      ERIC P. KINDWALL, MD MEMORIAL LECTURE
      About Dr. Kindwall:

      KINDWALL PICDr. Kindwall is known by so many as the "Father of Hyperbaric Medicine.” Whether you knew him personally or simply by reputation, we have all benefited from his efforts, passion, wisdom, knowledge, energy and vision. Dr. Kindwall has played a great role in growing and shaping the specialty of Undersea and Hyperbaric Medicine. He was likewise instrumental in molding the UHMS into what it is today.  Dr. Kindwall began diving in 1950. He cultivated his interest in the field and during the Vietnam War served as the Assistant Director of the U.S. Navy School of Submarine Medicine. He also was the Senior Officer responsible for the Diving Medicine Program. In 1969, after leaving the Navy, Dr. Kindwall became Chief of the Department of Hyperbaric Medicine at St. Luke’s Medical Center, Milwaukee, Wis.  Shortly after the Undersea Medical Society was created in the mid-1960s, Dr. Kindwall identified the need for standardized education in the field. He created the UMS Education and Standards Committee to help elevate course content and ensure instructor competence. This committee later became our Education Committee. When the AMA initiated its Continuing Medical Education program, Dr. Kindwall persuaded the organization to recognize the UMS as a grantor of CME credits.  In 1972, Dr. Kindwall felt that the Society’s members would benefit from improved communication. He created our first newsletter and was named editor. Dr. Kindwall chose the name Pressure because clinical hyperbaric medicine was rapidly developing. Even though the UHMS had not yet incorporated "Hyperbaric” into the Society’s name, he wanted a title for the newsletter that would encompass all who worked with increased atmospheric pressure. He stated: "The Society’s goal then, as it is now, is to serve all who deal with the effects of increased barometric pressure.”  That same year, Dr. Kindwall recognized the need to have a relationship with Medicare to help provide insight on reputable clinical management. The UMS followed this lead, and a Medicare Panel was created. The recommendations were presented to the U.S. Public Health Service. The challenge was that no reliable hyperbaric medicine clinical guidelines were available that addressed appropriate applications of Hyperbaric Medicine. To remedy this deficit, the UMS Executive Committee created an Ad Hoc Committee on hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Dr. Kindwall was named Chair. The committee created the first Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Committee Report. Again, this text was published 10 years before the UHMS incorporated "Hyperbaric” into its name. The report was sent to HCFA and the Blues and became their source document for reimbursement. Dr. Kindwall updated the text two more times and thus was the Editor and Chair of the Committee and text for three of its 12 editions.  Dr. Kindwall later worked to expand the available information on the specialty by creating one of the first complete texts on the field. He created Hyperbaric Medicine Practice in 1994 and later updated and revised his text two more times.  The Society’s first journal, Hyperbaric Oxygen Review, has also has been influenced by Dr. Kindwall. His love for research and education was clear: He became the initial editor, creating a journal that at first consisted of review articles and one original contribution. Over the years,it has grown to one full of original research.  Dr. Kindwall’s presence is felt in so many of the UHMS’ activities and initiatives. Much of what we all take for granted – what is just "there” and "available” – has his touch and influence. Some of us have been blessed to have had a closer impact by Dr. Kindwall’s life, but I think that I can easily say that each of us has been influenced in some way.

      CHRISTIAN J. LAMBERTSEN, MD, DSc (Hon) MEMORIAL LECTURE
      About Dr. Lambertsen:

      LAMBERTSEN PIC

      Dr. Christian J. Lambertsen received a B.S. Degree from Rutgers University in 1938 and a M.D. Degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 1943. During his medical school period, he invented and first used forms of the initial U.S. self-contained closed-circuit oxygen rebreathing apparatus, for neutral buoyancy underwater swimming and diving. As a student, he aided the early Office of Strategic Services (O.S.S.) in establishing the first cadres of U.S. military operational combat swimmers. Dr. Lambertsen became a U.S. Army medical officer on graduation from medical school in early 1943, and immediately joined the O.S.S. Maritime Unit on active duty through its period of function in World War II. He joined the University of Pennsylvania Medical Faculty in 1946, and became Professor of Pharmacology in 1952. While a faculty member he combined diving research and further underwater rebreathing equipment developments for the Army and Navy. In 1967 he served as Founding President of the Undersea Medical Society (now Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society.) Dr. Lambertsen is recognized by the Naval Special Warfare community as "The Father of U.S. Combat Swimming.” His hand has touched every aspect of military and commercial diving. Dr. Lambertsen’s active contributions to diving began during WWII and became even more progressive in the post-war period through the evolutions of the U.S. Navy Deep Submergence and Naval Special Warfare developmental programs.

      Plenary: Advances in ultrasound microvascular imaging - potential applications to HBO2?:
      Virginie Papadopoulou, PhD

      About the lecuture:

      This presentation focuses on new techniques for Papadopoulou imagemicrovascular imaging and perfusion quantification using contrast-enhanced ultrasound imaging (CEUS) that may be of interest in the context of HBO2. Microbubble ultrasound contrast agents (UCAs) have over two decades of use in echocardiography applications in the USA as well as non-cardiac imaging in the rest of the world. They are expected to increase in use with the FDA approving them for the first time in 2016 for non-cardiac applications in the USA, and the approval in 2017 of Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes opening the door to reimbursement. In particular, they offer advantages for longitudinal follow-up of patient response due to their lower adverse reaction rates than CT/MR contrast agents, relative inexpensiveness and non-radiation use. We review their current use in cardiovascular disease and oncological applications, as well as research advances in ultrafast, volumetric, and super-resolution imaging that can provide vascular and blood flow velocity maps at micrometer scale at multiple centimeters depth. We discuss clinical and preclinical research examples for how these techniques have been used to monitor and predict response to microvascular-remodeling therapy. We finish by illustrating their potential in image-guided therapeutic applications, such as opening the blood-brain barrier to enhance drug delivery, increasing tumoral, trans-epithelial or biofilm drug delivery, modulating tumor hypoxia, and enhancing sonothrombolysis and focused ultrasound surgery.

      About Dr. Papadopoulou:
      Dr Papadopoulou is an Assistant Professor at UNC Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA. Her research aims to bridge the different areas dealing with bubbles in the bloodstream, from environmentally triggered endogenous bubbles, to engineered contrast agents for ultrasound imaging and therapy. She joined the laboratory of Prof. Paul Dayton at UNC Chapel Hill in 2016, where her research focuses on in vivo cancer imaging and therapy, as well as minimizing decompression stress from scuba diving. She works on assessing tumor neovascularization with novel ultrasound imaging techniques, optimizing trans-epithelial drug transport with acoustically-active nanodroplets and improving radiation therapy using oxygen microbubbles. She is also the 2017 recipient of the Divers Alert Network/Bill Hamilton Memorial Grant, awarded by the Women Divers Hall of Fame, for her on-going work translating state-of-the-art ultrasound microbubble imaging techniques to create a dynamic assessment of decompression bubbles. Previously, she worked in the laboratory of Dr Meng-Xing Tang at Imperial College London where she developed an ultrasound imaging prototype to acquire 3D vascular flow dynamics in healthy volunteers. She received her PhD in Bioengineering from Imperial College London in 2016, where her thesis focused on bubble formation, growth and circulation dynamics in vivo from hyperbaric decompression, relevant to scuba divers and astronauts to prevent decompression sickness. Concurrently as an EU-funded Marie Curie fellow and COST member, she spent time in Belgium working on hyperbaric physiology and in Greece on degassing bubble growth instrumentation.
