Fire Safety and Prohibited Items – A Necessary Discussion

Image by succo from Pixabay  Potentially not one of the most exciting topics for discussion is fire and fire safety. However it is a necessary one and is presented today for those considering hyperbaric oxygen therapy. It's also not intended to appear as any form of fear mongering or dramatic over representation of risk. It is intended to… Continue reading Fire Safety and Prohibited Items – A Necessary Discussion

Whales, Turtles, Decompression and Hyperbaric Chambers

Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com A little while ago I fielded a question about breath hold divers of the non human kind. The question was simple enough, "Do dolphins and whales also benefit from the effects of higher pressure of oxygen as they dive, as humans do in a hyperbaric chamber?" The answer proved a… Continue reading Whales, Turtles, Decompression and Hyperbaric Chambers

Flying and Diving – A Sojourn Into Physics and Physiology

Photo by Skitterphoto on Pexels.com Departing a little from complimentary therapy applications today, we discuss diving and flying. Since hyperbaric technologies are in fact diving technologies, and diving accidents and illnesses are treated in hyperbaric chambers, it makes for an interesting sojourn. Remembering of course that in therapeutic treatments (diving or otherwise), we breathe pure… Continue reading Flying and Diving – A Sojourn Into Physics and Physiology
