On 16th April DRASS engineers Alberto Sartor and Enrico Pitzalis presented a 4-hour discourse on the theme Underwater and Hyperbaric Technologies at the Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine Masters Seminar at University of Padova, organized by Prof. Gerardo Bosco.
With real interest and strong participation from the audience, Alberto and Enrico discussed specific highlights from Drass’ rich history of subsea innovations spanning a century, from the pioneering era of underwater exploration to its present-day cutting-edge technologies, as well as its new horizons transforming submarine rescue and underwater automation as we know it.
The course also delved into other related topics such as HBOT (Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy) systems and its increasing role and value in medical treatments and disease prevention. Focus was also oriented to the certification of medical devices and to its correct application in hyperbaric chamber systems.
Finally, practical examples of chamber and fail-safe therapy management systems were presented, with special attention to the role played by hyperbaric technicians in the safety and reliability of medical HBOT systems.
