Re: DIY - discussion on building a DIY hookah diving compressor
Just a quick question about holding one's breath on an ascent after breathing compressed air. Wouldn't one naturally want to exhale as the chest expands? I've been a diver for almost 30 years and a snorkeler for almost 45 years. I've compacted the air in my lungs on the surface for a deeper free dive and it's difficult to slurp in a little more air. It's hard for me to imagine someone holding their breath and popping their lungs without warning signs from the body, but I read the warnings all the time on the internet.
