    Aim- To determine the blood pressure (BP) changes in a simulated dive. Objective- To trigger human diving response in laboratory and to measure BP changes. Material and Method- Thirty healthy volunteers with no cardio-respiratory illness participated in this study. To simulate dive in laboratory basis, the volunteers were asked to submerge their head in a water (at around 15 ⁰C) filled plastic tub and hold their breath for 30 seconds. Their BP was measured using an automated instrument (Schiller’s multipara monitor).
