Title: [abstract] OXYGEN PHYSIOLOGY RESEARCH AT THE ARMED FORCES INSTITUTE OF PATHOLOGY.
Author: Mehm, WJ; Roberts, FJ
Abstract: Since its formation in the summer of 1985, the Aerospace Physiology Research Division, Armed Forces Institute of Pathology, has been tasked with studying basic questions in oxygen physiology relating to high and low pressure environments. Studies of cell cultures, small animals, and humans are conducted by adjusting oxygen tensions through the use of specialized environmental habitats and pressure chambers. These techniques are used to study a variety of scientific areas to include wound healing, immune function, oxygen toxicity, decompression sickness, and altitude hypoxia. Thus, the program was established to provide the Department of Defense with a central research facility to study the effects of high altitude, and the mechanisms of action of hyperbaric oxygen and its adjunctive therapies. A discussion describing this new organization and its mission will be presented. Topics including organization structure, facilities, previous, current, and projected research will be discussed.
