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

Sight: Age Related Macular Degeneration, Diabetic Retinopathy and Central Retinal Ocular Occlusion

Image by analogicus from Pixabay  Today's science bit comes courtesy of our overview document. More specifically the chapter which covers aspects of the above title, but also thanks to the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS) themselves, and their article entitled: "Arterial Inefficiencies: Central Retinal Artery Occlusion". But before a finger gets pointed for misquoting anyone, the UHMS… Continue reading Sight: Age Related Macular Degeneration, Diabetic Retinopathy and Central Retinal Ocular Occlusion

Life Without Blood

Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com In 1959 a study was published in the Journal of cardiovascular surgery by a researcher and surgeon Dr Ite Borema. The brief synopsis to this is that in an experiment, researchers replaced the blood in pigs with ringers lactate solution and plasma, thus removing almost all the haemoglobin. Certainly they… Continue reading Life Without Blood

Benefits of HBOT for Sports Injury

By: Hayden Dunstan Covered in more detail in the paper entitled “Hyperbaric Oxygenation and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and Treatment – An Overview”, available for download on the website, sports injury and its associated complications can be relieved greatly and recovery can be accelerated with the help of HBOT. Swelling: As described under the heading ‘Oxygen… Continue reading Benefits of HBOT for Sports Injury
