With the world turned upside down, and much confusion about, it’s been a while since we published something new. Early on in the pandemic we dedicated a considerable amount of time to research into Covid19 and the benefit and effect HBOT may provide as a defence against it, as well as some online campaigning to further its use globally in

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

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 what information I can. Unfortunately, we ourselves do

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

Spreading The Word of Others

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. When we write, we do try to write for the patient

Hyperbaric Oxygen for Gas Gangrene

Covered in some ways in the previous article https://cumbria-hyperbaric.org/2019/08/06/wound-healing/ today’s discussion tightens the focus a little on the anti-bacterial and antibiotic properties of oxygen, specifically hyperbaric oxygenation.

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

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.
