Relative bradycardias have been reported to occur in humans both at rest and during exercise under a variety of hyperbaric conditions. Review of existing data reveals that there are two major mechanisms operating: one depends on hyperoxia and the other does not. While it is clear that hyperoxia produces bradycardia by a variety of well understood mechanisms, the non-oxygen-dependent causes of hyperbaric bradycardia have not been defined. Experimental results from animals studies have eliminated… CONTINUE READING
