Post Viral Debility, Chronic Fatigue, Long Covid & HBOT

Image by Gerd Altmann from Pixabay  For the longest time I’ve wanted to write something on this topic but haven’t quite been able to drill down on it enough to decisively say anything concrete. I’m not sure I can yet but with that in mind, and in the absence of much citation its prudent to label this one… Continue reading Post Viral Debility, Chronic Fatigue, Long Covid & HBOT

Preassure Swing Absorption (PSA) Units. Making Your Own Oxygen in a Time of Need and Dire Shortage.

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.

Pulmonary Gas Exchange / Gaseous Interchange

Image by Gerd Altmann from Pixabay  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… Continue reading Pulmonary Gas Exchange / Gaseous Interchange

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

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

Hypoxia Inducible Factor 1 & Wound healing in Diabetics

Photo by PhotoMIX Ltd. on Pexels.com 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,… Continue reading Hypoxia Inducible Factor 1 & Wound healing in Diabetics

Ophthalmology – HBOT and The Eyes

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

Spreading The Word of Others

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

Depression, Anxiety, Suicide, Mental Health & The Effect of Oxygen

Photo by Juan Pablo Arenas on Pexels.com In the overview we cover the topic of depression, albeit from a different angle. The theory put forward in that paper is not too distant from today's discussion on depression. Specifically depression and it's associated conditions at altitude or places of lower pressure. In the article discussing altitude,… Continue reading Depression, Anxiety, Suicide, Mental Health & The Effect of Oxygen

Hyperbaric Oxygen for Gas Gangrene

Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com 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. In the article on wound healing we discussed problematic wounds which are slow to heal or even do not heal at all. Some… Continue reading Hyperbaric Oxygen for Gas Gangrene

Hypoxia – The Common Denominator in Disease, Injury and Ill Health

Image by Derrick Sherrill from Pixabay Very often the question is posed, "what can Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) treat?" If we answer with a list of conditions, it generally follows the UHMS (Undersea and Hyperbaric Medicine Society) guidelines with some added conditions depending on who you ask, which are referred to as emerging conditions, off… Continue reading Hypoxia – The Common Denominator in Disease, Injury and Ill Health
