The authors examined the success rate and ease-of-use
ratings of an IO device, the NIO ® (New Intraosseous
Persys Medical, Houston, TX, USA) in comparison to
the Arrow ® EZ-IO ® (Teleflex Medical Research
Triangle Park, NC, USA) by novice users.

Guidelines for the pre-hospital management of
decompression illness (DCI) had not been formally
revised since the 2004 Divers Alert network /
Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society workshop in
Sydney, entitled “Management of mild or marginal
decompression illness in remote locations”. The Diver’s
Alert Network initiated a recent review undertaken by
an international committee with members from
Australasia, the USA, and Europe.

I-gel® is a second generation supraglottic airway
device from Intersurgical and predsented in our
website through this link: https://diving-rov-

The optimal size of the I-Gel remains unclear since the
manufacturer's weight-based formula (size 3 for
weight < 50 kg, size 4 for weight 50-90 kg, and size 5
for weight > 90 kg) for the laryngeal mask airway I-Gel
is not evidence-based. The authors hypothesized that
sex might also guide the choice of I-Gel size.

Hyperbaric chambers and underwater environments
are challenging and at risk of serious accidents.
Personnel aiming to assist patients and subjects should
be appropriately trained, and several courses have
been established worldwide. In healthcare, simulation
is an effective learning technique. However, few peer-
reviewed articles have been published in the medical
literature describing its use in diving and hyperbaric

High flow nasal oxygen is a relatively new option for
treating patients with respiratory failure, which
decreases the work of breathing, improves the tidal
volume, and modestly increases positive end-expiatory
Despite well-described physiologic benefits, the clinical
impact of high flow nasal oxygen is still under
investigation. In this article, the authors review the
most recent findings on the clinical efficacy of high
flow nasal oxygen in Type I, II, III, and IV respiratory
failure within adult and pediatric patients.

Oxygen is probably the most commonly prescribed
drug in the emergency setting and is a life-saving
modality as well. However, like any other drug, oxygen
therapy may also lead to various adverse effects.
Patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
(COPD) may develop hypercapnia during
supplemental oxygen therapy, particularly if
uncontrolled. The risk of hypercapnia is not restricted
to COPD only; it has also been reported in patients
with morbid obesity, asthma, cystic fibrosis, chest wall
skeletal deformities, bronchiectasis, chest wall
deformities, or neuromuscular disorders.
