Because these two fuels are not oxygen-using (aerobic) systems, they are called anaerobic. These two anaerobic systems are utilized for breath-hold diving, swimming against strong currents, sprints, hauling out of the water in full gear, or rescuing a heavy buddy. Regularly exercising at high speed and intensity for short bouts improves one’s anaerobic capacity. 5 Summary of Respiration and Circulation Processes The processes of respiration and circulation include six important, continuous phases: 1.

If openings to the air space are blocked on descent or ascent preventing pressure equalization, the air spaces can be mechanically distorted and injured. Injury from pressure change is called barotrauma. The Greek word baros, means weight or pressure, and trauma means injury. This section covers barotrauma during descent, as pressure increases on the air spaces of the ears, sinuses, lungs, and in certain pieces of diving equipment. 13). Each division functions separately to convert sound waves into nerve impulses going to the brain.

This section covers barotrauma during ascent, as decreasing pressure affects the lungs, gastrointestinal tract, teeth, and the space behind contact lenses. 1 Lungs—Pneumothorax If breathing is normal and there are not any lung lesions or conditions that obstruct air flow, lungs will vent expanding air on ascent without problem. If expanding air is blocked from exiting, the lungs will overinflate, thus damaging the alveoli and bronchial passages. Breath-holding or insufficient exhalation can create general lung barotrauma; obstruction from chronic or acute respiratory diseases, or bronchospasm with asthma, can result in localized lung overpressure and barotrauma.
