Necrotising Soft Tissue Infection – NSTI

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Staphylococcus_aureus#/media/File:Staphylococcus_aureus_VISA_2.jpg Following a request for some information on 'Necrotising Soft Tissue Infections' (NSTI's), or more commonly referred to as flesh eating bacterial infection, we scoured our own articles first, which highlighted that we don't have a specific dedicated article to this subject.

Genetics, Oxidative Stress and Endothelial Growth

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

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".

In many books and papers there are comparative images taken before and after HBOT directly illustrating the improvement. Empirical… Continue reading Wound Healing
