I was disappointed in this video. I thought you were gonna actually address breathing under water, evolution possibly.

I'm assuming it won't ever be efficient for adults with normal A & A2 hemoglobin. Premies on the other hand, will benifit the most.

1:45 How do they make it so only part of your lungs has the fluid and part is air? I have absolutely no clue how you'd actually go about doing that, in your description.
