Side Effects and Contraindications

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 had worked on before. I’ve been asked

Carbon Dioxide Management in Confined Atmospheres

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 and hyperbaric. Operators and supervisors must have a

Carbon Dioxide and the Hyperbaric Environment

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 ones to have a solid understanding of. Divers

Physics, John Dalton and The Cumbrian Connection

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 otherwise source a chamber for use in the community, know that much behind the scenes work is continuing. Today, an

As we get into the final push for the community pantomime and Christmas preparations to close out the year, (and thanks to Border ITV for the coverage by the way and highlighting the community work we all do at the the theatre), short snippets are becoming the December favourite to pass on quick short and interesting bits of information and

The Who Behind The What -Website Information Update

Potentially one you’ve never heard of before. Accordingly, and while I was listening a

Diving Physics, The Training & Operations Manual, FIFO Services and … Pantomime?

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 be significant. It promises to be a

Necrotising Soft Tissue Infection – NSTI

Following a request for some information on ‘Necrotising Soft Tissue Infections’ (NSTI’s), or more commonly referred to as flesh eating bacterial infection, we scoured our own articles first, which highlighted that we don’t have a specific dedicated article to this subject. We also chose the lead image as a rather benign image of Staphylococcus Aureus, one of a few bacteria

Type 2 Diabetes, What It Costs The NHS and How HBOT Can Help – Drawing a Line Under Diabetes.

Although we have been a little quiet lately as we get more involved in seasonal preparations in the community, we are still keeping an ear to the ground for articles of interest. One such article from the Daily Mail came across our desktops this morning which is of great interest and also a source of great frustration to us. It
