The effects of static lung loading in the range +20 cmH2O to -20 cmH2O was investigated in 3 male subjects breathing air during submerged exercise in the prone position at pressures ranging from 1.45 ATA to 6.76 ATA. Both maximal and submaximal exercise was performed and dry controls were done at 1.45 ATA. A low-resistance bag-in-a-box breathing apparatus (less than 1.25 cmH2O/liter/s at 8 g/liter density) was used. Static lung loading had little effect on maximal or submaximal VO2, VCO2, VE… CONTINUE READING
