The long term goal of this study is to develop methods to study lung physiology in live marine mammals and to use these techniques to investigate the mechanical properties of the respiratory system in different marine mammals. This effort is vital to understand how diving mammals manage inert and metabolic gases during diving and will help determine what behavioral and physiological responses increase DCS risk.
