    Transcript

    00:01 Great! We’ve talked about a lot of important things in this particular lecture.

    00:05 After this lecture, now you should be able to understand how increases in barometric pressure such as things that are associated with breath hold-diving affect the physiology.

    00:18 You should be able to identify the major physiological responses to decreases in barometric pressure both on acute and chronic levels.

    00:26 And finally, we went to the pathophysiology of altitude illnesses such as acute mountain sickness, high altitude cerebral edema, and high altitude pulmonary edema.

    00:36 And hopefully, you’ve garnered a couple of important issues with that.

    00:38 One is gradual ascension, is very important.

    00:41 And if the person is having problems, really the only way to fix this is to get them down to a lower barometric pressure.
