Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has proven beneficial for many types of wounds including diabetic ulcers, burns and wounds related to radiation therapy. But where did this technology come from? Who discovered oxygen? How did the Navy discover that divers could be treated for the bends in a hyperbaric chamber? How does hyperbaric science relate to airline pilots, deep sea divers and astronauts?
All these topics will be explored; from the first submariner to the largest hyperbaric chamber. The scientists throughout history have been gathered here along with their discoveries pertaining to hyperbaric environments. We employ hyperbaric science and the laws of gas every time we fl y in a jet, prepare food with a pressure cooker or even dive into a swimming pool.
Man has always been driven to discover the depths of the ocean.
But in ancient times, man was limited by the pressure that water exerts on him. How could a diver overcome this tremendous pressure? We, each and every human being on the face of the planet, have a column of air pushing down on us. This column of air goes from the top of our heads to the edge of outer space. So, the next time you feel you are under pressure, be sure to remember that YOU ARE!

About the Author:

Joseph Stewart is a modest licensed practical nurse who served his country in the Army during Desert Storm. He has worked in various medical fi elds including microbiology, chemistry, hyperbarics, medical-surgical nursing, hematology and autopsy. He does not aspire to become a writer, and this book was written solely because he found the history of hyperbarics an interesting topic. Joseph Stewart studied the experiments of others in hyperbarics and found their theories and results to be fascinating. Joseph Stewart entered the fi eld of hyperbarics himself and soon took an interest in the history of hyperbarics, but had diffi culty fi nding this history in any single book, and so began compiling his own history of hyperbarics, which he wanted to share with other enthusiasts. As for submersibles and atmospheric suits, Mr. Stewart would say that the evolution of the fi elds go hand in hand, as submarines are pressure vessels as well.
