Actually it does and it talks about performing the valsalva manuever. Thats interesting.

This isn't necessarily dangerous unless the subject in question has a high blood pressure since the valsalva maneuver can cause a temporary spike in systolic blood pressure of well over 400 mmHg.

However, fainting can also occur in healthy individuals.

I generally practice inhaling deeply during the eccentric half of a lift and exhaling as I perform the concentric half. It's also not a bad idea to take several deep breaths in between extremely heavy repetitions.
