A story about a little fish – HBOT… Not just for the peoples

Emporor Chow Enjoying the Midwater I trust this finds everyone safe and well during the lockdown and extended period of various isolation and distancing in which we now find ourselves. Good news from around the word is that HBOT is fast gaining momentum as a preferred treatment for COVID-19 with no fewer than a dozen… Continue reading A story about a little fish – HBOT… Not just for the peoples

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

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

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

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?

Spreading The Word of Others

Photo by Mark Neal on Pexels.com What began as a few lines in a Facebook post to introduce a paper recently published in the US became a little long winded, so is better shared as a "snippet article". On occasion we take a break from writing and do some reading of what others have written.… Continue reading Spreading The Word of Others

Oxygen Tolerance – Part Three – Pulmonary Oxygen Toxicity & The Repex Method

Image by Michael Schwarzenberger from Pixabay  Following the first two installments of the toxicity discussion, we address the sometimes misunderstood and consequently overstated subject of pulmonary toxicity. This relates to the effect that long term oxygen breathing on a repetitive basis can have on the lungs. Being a fairly long article, and not all readers want all of… Continue reading Oxygen Tolerance – Part Three – Pulmonary Oxygen Toxicity & The Repex Method

Oxygen Tolerance – Part Two – Cerebral / CNS Toxicity

Continued from the introduction, this is a form of toxicity or intolerance that affects the central nervous system including the spinal cord and the brain. In extreme cases it can lead to grand mal (generalized tonic-clonic seizure) like convulsions, and unconsciousness. These have no lasting effect and cause no lasting damage with no sequelae and… Continue reading Oxygen Tolerance – Part Two – Cerebral / CNS Toxicity

Oxygen Tolerance – Myth Vs Fact – An Introduction To a Three Part Series

Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com Medical professionals will notice I head this article “Oxygen Tolerance” as opposed to “Oxygen Toxicity” as it has more commonly been known. Most medical doctors consider excess oxygen toxic to humans. This is partly why administration of hyperbaric oxygenation is largely misunderstood and accordingly, avoided in mainstream medicine. Many doctors… Continue reading Oxygen Tolerance – Myth Vs Fact – An Introduction To a Three Part Series

What’s it like? – The Hyperbaric Environment and Hyperbaric Administration of Oxygen

Multiplace Chamber Courtesy Hayden Dunstan Borrowing from previous articles reproduced here is a definition of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. HyperBaric Oxygen Therapy is described as the medical administration of pure or near pure oxygen at higher than atmospheric (Normobaric) pressure. As discussed in those articles, and explained previously, hyper-oxygenation is facilitated by an increased pressure differential… Continue reading What’s it like? – The Hyperbaric Environment and Hyperbaric Administration of Oxygen
