Summary
The literature on fluid respiration is reviewed and reports are presented on the publications by twenty-three researchers, describing the various experiments performed, results obtained, problems encountered and possible future applications of this work. Certain investigators became interested in the mechanisms of death by drowning. Work progressed from this to purposely submerging animals in liquids to perfect a technique whereby the animals could survive a period of immersion. The object of this work was to test the feasibility of man's breathing liquid and thus overcoming many of the problems of diving compression and decompression. As work progressed, problems began to arise--poor CO2 diffusion, fluid and electrolyte imbalance, fatigue, et cetera, --which would appear to severely limit the usefulness to man of such a system.
