Hello again everyone. Long time no chat. It certainly feels like the last year has been longer than it really has. At a time when I was preparing to wind down efforts for the campaign and move the project to the backburner, I see a need has arisen to publish the below from our equipment… Continue reading Preassure Swing Absorption (PSA) Units. Making Your Own Oxygen in a Time of Need and Dire Shortage.
Image by Vektor Kunst from Pixabay 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… Continue reading COVID-19 – Safety & General Information Package for Oxygen Handlers
Image by CRAIG D from Pixabay CO2 Scrubbers Following Last week's excerpt from the training and ops manual on carbon dioxide, we round that off with an excerpt from the chapter covering support and allied equipment. Specifically, CO2 scrubbers, or sinks as they are also known. Gas management is the name of the game in all things diving… Continue reading Carbon Dioxide Management in Confined Atmospheres
Image by Gerd Altmann from Pixabay Rather an unusual topic for a blog dealing with hyperbaric oxygen therapy, but one of fairly significant importance when it comes to diving breathing gas and hyperbaric chamber internal atmospheres. Divers and supervisors work with gas physics daily and of all the gasses, CO2 is among a few of the most important… Continue reading Carbon Dioxide and the Hyperbaric Environment
Image by Free-Photos from Pixabay So we've been a little quiet on the writing front lately owing to seasonal commitments in the community. 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… Continue reading Diving Physics, The Training & Operations Manual, FIFO Services and … Pantomime?
Image by Tumisu from Pixabay 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… Continue reading Type 2 Diabetes, What It Costs The NHS and How HBOT Can Help – Drawing a Line Under Diabetes.
Photo by Mark Arron Smith on Pexels.com 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… Continue reading Ophthalmology – HBOT and The Eyes
Photo by Public Domain Pictures on Pexels.com 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… Continue reading Oxidative Stress, Free Radicals, RONS and Diabetes
Image by Gerd Altmann from Pixabay 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… Continue reading Genetics, Oxidative Stress and Endothelial Growth
Photo by Mark Neal on Pexels.com 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.… Continue reading Spreading The Word of Others
