About Me

I work in a department of Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine for around 20 years. The tasks of our department include training, research, clinical treatment with hyperbaric oxygen, and providing medical support for deep diving at sea. I’m interested in the research and treatment of decompression illness (DCI), which refers to any medical disorder, illness, or injury arising as a result of decompression from higher to lower ambient pressure. This includes decompression sickness (DCS) related to gas freed from solution in tissues during decompression and arterial gas embolism (AGE) usually caused by penetration of alveolar gas into the circulation, one of the critical complications of pulmonary barotrauma (PBT). DCI is rare in comparison with other illnesses and many physicians are inexperienced in its treatment.
