Pulmonary diffusion capacity for carbon monoxide (DLCO), regional electrical impedance (Z0), and the distribution of technetium-99m-labeled erythrocytes together with concentration of plasma atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) were determined before and after a 6-min "all-out" row in nine oarsmen and in six control subjects. Two and one-half hours after exercise in the upright seated position, DLCO was reduced by 6 (-2 to 21; median and range) %, the thoracic-to-thigh electrical impedance ratio (Z0 thorax/Z0 thigh) rose by 14 (-1 to 29) %, paralleled by a 7 (-3 to 11) % decrease and a 3 (-5 to 12) % increase in the thoracic and thigh blood volume, respectively. These responses were associated with a decrease in the plasma ANP concentration from 15 (13-31) to 12 (9-27) pmol/l (P < 0.05). Similarly, in the supine position, Z0 thorax/Z0 thigh increased by 10 (-5 to 28) % when DLCO was reduced 12 (6-26) % (P < 0.05), whereas DLCO remained stable in the control group. The increase in Z0 thorax/Z0 thigh and the corresponding redistribution of the blood volume in both body positions show that approximately one-half of the postexercise reduction of DLCO is explained by a decrease in the pulmonary blood volume. The role of a reduced postexercise central blood volume is underscored by the lower plasma ANP, which aids in upregulating the blood volume after exercise in athletes.
