Under certain circumstances, Navy divers breathe 100% O2 when working underwater. Serious symptoms of central nervous system (CNS) O2 toxicity can develop from hyperbaric O2 exposure; immersion and exercise are also known to exacerbate toxicity. We developed risk models for quantitative prediction of the probability of developing symptoms using a large set of human data in which occupational exposure conditions were simulated. Exposures were 5 to 265 min at PO2 levels from 20 to 50 feet of sea… CONTINUE READING
