The alliance with COMEX gives rise to a new structure immediately operational : “SAAS OFFSHORE”. Granted with broad skills, significant resources and a strengthened fleet, it offers as of now expertise and action capabilities on and under the sea, in line with the requirements of blue economy stakeholders, on the entire Atlantic and Channel coasts, in the Mediterranean and worldwide.


With this operation, SHIP AS A SERVICE®, well established in the sector of marine and subsea expertise missions, broadens its fields of action while developing its range of services. The company is now able to propose technical, economical and effective solutions for all types of operations at sea, supported by a highly experienced team using operational means, with a (sea)proven track record.

With the creation of SAAS OFFSHORE, the company based in Lorient (French Brittany) carries on with its quest for innovation over the big blue sea. Its Clients will be able to operate further, longer, deeper… and above all, faster at sea.

The outlooks of SAAS OFFSHORE are promising : not only is it granted with high-performance resources, but the whole COMEX MARINE team (engineers, technicians, surveyors, sailors and ROV pilots) has joined the new structure. Thanks to this reinforcement, the company will be able to carry out, independently, even more wreck search campaigns, subsea structures surveys, seabed mapping, deployment, inspection and maintenance of oceanographic sensors, sea trials support, UXO surveys, harbours and offshore structures inspections, etc.

The new structure builds on what has made COMEX MARINE and SHIP AS A SERVICE® so successful, i.e. offering missions and turnkey solutions designed and carried out by a single contractor with a strong operational culture, more results-driven than “vessel chartering”.


SHIP AS A SERVICE® technical means available for its Clients :

– JANUS2 et MINIBEX, 2 offshore vessels with dynamic positioning, fitted for survey campaigns and sea trials support. – 7 multipurpose and fast coastal workboats. – 7 ROVs able to dive up to 2700m. – Aerial drones. – A range of instruments including several sonars, magnetometer, acoustic cameras, subsea positioning (USBL) and tracking devices, sampling tools, sensors, echo-sounders. – Commercial diving equipment. – Capacities and skills to coordinate operations with maritime works companies. – 2 design offices in Lorient and Marseille. – 2 logistic bases in Lorient and Marseille.

Hyperbaric medicine today

 

Hyperbaric medicine, also known as hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), involves administering oxygen to a patient at a pressure above atmospheric pressure.

 

Treatments of different pathologies

 

This medicine allows the treatment of many urgent or chronic pathologies.
The treated patients are installed in a hyperbaric oxygen therapy chamber and are brought to an air pressure equivalent to 1.5 bar (2.5 ATA).
Each patient will be administered pure oxygen following a protocol predefined by the Hyperbaric doctor.
All the following pathologies can be treated: (Non-exhaustive list)

. Decompression sickness (diving accident)
. Carbon monoxide poisoning
. Sudden deafness
. Gas embolism
. Necrotizing soft tissue infection
. Chronic refractory osteomyelitis
. Extended burns
. Radiation-induced lesions
. Ulcers or ischemic gangrenes
. Etc…

 

Therapeutic effects of hyperbaric medicine

HBO restores sufficient oxygen pressures in ischemic tissue, limits edema, protects against reperfusion aggression and facilitates healing
It increases the bactericidal power of polynuclear, potentiates certain antibiotics and acts directly on bacteria. The increase in pressure also makes it possible to fragment the intravascular gas sleeves in case of arterial gas embolism. This therapy increases the oxygen supply to damaged tissue and speeds up the healing process.

 

New leads for hyperbaric medicine

L’hyperbaric oxygen therapy promises, through scientific studies, a great potential to improve the condition of people suffering from stroke (Cerebral vascular accident) by waking up the brain with oxygen. It is also studied for Alzheimer’s disease and in the test phase in fibromyalgia.

The Hyperbaric Center at Sainte Marguerite Hospital in Marseille

Privileged partner for many years the hyperbaric medicine service of AP-HM and Comex have long been used to working together. This collaboration, reinforced by geographical proximity, makes it possible to form a high-quality medical-technical platform for biomedical research and development in the field of extreme environments.

In 2004, the AP-HM set up a hyperbaric center at the Sainte Marguerite de Marseille hospital. Designed and installed by our company, we also provide maintenance.

The hyperbaric center is currently headed by Dr. Mathieu COULANGE, Head of the Department of Hyperbaric, Underwater and Marine Medicine.

 

The Hyperbaric Center has three rooms multiplaces :

1) A “Chronic” room for chronic outpatient treatment. (8 seats).

2) A room “REA” which is an emergency room of resuscitation (2 elongated places). It also makes it possible to carry out, among other things, vascular explorations in pressure such as transcutaneous pressure and Doppler laser flow..

3) A “HYPO / HYPER” chamber that allows hyperbaric and hypobaric functioning.

– Chronic hyperbaric treatments (2 elongated places or 3 seated places).

– Pathophysiological studies in hypobaria.

The structure also includes consultation rooms that allow medical visits of no contraindication to recreational diving and medical aptitude for interventions in hyperbaric environments for professionals.

To know: The center of hyperbaric medicine of the APHM is currently the only one in France to have a hypobaric chamber which allows, among other things, to carry out studies at flight crews of aeronautics.

More generally, the APHM wants to be a center of excellence in research and teaching in the field of medicine applied to extreme environments. This is true for the maritime domain but also for the aeronautical field.

A constant modernization of the hyperbaric center

 

After the replacement of the computer system by the last generation, the COMEX teams have again intervened to modernize the hyperbaric center in 2017.

Indeed, the teams of our Services Department have installed on the 3 chambers of hyperbaric oxygen therapy, a new adapted lighting system much more efficient and economical (LED technology) which has significantly improved the comfort of patients and staff caregiver.

« Since our partnership with Comex, we have taken the option of modernizing our Hyperbaric and Hypobaric chamber. In 2017 we replaced our less efficient halogen lighting with LEDs, which is much more pleasant with the possibility to switch from a white light to a blue light that has the property to soothe patients and allow them to rest which is very pleasant for them during daily oxygen therapy sessions. It is also a comfort for the nursing staff during the care »

• Modernised by the collaboration of the teams of the Engineering Department and the Services Department of the COMEX, the hyperbaric chamber of the University Hospital of Saint-Pierre, on Reunion Island, received this year a new lighting system, in as part of an operation to replace the vision Windows, which have reached the limit of validity. Developed for our new range of hyperbaric oxygen therapy facilities Cx2, this system has the advantage of significantly reducing the electrical consumption associated with the Chamber lighting and the enclosure’s Airlock, significantly reducing the costs of maintenance of the installation by making the 10-year replacement of the lighting Windows useless and greatly improving the luminous comfort inside the box.

The Sud reunion hospital group is equipped with a hyperbaric chamber since 1982. But it was in 1997, that a real hyperbaric care unit comprising dedicated premises, a hyperbar Chamber and staff was created within the Hospital of Saint Peter. This hyperbaric oxygen therapy unit is integrated into the emergency/SMUR/UHCD service. Initially under the responsibility of Dr Jan Dick HARMS, she is now led by Dr Cyril D’Andrea. The activity is supported with approximately 2600 sessions equivalent to one-seater/year. The service deals with various pathologies such as delayed healing, sudden overhearing and diving accidents… An important nursing activity (dressings) has been developed with more than 700 dressings made per year. The service has also developed a counselling activity on wounds and scarring, treatment of wounds by negative pressure and measurements of trans-cutaneous oxygen pressures. The recruitment of this unit is regional, a 24-hour permanence is ensured for emergencies.
