Dr. Yoshiyuki Honda died of acute heart failure on the morning of August 1, 2003 in the middle of his successive seven-day experiment on dyspnea induced by various kinds of combined administrations of hypercapnia and hypoxia. In fact, he fell in the battle that he had been pursuing his whole scientific life, for half a century—52 years.
