In diving, the oxygen supply to the body and especially to the brain is essential. This applies to bottle divers who have to cope with increased pressure conditions, as well as to snorkelers who also dive down. But especially for apnea divers who suppress the breathing reflex.
The breathing reflex can be triggered by various factors - by cold water, by arching the diaphragm when there is no air in the lungs, but above all by too much carbon dioxide. Breathing deeply several times before the dive lowers the CO₂ content in the body, which means that the subjective feeling of having to reach the surface to breathe occurs very late. But since the oxygen saturation has also fallen sharply, it can lead to fainting, which means that only about 10 seconds remain before the breathing reflex is triggered. This is one of the reasons why freediving should never be done alone.
Of course, we first make sure that you are fit for diving and, if necessary, carry out all necessary examinations. IHHT should be started early to give your body enough time to produce both more mitochondria and blood. On the one hand, the training optimizes the utilization of oxygen; on the other hand, there is more oxygen in your body, so that the risk of an undersupply is minimized and the apnea time is extended.
