Hyperoxia reduces the ventilatory response to hypercapnia by suppressing carotid body (CB) activation. This effect may contribute to CO2 retention during underwater diving due to the high arterial O2 content associated with hyperbaria. We tested the hypothesis that CB chemosensitivity to hypercapnia and hypoxia is attenuated during hyperbaria. Ten subjects completed two, 4-h dry dives at 1.6 atmosphere absolute (ATA) breathing either 21% O2 (Air) or 100% O2 (100% O2). CB chemosensitivity was assessed using brief hypercapnic ventilatory response ([Formula: see text]) and hypoxic ventilatory response ([Formula: see text]) tests predive, 75 and 155 min into the dives, and 15 and 55 min postdive. End-tidal CO2 pressure increased during the dive at 75 and 155 min [Air: +9 (SD 4) mmHg and +8 (SD 4) mmHg versus 100% O2: +6 (SD 4) mmHg and +5 (SD 3) mmHg; all P < 0.01] and was higher while breathing Air (P < 0.01). [Formula: see text] was unchanged during the dive (P = 0.73) and was not different between conditions (P = 0.47). However, [Formula: see text] was attenuated from predive during the dive at 155 min breathing Air [-0.035 (SD 0.037) L·min·mmHg-1; P = 0.02] and at both time points while breathing 100% O2 [-0.035 (SD 0.052) L·mi...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
