hypobaric

 [hi″po-bār´ik]
characterized by less than normal pressure or weight; applied to gases under less than atmospheric pressure, or to solutions of lower specific gravity than another taken as a standard of reference.

hy·po·bar·ic

(hī'pō-bar'ik),
1. Pertaining to pressure of ambient gases below one atmosphere.
2. With respect to solutions, less dense than the diluent or medium; for example, in spinal anesthesia, a hypobaric solution has a density lower than that of spinal fluid.
[hypo- + G. baros, weight]
