You may be eligible to participate in a research study. Physically fit healthy non-smoking volunteers between the ages of 18 and 45 years are needed for a research study at Duke University Medical Center’s Center for Hyperbaric Medicine and Environmental Physiology.
The study will involve diving and training of the breathing muscles and its effect on endurance during diving. Prior to the study, subjects must come to the laboratory (4-5 hours) for a physical exam and testing, including an exercise test. Endurance during a dive will then be tested before and after 4 weeks of daily exercise of the breathing muscles. Subjects will be paid.
