objective of the trial is to determine the benefit of HBO in the prevention
of osteoradionecrosis (ORN) subsequent to a surgical procedure in the
Experimental arm is Standard management plus HBO: Patients will undergo
20 HBO treatments prior to surgery followed by a further 10 daily HBO
treatments. For details of the standard management please visit the
HOPON webpage at: http://www.lctu.org.uk/trial/trial_info.asp?id=49&tgcode=2&menuid=30
Sites involved will be awarded £200 for each patient who completes
the trial. For more information please contact Mr. Matthew Bickerstaff

Marie Curie FP7-PEOPLE-2010-Initial Training Network program aims to
foster knowledge of decompression phenomena.
of the project are as follows:
an educational and research framework for cross-fertilization of research
activities focused on the physiopathology of decompression specifically
focusing on the formation of intravascular bubbles with their pathophysiological
and clinical consequences.
exchanges of fellows in mixed industrial-academic Research & Development
trajectories, thereby giving young researchers opportunities to share
research techniques and resources, and jointly participate in courses,
seminars, workshops and congress.
the career prospects of young researchers by embracing the whole chain
of research applied to decompression: epidemiological, clinical and
fundamental research, ground experimentation with professional divers
and applied research in industry for the management of decompression.
began in January 2011 and will finish in 4 years at the end of 2014.
It unites academic partners, international not-for-profit associations,
hyperbaric medical centres and industrial partners on an international
scale to provide a collaborative training and research programme for
Early Stage (ESR) and Experienced (ER) researchers.

Foundation, The Netherlands
Haldane Foundation (SHF) is an international institute for the training
and education of diving medical examiners and diving medicine physicians.
It was founded in 1976 to spread diving medical know-how among physicians
and to provide support for those wishing to attend international diving
medical meetings. In those old days, SHF also published a booklet about
diving medicine and issued a magazine for a short period of time.
After hibernating for a while, in 2003 a revived SHF started to develop
regular courses in diving and hyperbaric medicine (DHM). In the past
decade, over 2,000 physicians have participated in SHF courses. Though
SHFs origins lie in The Netherlands, courses have been run in
more than 20 countries, from Honduras to Indonesia and Tanzania to Belgium.
The SHF faculties consist of world-renowned specialists in diving medicine,
from Australasia, the USA and Europe.
The SHF courses also laid the fundamentals for a certification system
in The Netherlands for diving medical examiners and diving physicians.
Since 2011, SHF has been certified by the European College of Baromedicine
as providing internationally accredited courses in DHM. All courses
meet EDTC/ECHM guidelines, leading to certification as Medical Examiner
of Divers (level 1) or Diving Medicine Physician (DMP) (level 2d). The
programmes have a modular structure allowing students to attain certification
in several steps. Thanks to this modular design and the varied topics,
the courses also meet CME requirements.
As well as the diving medicine courses, SHF also organizes two internships
for the DMP certification. The first is in hyperbaric medicine and the
second focuses on the various diving systems used in both recreational
and professional diving. SHF is also involved in the organisation of
international conferences in DHM, most recently the very successful
first Tricontinental conference on Réunion Island in September
2013 for the EUBS, SPUMS and SAUHMA.

Meeting on Ultrasound for Diving Research - Ultrasound 2105
25 - 26th August 2015
Venue: The Swedish Armed Forces Diving and Naval Medical Centre (DNC),
meeting will bring together experts in the field of diving and decompression
physiology to discuss and educate on the use of ultrasound in assessing
the stress caused by decompression and the associated risk of decompression
sickness (DCS). The meeting will include a methodology consensus discussion
and hands-on workshops. The workshop is part of the Scott Haldane CME
programme for Medical Examiners of Divers (ECHM level 1) and Diving
Medicine Physicians (ECHM level 2d) accredited by the European College
Speakers include: Ron Nishi, Alf Brubakk, Neal Pollock, Jay Buckey and
organised by Lesley Blogg (SLB Consulting) and Andreas Mollerlokken
