Extrathoracic airways obstruction and scuba diving may induce pulmonary edema, probably because of increased hydrostatic transmural capillary pressure in the lung. This study was designed to examine the subacute pulmonary effects of the combined exposure to inspiratory resistive loading and immersion, as in scuba diving. Two groups each of eight healthy men were exposed to head-out water immersion in thermoneutral water for 40 min with or without an added inspiratory resistive load. At flows of… CONTINUE READING
