Cardiopulmonary and metabolic responses of three groups, each consisting of five adult males (age 19-29) were determined before, during, and after a 2 hour exposure to 0.0.62 plus or minus 0.12 ppm NO2 at 25C and 45% RH. The three groups exercised during exposure at 40% of VO2 max for either 12, 30, or 60 min. for groups C, A, and B, respectively. During the exercise periods the ventilation was about 33 liters/min, a four-fold increase over the resting level. There were no physiologically significant cardiovascular, metabolic, or pulmonary function changes which could be attributed to exposure to this level of NO2 (0.62 ppm). There were no differences between the groups in their response despite the fact that groups A and B received more NO2 as a result of 28% and 84% greater ventilations, respectively.
