Dynamic lung volumes and flows, slope of phase III of the single breath oxygen test (delta-N2), closing volume (CV), and transfer factor for carbon monoxide (TICO) were measured before and 1 h after an air dive in a hyperbaric chamber to a pressure of 0.49 MPa for 40 min. Six divers had a bottom time of 20 min and a rate of decompression of 50 kPa x min-1, and six divers had a bottom time of 24 min and a rate of decompression of 100 kPa x min-1. Decompression stops were 5 min at 0.16 MPa and 10… CONTINUE READING
