive organ damage and the blood vessels of the eye have burst, creating an unnerving red gaze.

The High Pressure affliction can only be seen when examining characters who have died from it, but living characters will be shown the affliction's icon when they are in a high pressure area (most notably, Europa's ocean), death by High Pressure is not instant, and its effects are signaled by screen shaking and Bleeding.

Wearing a Diving suit protects the wearer from the effects of High Pressure, and leaving a high pressure area removes High Pressure. There are no treatments for High Pressure injuries, they are instantly lethal.
