Abstract

To investigate the possibility of lung injury after long-term saturation dives where oxygen partial pressure was kept between 42 and 50 kPa, we measured lung volumes, diffusing capacity (DLCO/VA), and ethane production in the alveolar expirate on six divers who participated in a 1.1-MPa saturation dive (9 days of total dive time) and on another six divers… (More)
