During diving the respiratory tract is exposed to occupational hazards (increased oxygen partial pressure, pulmonary vessel engorgement during submersion, inert gas micro embolism during decompression). Leukotriene-B4 [LTB4] concentrations in the exhaled breath mirrors the inflammatory activity of the airways if the respiratory tract has been exposed to… CONTINUE READING
