With the cooperation of the United States Navy, CHINFO and numerous commands with a diving capability, NAVY DIVER is destined to become the definitive text on US Navy Diving programs today.

Whether recovering debris from an air disaster, searching for explosive ordnance, clearing obstacles on an enemy beach, or changing the twenty-ton screws on an aircraft carrier, navy divers perform difficult tasks under cold, dark hazardous conditions.

This illustrated reference book is the most comprehensive overview of United States Navy Divers available to the public today. An elaborate, oversized, hard-cover book, packed with full-color photos from the highlights of diving history, navy diving equipment, diver training, and organization to the present day global war on terrorism; it deserves a place of honor on your bookshelf!

Although United States Navy Diver; Performance Under Pressure primarily documents navy diving today; the divers, scientists and engineers of the US Navy Diving Program have spent over a century pushing the limits of human endurance and technology to improve both diver safety and operational capabilities. This is their story, their photos and their experiences.

Readers will absorb the text and photographs with a feeling of pride and appreciation for those who have proudly served our nation as Navy Divers.

From the Foreword: "Revision 6 represents the largest change to diving procedures since 1956..."

The 6th Revision to diving procedures serves as the internationally recognized standard for allowable exposure while breathing compressed air at varying depths.

This new Revision 6 of the United States Navy Diving Manual, released April 2008, represents the culmination of research and empirical validation of the air diving tables contained herein. Included is the Thalmann Algorithm as the basis of a new Air Table. In addition to Thalmann, the efforts of two individuals stand above all others in analyzing and meticulously documenting the end product for this most comprehensive revision to the U.S. Navy Diving Manual in fifty years. Those individuals are Dr. Edward T. Flynn, Captain, MC, USN (Ret.) Office of the Supervisor of Salvage & Diving and Dr. Wayne A. Gerth, Ph.D., of the Naval Experimental Diving Unit.

Future Navy and civilian divers as yet unborn owe these men a debt of gratitude for the inherently safer diving that will result from their untiring labor and razor sharp intellect.

This US Navy Diving Manual is available on CD ROM. It can be viewed on a PC or Mac, or printed directly from the CD in color or black and white. It is designed for your convenience and portability.

Item Description: This Wagner Ulcer Grade Classification Poster is a necessity for wound care centers and especially for facilities and institutions that include hyperbaric chambers. The illustrations are highly detailed and easy to comprehend.

The Wagner Ulcer Grade Classification System is used to establish the presence of depth and infection in a wound. More recently this Classification System has been helpful in identifying diabetics with wounds of the lower extremity. The addition by Medicare of a new treatable indication with hyperbaric oxygen therapy of the DIABETIC WOUNDS OF THE LOWER EXTREMITY has brought the Wagner Ulcer Scale into the spotlight.

The poster includes a guide on HYPERBARIC OXYGEN THERAPY and at what point it can be initiated for patients suffering from diabetic wounds of the lower extremities. It offers details on hyperbaric oxygen therapy and which ICD-9-CM codes are acceptable (mainly by CMS/Medicare) for HBO therapy - information comes from the (NCD) National Coverage Determination by Medicare as well as the latest (LCD's) published by numerous Medicare contractors throughout the USA.

Having this poster readily available in the treatment room can give your physicians and practitioners confidence in grading their diabetic wounds of the lower extremity appropriately. The educational value of this poster is tremendous and it also acts as a constant guide for busy practitioners.

The all NEW Wagner Scale Poster is printed on high quality stock and measures at 18" x 24".

Chronic wounds are a major cause of patient suffering and a profound financial burden to society. The focus of this long awaited Second Edition is assessment and management of chronic wounds in a Wound Care Practice. Physicians, podiatrists, nurses, enterostomal therapists, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other health care professionals will find in this book the principles of modern, moist, interactive wound care, and the application of advanced therapeutic technologies.

As the complexity of wound management increases, clinicians come to the field from many diverse specialties. This book represents the combined efforts of 65 authors selected from the basic sciences and clinical practice who bring their insights and unique experiences to these two volumes and enhance its value both as an educational text and as an enduring reference. Because of the wealth of knowledge and growth in wound care technology this new Second Edition of the definitive text Wound Care Practice has expanded into two volumes.

Book Review:
"Sheffield and Fife's Second Edition of Wound Care Practice really is a veritable Who's Who in modern wound management. This new two-volume edition covers every aspect of standard of care in wound management as well as addressing ethics and legal medicine pertinent to this sub-specialty. This text would be appropriate for the wound management novice as well as the seasoned veteran. The editors have organized and developed the material in a very instinctive sequence beginning with the very basics of wound physiology and biochemistry, then on to wound management of numerous different etiologies. The second volume addresses more wound management basics including nutrition and pain management, as well as more specialized areas relating to wound management in the elderly and the very young. The chapters are well written and the text is nicely illustrated. Students of wound management will find the review questions at the end of each chapter very helpful when preparing for certification exams. Any individual or wound management center looking for a single reference that is comprehensive and concise will find the Second Edition of Wound Care Practice by Drs. Sheffield and Fife very readable and authoritative."

This new book is an exciting compilation of stories and light hearted personal accounts of deep commercial "mixed-gas" diving in the 1960's and beyond. It is about the divers who experienced and experimented with helium gas and other emerging diving technologies of that era.

Written by a commercial diver that was there, working in deep water construction, offshore oil, and underwater salvage. For the retired divers this book will bring back memories, and for the younger divers, it will hold their interest. A commercial diver's must read!

Book Review:
"Very interesting, very descriptive...stories of working divers - their memories and adventures, a good read"
-Leonard Greenstone, US Navy Salvage Diver, Ret.
