Disorder of the respiratory system is a major cause of professional diver disqualification. Pulmonary function assessment is an essential component of diver fitness evaluation. Forced vital capacity (FVC), forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) and peak expiratory flow rates (PEFR) of 100 Indian divers are presented. They had much higher FVC, FEV1 and PEFR than those predicted for Indian general populace.
