Prevention and treatment of decompression sickness using training and in-water recompression among fisherman divers in Vietnam
INTRODUCTION: Many fisherman divers in Vietnam suffer from decompression sickness (DCS) causing joint pain, severe neurological deficit or even death. The objective of this pilot study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a training programme to prevent DCS and also treat DCS using the method of in-water recompression (IWR). METHODS: 63 divers were interviewed and trained over a period of 3 years from 2009. Fifty one per cent of all trained divers were reinterviewed in 2011-2012 to collect mortality and morbidity data as well as information on changes in diving practices. RESULTS: Since 2009, most...

Activités professionnelles en conditions hyperbares
De nouvelles pratiques améliorant la sécurité et nécessitant un encadrement adapté Les travailleurs soumis à des conditions hyperbares, c'est-à-dire à une pression supérieure à la pression ambiante (> 100 hPa), interviennent en milieu immergé (scaphandriers, scientifiques, militaires, secours…) ou sans immersion (personnel médical, travailleurs creusant des tunnels…). Ils sont exposés aux risques inhérents à leur activité professionnelle, auxquels s'ajoutent des...
Z180.1-F13 - Air comprimé respirable et systèmes connexes
Ce document constitue la cinquième édition de la CSA Z180.1, Air comprimé respirable et systèmes connexes. Il remplace les éditions antérieures publiées en 2000, 1985, 1978 et 1973. Cette norme précise les exigences minimales qui, en l'absence de prescriptions contraires de l'autorité compétente, s'appliquent à la pureté de l'air des points de service des réseaux d'air comprimé respirable et aux systèmes utilisés pour sa production, son stockage et sa distribution...
Doppler monitoring of compressed air workers
QinetiQ was tasked by Morgan Est plc to provide Doppler technicians to monitor venous gas emboli (VGE) in compressed air tunnel workers from the Belfast Sewer Project. This report, presents an analysis of Doppler data, with reference to pre-existing information on Doppler monitoring of compressed air tunnel workers. QinetiQ Doppler technicians conducted the monitoring according to an approved ethical protocol. The pressure for the compressed air work exposures ranged from 0.67 to 1.8 bar gauge, with 21 work shifts monitored. Data were obtained from 65 Doppler monitoring sessions conducted on 17...
