Abstract

Diving-related ‘immersion’ pulmonary oedema is very
uncommon and probably underreported.1,2 Immersion
in thermoneutral water augments cardiac preload and
increases pulmonary arterial pressure as blood is redistributed
from the periphery to the thoracic cavity. Intrathoracic
blood volume may increase by half a litre,
resulting in a 30% rise in cardiac output and increases
in right atrial pressures of up to 16 mmHg.
