    Hyperoxia- not just for divers anymore!

    Looks like divers aren't the only ones who need to be aware of hyperoxia:

    Issue has actually been a poorly understood concern within the Raptor community for a while now.

    "absorption atelectasis,” in which too much oxygen can wash away necessary nitrogen within the lungs and cause lung tissue to collapse."

    Sounds like Pulmonary O2 Toxicity.
    I am guessing maybe Nitrox 50 with some nitrogen will be a better choice.
    Perhaps the Raptor community can get a clue and learn from the diving community.

    Maybe they need a BOV just in case they get any symptoms?
