The Physiology and Medicine of Diving Book Excerpt:

In the ten years since the third edition of this work, recreational diving has become increasingly available worldwide and commercial diving has consolidated its operational experience at record depths. From continued research there has come a greater understanding of many of the problems associated with the physiological, bio-engineering and medical aspects of exposure to raised environmental pressure. Increased human activity in this unforgiving environment requires a fresh appraisal of the current state of knowledge in this field. An authoritative team of contributors has been assembled to produce a new edition of this established series of scientific and medical reviews. It contains much new material: every chapter has been revised and many have been completely rewritten. The physiological basis of safe diving, the pathogenesis of diving illnesses and the management of diving accidents are all covered, many from the perspectives of new authors, and new chapters include fitness to dive, hyperbaric oxygen therapy and the possible long-term effects of diving. This volume will be valuable for all divers who wish to be expert in this field and is essential reading for health professionals of every speciality who, at any time, may become involved with divers or diving, in the assessment and prevention of diving related illnesses or in response to a diving accident.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Indications Book Excerpt:

The Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS) is an international, non-profit organization serving over 2,400 members from more than 50 countries. The UHMS is the primary source of scientific information for diving and hyperbaric medicine physiology worldwide, the breadth of which is illustrated in the triennial report, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Indications. With leading experts authoring chapters in their respective fields, this publication continues to provide the most current and up to date guidance and support for scientists and practitioners of hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Indications, currently in its thirteenth edition, has grown in size and depth to reflect the evolution of the literature on the approved use of hyperbarics from both a clinical practice standpoint and insurance coverage perspective. To date, the committee recognizes fourteen indications, including the new indication, idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss. Additionally, this book continues to be used by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and other third party insurance carriers in determining payment for HBO2 services.

Hyperbaric Oxygenation Therapy Book Excerpt:

This book focuses on hyperbaric oxygenation (HBO) therapy from the molecular biology perspective and its clinical applications, including molecular mechanisms of HBO’s positive effect on cellular function in hypoxic tissues. HBO is a therapeutic tool that enhances oxygen supply to hypoxic tissues and improves wound healing/tissue remodeling. Currently HBO therapy is applied to a wide range of clinical cases, which include not only acute hypoxic diseases but also many chronic and refractory diseases involving tissue hypoxia or intractable infection. HBO therapy is a well-recognized regimen for many researchers and clinicians. The first half of the book outlines basic molecular mechanisms of HBO and their potential applications for clinical activities, while the second half describes the rationale behind introducing HBO therapy into suitable clinical cases and presents successful clinical reports. It is primarily written for HBO clinicians, physiologists and basic research scientists, but is also of interest to clinicians who have an interest in this field considering introducing HBO therapy.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Book Excerpt:

"It can help reverse the effects of strokes and head injuries. It can help heal damaged tissues. It can fight infections and diseases. It can save limbs. The treatment is here, now, and is being successfully used to benefit thousands of patients throughout the country. This treatment is hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT)." "Safe and painless, HBOT uses pressurized oxygen administered in special chambers. It has been used for years to treat divers with the bends, a serious illness caused by overly rapid ascensions. As time has gone on, however, doctors have discovered other applications for this remarkable treatment. In Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, Dr. Richard Neubauer and Dr. Morton Walker explain how this treatment overcomes hypoxia, or oxygen starvation in the tissues, by flooding the body's fluids with life-giving oxygen. In this way, HBOT can help people with strokes, head and spinal cord inquiries, and multiple sclerosis regain speech and mobility. When used to treat accident and fire victims. HBOT can promote the faster, cleaner healing of wounds and burns, and can aid those overcome with smoke inhalation. It can be used to treat other types of injuries, including damage caused by radiation treatment and skin surgery, and fractures that won't heal. HBOT can also help people overcome a variety of serious infections, ranging from AIDS to Lyme disease. And, as Dr. Neubauer and Dr. Walker point out, it can do all of this by working hand in hand with other treatments, including surgery, without creating additional side effects and complications."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Gas Bubble Dynamics in the Human Body Book Excerpt:

Gas Bubble Dynamics in the Human Body provides a broad range of professionals, from physicians working in a clinic, hospital or hyperbaric facility, to physical scientists trying to understand and predict the dynamics of gas bubble behavior in the body, with an interdisciplinary perspective on gas-bubble disease. Both iatrogenic and decompression-induced gas bubbles are considered. The basic medical and physiological aspects are described first, in plain language, with numerous illustrations that facilitate an intuitive grasp of the basic underlying medicine and physiology. Current issues in the field, particularly microbubbles and microparticles, and their possible role in gas-bubble disease are included. The physical and mathematical material is given at several levels of sophistication, with the "hard-core" math separated out in sections labelled "For the Math Mavens", so that the basic concepts can be grasped at a descriptive level. The field is large and multi-disciplinary, so that some of the discussion that is at a greater depth is given separately in sections labelled "In Greater Detail". Skipping these sections for whatever reason, shouldn’t materially hamper acquiring an overall appreciation of the field. Demonstrates how physical and mathematical tools help to solve underlying problems across physiology and medicine Helps researchers extend their competence and flexibility to the point that they can personally contribute to the field of hyperbaric medicine and physiology, or to other related biological problems that may interest them Provides clinicians with explicit examples of how mathematical modelling can be integrated into clinical treatment and decision-making
