Water Immersion & Gas Pressure
Submersion in water exposes the human body to ahyperbaric condition
external pressure is greater thansea level
Because volume decreases as pressure increases, airthat is in the body before it goes underwater iscompressed when the body is submerged
Conversely, air taken in depth expands during ascent

CV Response to Water Immersion
Water reduces the stress on CV
When body submerged:
Plasma volume increased
RHR drops
Effect is enhance by cold water
Hyperventilation is often practiced before breath-holddiving to increase underwater stay
can lead to loseconsciousness
During breath hold diving, the gases in the body canbecome pressurized (even 1 or 2 meter deep)
