Pulmonary function was measured before and after a 28-day saturation dive to a pressure of 0.25 MPa in eight subjects. PO2 was 40 kPa, with periods of 75 kPa for 2 h every 2nd day during the first 14 days, 50 kPa for the next 12 days, and a gradual fall to 21 kPa over the last 2 days in decompression. A 28-day saturation dive with six subjects to a pressure of 0.15 MPa and a PO2 of 21 kPa was used as control. The measurements included static and dynamic lung volumes and flows, transfer factor… CONTINUE READING
