• Evolution of the plasma proteome of divers before and after a single SCUBA dive 

      Lautridou, Jacky; Pichereau, Vianney; Artigaud, Sébastien; Bernay, Benoit; Barak, Otto; Hoiland, Ryan; Lovering, Andrew T; Eftedal, Ingrid; Dujic, Zeljko; Guerrero, François (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Purpose: Decompression sickness (DCS) is a poorly understood and complex systemic disease caused by inadequate desaturation following a reduction of ambient pressure. A previous proteomic study of ours showed that DCS ...
    • Functional profiling reveals altered metabolic activity in divers’ oral microbiota during commercial heliox saturation diving 

      Monnoyer, Roxane; Eftedal, Ingrid; Hjelde, Astrid; Deb, Sanjoy Kumar; Haugum, Kjersti; Lautridou, Jacky (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Background: The extreme environment in saturation diving affects all life forms, including the bacteria that reside on human skin and mucosa. The oral cavity alone is home to hundreds of different bacteria. In this study, ...
    • Hemoglobin during and following a four-week commercial saturation dive to 200 meters 

      Luczynski, Damian; Lautridou, Jacky; Hjelde, Astrid; Monnoyer, Roxane; Eftedal, Ingrid (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Commercial saturation divers must acclimatize to hyperbaric hyperoxia in their work environment, and subsequently readjust to breathing normal air when their period in saturation is over. In this study, we measured hemoglobin ...
    • Shifts in the oral microbiota during a four-week commercial saturation dive to 200 meters 

      Monnoyer, Roxane; Haugum, Kjersti; Lautridou, Jacky; Flatberg, Arnar; Hjelde, Astrid; Eftedal, Ingrid (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      During commercial saturation diving, divers live and work under hyperbaric and hyperoxic conditions. The myriads of bacteria that live in and on the human body must adjust to the resultant hyperbaric stress. In this study, ...
