... physiology Gas exchange Imagine it is a warm summer day and you are getting ready to dive down to the bottom of a deep pool. You prepare mentally, take a deep breath and kick off from the surface. For a human, with limited breath-hold capacity, it may seem obvious that you would dive with your lungs...

Functional, behavioral and morphological evidence suggests that double bubble-sucking increases the efficiency of pulmonary gas exchange by separating expired, deoxygenated air from freshly inspired air to prevent mixing.

Gas exchange transients were evaluated in reference to predictions from a two-compartment model of CO 2 exchange to quantify the effects of the levels of hypoxia and hypercapnia, duration of hypercapnia (30–300 min) and body temperature (23 versus 33°C). For hypercapnia...

This study combines measurements of dive characteristics under different exotic gases (N 2 , He, SF 6 , CO) with mathematical modelling, to show that the air store of the backswimmer...

We hypothesized that total evaporative water loss would be greater when passive gas exchange was inhibited. We found...
