BioLogic Pollution Mask and hypertension
i just saw an ad for this mask and it brings to mind a question about filter media resistance.
if you have high blood pressure (even if taking meds to lower it) filter masks (such as spray painting cartridge masks AND the blue paper disposable ones you see in hospitals) can cause your bp to go up. keep in mind you inhale harder when riding hard. you should contact the mfg'er about this. this is not a crack at biologic, just a headsup. and, though we all laugh at this one, 'ask your doctor if _____is right for you' next time you see him/her.
if you are hypertensive and using meds you CAN scuba dive- the regulator forces air into your lungs at sea-level pressure (~14 psi) on demand. cool, huh?
You know this is a cycling forum, right? Most of don't do much scuba diving.
the ad was on this site, and aimed at riders in smoggy areas.
