Competitive underwater hockey play demands frequent and prolonged breath-hold dives. To see whether participants were physiologically adapted to breath-hold diving we studied the ventilatory response to carbon dioxide (CO2) and the breath-hold times of 34 male, underwater hockey players (divers) and compared them to 28 male, dry-land sportsmen (athletes). The divers showed an increased tolerance to CO2, the mean (+/- SD) slope of the CO2 response curve being 1.08 (+/- 0.55) liter.min-1.mmHg CO2… CONTINUE READING
