  • Spinal Decompression Sickness in an Experienced Scuba Diver: A Case Report and Review of Literature. [Case Reports]
    Neurohospitalist 2019; 9(4):235-238Saadi A, Ferenczi EA, Reda H
  • Decompression sickness from diving is a rare but potentially reversible cause of spinal injury. Early treatment with hyperbaric oxygen is associated with a better neurologic outcome, making prompt recognition and management clinically important. We describe a case of a 65-year-old diver who presented with thoracic back pain and bilateral leg weakness after a 70 feet of sea water (fsw) (21 meters …
  • Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and Radiation-Induced Injuries. [Journal Article]
    Mo Med 2019 May-Jun; 116(3):198-200Kirby JP
  • Initial clinical uses of hyperbaric oxygen (HBO2) capitalized upon physical effects to drive offending gases back into solution and deliver more oxygen to tissues in early treatments of decompression sickness. HBO2 has a myriad of other effects, including stimulating angiogenesis and new cellular in growth for healing.
  • The Diagnosis of Decompression Sickness in Sport Divers. [Journal Article]
    Mo Med 2019 May-Jun; 116(3):195-197Kirby JP
  • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO2) remains the primary treatment for decompression sickness (DCS)-which can be obviously serious or infrequently more minor and can get missed outside of centers that routinely handling diving medicine. This review will point out the salient items for how sport or amateur divers might present for HBO2.
  • Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy as an Elective Treatment. [Journal Article]
    Mo Med 2019 May-Jun; 116(3):184-187Kirby JP
  • Hyperbaric oxygen therapies may have grown out of emergencies such as those for Decompression Sickness (DCS), but more commonly in the U.S., hyperbaric oxygen is used for much more elective problems. Wound healing applications lead this trend. Nationally many more hyperbaric centers exist to treat elective problems adjunctively, and this is a concise review of these indications as well as pointin…
  • Microparticle and interleukin-1β production with human simulated compressed air diving. [Journal Article]
    Sci Rep 2019; 9(1):13320Brett KD, Nugent NZ, … Thom SR
  • Production of blood-borne microparticles (MPs), 0.1-1 µm diameter vesicles, and interleukin (IL)-1β in response to high pressure is reported in lab animals and associated with pathological changes. It is unknown whether the responses occur in humans, and whether they are due to exposure to high pressure or to the process of decompression. Blood from research subjects exposed in hyperbaric chamber…
  • DCS or DCI? The difference and why it matters. [Editorial]
    Diving Hyperb Med 2019; 49(3):152-153Mitchell SJ
  • There are few issues that generate as much confusion in diving medicine as the nomenclature of bubble-induced dysbaric disease. Prior to the late 1980s, the diagnosis 'decompression sickness' (DCS) was invoked for symptoms presumed to arise as a consequence of bubble formation from dissolved inert gas during or after decompression. These bubbles were known to form within tissues, and also to appe…
  • Biphasic effects of autophagy on decompression bubble-induced endothelial injury. [Journal Article]
    J Cell Mol Med 2019Wang M, Zhang K, … Xu W
  • Endothelial dysfunction induced by bubbles plays an important role in decompression sickness (DCS), but the mechanism of which has not been clear. The present study was to investigate the role of autophagy in bubble-induced endothelial injury. Human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) were treated with bubbles, autophagy markers and endothelial injury indices were determined, and relationsh…
