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
