Abstract

A case of bradycardia is reported which was precipitated by cold normal saline applied to the eye during general anaesthesia. The history and physiology of the diving reflex is discussed and we believe that these data suggest that this patient's bradycardia was induced by the diving reflex, and not by the oculocardiac reflex.
