  • U.S. Navy dive equipment emerging capabilities & procurement. - CAPT Thomas Murphy
  • Pulmonary oxygen toxicity: Prevention, mitigation, and treatment. - Aaron Hall, Ph.D.
  • Oxygen and wound healing: The good, the bad, and the evidence. - Harriet Hopf, MD
  • Advances in ultrasound microvascular imaging-Potential applications to HBO2? - Virginie Papadopoulou, Ph.D.

Objectives:

  1. Review auditory physiology and the pathophysiology of sudden sensorineural hearing loss
  2. Discuss the auditory and quality of life impairments as a result of profound, unilateral hearing loss
  3. Review the evidence-based recommendations for the work-up and treatment of sudden sensorineural hearing loss with specific attention to the indications for and outcomes following hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
  4. To briefly review the pathophysiology of decompression sickness and to highlight the interaction of bubble formation and inflammatory events in producing the recognized manifestations.
  5. To consider how knowledge of the inflammatory processes involved in DCS might influence treatment options, particularly in respect of pharmacologic adjuvants to hyperbaric oxygen treatment.
  6. Describe the NAVSEA 00C organization and it contributions to Salvage, Ships Husbandry, and Diving.
  7. Describe how the US Navy is advancing diving capability.
  8. Describe the T-ATS NAVAJO Class Vessel.
  9. Understand what pulmonary oxygen toxicity (PO2T) is and how it progresses.
  10. Understand current models used to manage O2 exposure to limit PO2T.
  11. Become familiar with potential new countermeasures for PO2T.
  12. This lecture will review the key roles of oxygen in wound healing and resistance to infection, with an emphasis on the contribution of reactive oxygen species. Considerations for patients with acute and chronic wounds, as well as for the use of normobaric and hyperbaric oxygen will be discussed.
  13. Explain how contrast-enhanced ultrasound imaging (CEUS) allows for microvascular imaging and perfusion quantification
  14. Differentiate between contrast-enhanced ultrasound imaging (CEUS) current clinical practice and preclinical research advances
  15. Evaluate potential contrast-enhanced ultrasound imaging (CEUS) role in HBO
  16. Overview of the NASA NEEMO saturation mission
  17. Talk about undersea medicine objectives of the NEEMO missions
  18. Overview animal mode utility in disease
  19. Criteria for a good animal model
  20. Translation examples in diving of animal model to human
