Filed under: Competitions — jome @ 8:22 am

The British Journal of Sports Medicine has published an interesting article about the “Passive Sinus Flooding” technique used by Patrick Musimu in his world records.

The abstract is viewable for free here, to view the full article you need to purchase it first.

Some interesting picks from the article:

-Patrick can perform the technique on dry land with a bottle of tap water. Water pressure is not involved. The technique is completely passive.

-The team has not come a cross any side effects, such as middle ear infections or sinusitis, which is suprprising

-According to the article, Patrick did not use packing for his deepest dives
