COVID-19 – Safety & General Information Package for Oxygen Handlers

Image by Vektor Kunst from Pixabay  Unprecedented times call for unprecedented measures. I imagine over the coming weeks and month’s oxygen administration may well be handled by many who may never have done so before. This might well be in the home or elsewhere. There is much to consider when handling oxygen and it seems prudent to share… Continue reading COVID-19 – Safety & General Information Package for Oxygen Handlers

Side Effects and Contraindications

Image by Alexas_Fotos from Pixabay  So we've been a little quiet lately on the writing front. This is due to an upcoming move. After 10 years in one place, it's time for a change. Accordingly, rather than writing broken biscuits from a distracted mind, I left it out for a bit. Today however, I found this one I… Continue reading Side Effects and Contraindications

Carbon Dioxide Management in Confined Atmospheres

Image by CRAIG D from Pixabay  CO2 Scrubbers Following Last week's excerpt from the training and ops manual on carbon dioxide, we round that off with an excerpt from the chapter covering support and allied equipment. Specifically, CO2 scrubbers, or sinks as they are also known. Gas management is the name of the game in all things diving… Continue reading Carbon Dioxide Management in Confined Atmospheres

Carbon Dioxide and the Hyperbaric Environment

Image by Gerd Altmann from Pixabay  Rather an unusual topic for a blog dealing with hyperbaric oxygen therapy, but one of fairly significant importance when it comes to diving breathing gas and hyperbaric chamber internal atmospheres. Divers and supervisors work with gas physics daily and of all the gasses, CO2 is among a few of the most important… Continue reading Carbon Dioxide and the Hyperbaric Environment

Physics, John Dalton and The Cumbrian Connection

Cumberland born, world renowned physicist John Dalton also known for his work in gas physics Having now come to almost the end of the seasonal commitments in the community, it seemed time to pop up with a final post or two before we shut down for the holiday season. While we continue to fundraise, or… Continue reading Physics, John Dalton and The Cumbrian Connection

The Who Behind The What -Website Information Update

Me in Durban Early In 2009 It recently occured to me that at the end of the day, when all else is set aside, its me that is directly asking the you, the community, to get behind a fairly big project with fairly big financial requirements for fairly big results and benefit. Potentially one you've… Continue reading The Who Behind The What -Website Information Update

Image by Free-Photos from Pixabay  So we've been a little quiet on the writing front lately owing to seasonal commitments in the community. Many who know us know that we have a solid track record of community involvement, especially around Christmas and the holidays when it's pantomime time. This year is no different and the work involved can… Continue reading Diving Physics, The Training & Operations Manual, FIFO Services and … Pantomime?
