Much obliged Kim, Alan and David; I'd never come across that.

I think I can more or less picture how lungs might collapse, and did a quick search: http://www.oocities.org/spirit_of_the_dolphin/anatomydolphin.html

I think it would surprise most people to learn, though, that whales and dolphins breath out before diving. And I guess, being among the politest of mammals (the dolphins anyway), their stomachs refrain from producing any gas? Or does it just not linger?
