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

Type 2 Diabetes, What It Costs The NHS and How HBOT Can Help – Drawing a Line Under Diabetes.

Although we have been a little quiet lately as we get more involved in seasonal preparations in the community, we are still keeping an ear to the ground for articles of interest. One such article from the Daily Mail came across our desktops this morning which is of great interest and also a source of great frustration to us. It

Hypoxia Inducible Factor 1 & Wound healing in Diabetics

It seems and age since we shared anything not related to the unfortunate Charity Commission news and the seemingly odd choice of the health authorities to ignore outright the scientific community. As they say though, onward and upward. Accordingly, albeit a short snippet, today’s discussion revisits wound healing briefly, with further support from the aforementioned science fraternity in the form

Ophthalmology – HBOT and The Eyes

Todays continuation on the sharing of others’ work theme involves an exceptional paper published by Heather Murphy-Lavoie of Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in New Orleans. Also published in “Optometry – Journal of the American Optometric Association” in 2010, It is linked in here and entitled: Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy And The Eye In many ways it supports our own

Oxidative Stress, Free Radicals, RONS and Diabetes

Revisiting the often overstated topic of oxygen toxicity and oxidative stress at the cellular level, today’s paper and sharing of the work of others addresses, as a few other recent ones have, that HBOT provides it’s own protective mechanisms against oxidative stress caused by reactive oxygen and nitrogen species (RONS). It is established that hyperbaric oxygen therapy increases and triggers

Genetics, Oxidative Stress and Endothelial Growth

Today’s snippet article only just touches on the subject of genetics. This is a field often beyond what most practitioners and chamber personnel need to be concerned with. It is interesting science though. As we know genetic expression underlies biological function. Things like transcription factors and proteins which trigger genetic regulation are what drive whether a gene is “switched on”
