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 ongoing trials and reported success from around the world of

Pulmonary Gas Exchange / Gaseous Interchange

The lungs, as we know, are organs essentially not unlike large sacks filled with lots of smaller sacks. They facilitate the ingress of life giving oxygen to our biological systems. Each lobe of the lungs contains increasingly smaller chambers and pathways, the smallest being the alveoli. The lungs are central to the respiratory system and facilitate the exchange of outward

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 be significant. It promises to be a
