Enhanced Respiration

By boosting both lung efficiency and the blood’s oxygen-carrying capacity, the character can live comfortably in both high and low pressure environments, from 0.2 atmospheres to 5 atmospheres, with no dizziness or need for gradual decompression. In addition, the character can hold their breath for up to 30 minutes when performing minimal activity or for up to 10 minutes while performing highly strenuous activity. [Low]

The Enhanced Respiration bioware described above is partly what allows rusters to breathe the atmosphere of Mars. There are many exoplanets with atmospheres that are not breathable by normal transhumans, but that are close enough that they would be with a bit of modification (see What Worlds Are Breathable?). On some of these planets, rusters with standard enhanced respiration could breathe the air, but on others a different version of this biomod, specific to the atmosphere in question, may be called for at the same cost.
