The cardiovascular adjustments to face immersion and apnea (FIA) in human beings during steady-state muscle exercise (163 and 98 watt) have been investigated. Using a triple lumen flow directed catheter inserted into the pulmonary artery we were able to measure cardiac output (CO) by thermodilution technique, pulmonary arterial pressure (PPA) right atrial pressure (PRA) and left ventricular filling pressure (PAD). Phasic arterial blood pressure (BP) was measured via a cannula in the radial… CONTINUE READING
