Respiratory heat transfer in cold water and during rewarming.

Abstract

Respiratory heat loss was measured during cold water (5-6 degrees C) excursions to depths of 300 m. Losses were computed with and without respiratory gas heating when wearing a diving helmet in current commercial and Service use. A magnitude of heat loss, sufficient to cause undue stress to the respiratory tract, was observed even with gas heating provided… (More)
