Title: Collaborative Diving Biomedical/Bioengineering Research and Development
Author: Lambertsen, CJ
Abstract: This Summary Cites Selected Research and Development Programs and Projects Having Present and Continuing Relevance Internationally to Advancement of Diving Effectiveness and Safety. The Summary is Not All~ Inclusive. It Emphasizes Opportunity for Continuing Close Collaboration and Technical Communication Between Sponsors and Laboratory Systems Involved, in Planning, in Mutual Support, and in Applications.Opportunity exists for National Agencies, International Petroleum and associated Industrial Offshore operations to again fully utilize the established scientific and technical assets related to the Institute For Environmental Medicine, which have directly provided much of the initial diving biomedical and bioengineering research responsible for improvement in diving capability required in support of operational development. The Institute and the related Ecosystems Technical Transfer functions have together continued fully active in performance of research and development needed for improvement iri effectiveness and safety in deep, moderate depth and shallow undersea activity. It remains the primary non-governmental laboratory system providing basic and applied biomedical information concerning human tolerance, adaptation, performance and safety in undersea operations.SCOPE OF PRESENT RESEARCH AND APPLICATIONS ACTIVITYDevelopment of New Forms of Respiratory Life Support Equipment for Deep and Shallow Operations. Fundamental Research Defining Tolerance of Human Organs to Toxic Effects of Hyperoxygenation. Development of Methods for Prominent Extension of oxygen Tolerance, to Improve Diving Capability, Decompression Safety, and Therapy of Diving Accidents . Advanced Decompression Procedures Development for Emergency, Deep and Shallow Operations. Investigations of Interactions of Physiologic and Toxic Effects of Respired Gases. Operation and Development of the International Diving Data System for Technical Transfer of Basic and Applied Research Information. Development and Operation of Offshore Operational Diving Record System. Determination of Mechanisms and Pathophysiology of Gas Lesion Diseases. Development of Improved Therapy of Gas Lesion Diseases. Development of Systems for Determinations of Physical and Mental Performance Capability Limits. Investigations of Voice Communication at High Ambient Pressures. The breadth of programs and projects involved provides extensive financial and technical matching support to participant agencies, supplementing gains of individual participation [Editor's note: project summary and background].
