Upon apnoeic face immersion, humans develop a diving response resembling that found in diving mammals. There have been contradictory reports regarding the influence of water temperature on the magnitude of the resulting bradycardia. This study examined the influence of both water and ambient air temperatures on human diving bradycardia. A group of 23 volunteers performed three series of apnoeic episodes after 60-min exposure to air at temperatures of 10, 20 or 30°C. Oral and skin temperatures… CONTINUE READING
