Book Description

The book provides a derivation of the models used for calculating the risk and hazard of central oxygen toxicity pertaining to diving based studies consistent with the research conducted earlier by the Royal Navy and the US Navy. This book forms the basis for extending the possibility of undertaking nitrox dives in combination with oxygen dives, thus, significantly increasing tactical capabilities of conducting diving special operations.

Features:

  • Provides derivation of the models used for calculating the risk and hazard of central oxygen toxicity.
  • Improves oxygen diving procedures described in the US Navy Diving Manual.
  • Includes procedures applicable to undertaking nitrox dives in combination with oxygen dives.
  • Pitches the material at highest technology readiness levels i.e. 9 TRL.
  • Aims to increase tactical capabilities of conducting diving special operations.

This book is aimed at researchers, professionals and graduate students in life support system design, diving submarine safety, ventilation, health, sanitary engineering, mining engineering, working environment in chambers or closed compartments.

Biography

Ryszard Klos graduated from Technical University of Wroclaw with a MSc degree in physico-chemistry. He started his professional carrier in Institute of Low Temperature and Structural Research, Polish Academy of Sciences, Wroclaw.

In 1985 he attended military training required of university graduates and graduated from Chemical Warfare College. Next year he joined the Polish Navy as platoon leader in Military Diving School. In 1988 he was transferred to the Naval Academy to the Department of Diving Gear and Underwater Work Technology where he earned his PhD in the field of Design and Operation of Machines. He completed a post-doctoral fellowship at the DR-DC Toronto (former: Defence and Civil Institute of Environmental Medicine). He defended his habilitation thesis (higher PhD thesis) in the field of Machine Operation at Gdansk University of Technology.

The author is a retired Polish Navy Captain. He is currently employed as associate professor at the Polish Naval Academy, where he is responsible for various diving and physicochemical research projects and programs. He has written 9 books and many scientific articles. From 2012 to 2015 he served as Deputy of Rector for Scientific Research at the Polish Naval Academy. From 2004 to 2007 he was a President of the Polish Hyperbaric Medical and Technical Society.
