Title: Symptoms of Oxygen Poisoning and Limits of Tolerance at Rest and at Work.
Author: Yarbrough, OD; Welham, W; Brinton, ES; Behnke, AR
Abstract: U.S. Navy divers were exposed to increased pressures while breathing 99.6 per cent oxygen. Observations were made with the subjects at rest and at work in both wet and dry environments. The following conclusions were drawn from these tests: Oxygen can be breathed by the quiescent individual in the dry chamber for periods of at least 2 hours at a simulated depth of 60 feet; In the wet chamber at 60 feet oxygen inhalation for a period of 10 minutes is consistent with safety; For underwater work the safe inhalation of pure oxygen is limited to a depth of 30 feet; and At a depth of 60 feet (at rest) some individuals are susceptible while others are consistently resistant to the toxic action of oxygen.
