      Cet article a pour objectif de décrire un processus de recherche engagé sur la formation pratique d’éducateurs sociaux en Belgique francophone dans le cadre d’une association dénommée Form’Educ. Cela se passe dans un groupe de huit Hautes-Ecoles engagées ensemble dans un projet de recherche pendant cinq ans (2011-2015) dans le but d'échanger leurs pratiques de formation concernant la formation ...
    • Relationships between plasma lipids, proteins, surface tension and post-dive bubblesPeer reviewedOpen access 

      13 février 2015, Schellaert, Nicolas; Rolzoznik, Miroslav; Balestra, Costantino, HE Bruxelles Brabant
      Article scientifique
      Decompression sickness (DCS) in divers is caused by bubbles of inert gas. When DCS occurs, most bubbles can be found in the venous circulation: venous gas emboli (VGE). Bubbles are thought to be stabilized by low molecular weight surfactant reducing the plasma-air surface tension (γ). Proteins may play a role as well. We studied the interrelations between these substances, γ and VGE, measured before ...
    • Diving deeper into SCUBA SciencePeer reviewedOpen access 

      12 février 2017, Balestra, Costantino; Germonpré, Peter, HE Bruxelles Brabant
      Livre/Ouvrage ou monographie
      The editors of and authors of this book are a cadre of scientists and physicians with broad experience and knowledge of diving physiology and decompression theory. As is often the case, it requires a group effort to succeed in advancing practical knowledge. The colloquialism "the whole is greater than the sum of its parts" is often true and the PHYPODE Reasearch Group epitomizes this concept. By ...

    • La relecture collaborative comme levier de réécriture et de soutien aux corrections des textesPeer reviewedClosed access 

      décembre 2018, Colognesi, Stéphane; Deschepper, Catherine, HE Léonard de Vinci
      Article scientifique
      La visée de cette contribution est de présenter une analyse des effets de la « relecture collaborative », identifiée comme un temps où les élèves, en sousgroupes, sont amenés à discuter et commenter les productions écrites des élèves d’un autre sous-groupe. Plus précisément, l’étude cherche à montrer ce que font les élèves, tant des conseils qu’ils reçoivent, que de ce dont ils discutent avec leurs ...
    • Do Environmental Conditions Contribute to Narcosis Onset and Symptom Severity?Peer reviewedClosed access 

      14 octobre 2016, Lafère, Pierre; Balestra, Costantino; Hemelryck, Walter; Guerrero, François; Germonpré, Peter, HE Bruxelles Brabant
      Article scientifique
      Although many factors contributing to inert gas narcosis onset and severity have been put forward, the available evidence is not particularly strong. Using objective criteria, we have assessed brain impairment associated with narcosis under various environmental diving conditions. 40 volunteers performed a no-decompression dive (33 m for 20 min) either in a dry chamber, a pool or open sea. They were ...
    • Effects of oxygen-enriched air on cognitive performance during SCUBA-diving - an open-water studyPeer reviewedClosed access 

      12 avril 2017, Brebeck, Anne-Kathrin; Deussen, Andreas; Schmitz-Pfeiffer, Henning; Range, Ursula; Balestra, Costantino; Cleveland, Sinclair; Schipke, Jochen, HE Bruxelles Brabant
      Article scientifique
      Backround: Nitrogen narcosis impairs cognitive function, a fact relevant during SCUBA-diving. Oxygen-enriched air (nitrox) became popular in recreational diving, while evidence of its advantages over air is limited. AIM: Compare effects of nitrox28 and air on two psychometric tests. METHODS: In this prospective, double-blind, open-water study, 108 advanced divers (38 females) were randomized to an ...
    • Evidence of Heritable Determinants of Decompression Sickness in RatsPeer reviewedClosed access 

      22 juillet 2017, Lautridou, Jacky; Buzzacott, Peter; Belhomme, Marc; Dugrenot, Emmanuel; Lafère, Pierre; Balestra, Costantino; Guerrero, François, HE Bruxelles Brabant
      Article scientifique
      NTRODUCTION: Decompression sickness (DCS) is a complex and poorly understood systemic disease caused by inadequate desaturation following a decrease of ambient pressure. Strong variability between individuals is observed for DCS occurrence. This raises questions concerning factors that may be involved in the inter-individual variability of DCS occurrence. This study aimed to experimentally assess ...
    • Dive Risk Factors, Gas Bubble Formation, and Decompression Illness in Recreational SCUBA Diving: Analysis of DAN Europe DSL Data BasePeer reviewedOpen access 

      10 mai 2017, Cialoni, Danilo; Pieri, Massimo; Balestra, Costantino; Marroni, Alessandro, HE Bruxelles Brabant
      Article scientifique
      Introduction: The popularity of SCUBA diving is steadily increasing together with the number of dives and correlated diseases per year. The rules that govern correct decompression procedures are considered well known even if the majority of Decompression Sickness (DCS) cases are considered unexpected confirming a bias in the "mathematical ability" to predict DCS by the current algorithms. Furthermore, ...
    • Preconditioning to Reduce Decompression Stress in Scuba DiversPeer reviewedClosed access 

      18 janvier 2017, Germonpré, Peter; Balestra, Costantino, HE Bruxelles Brabant
      Article scientifique
      BACKGROUND: Using ultrasound imaging, vascular gas emboli (VGE) are observed after asymptomatic scuba dives and are considered a key element in the potential development of decompression sickness (DCS). Diving is also accompanied with vascular dysfunction, as measured by flow-mediated dilation (FMD). Previous studies showed significant intersubject variability to VGE for the same diving exposure and ...
    • Correlation between Patent Foramen Ovale, cerebral “lesions” and neuropsychometric testing in experienced sports divers: does diving damage the brain?Peer reviewedOpen access 

      01 juin 2016, Balestra, Costantino; Germonpré, Peter, HE Bruxelles Brabant
      Article scientifique
      SCUBA diving exposes divers to decompression sickness (DCS). There has been considerable debate whether divers with a Patent Foramen Ovale of the heart have a higher risk of DCS because of the possible right-to-left shunt of venous decompression bubbles into the arterial circulation. Symptomatic neurological DCS has been shown to cause permanent damage to brain and spinal cord tissue; it has been ...
    • Objective vs. Subjective Evaluation of Cognitive Performance During 0.4-MPa Dives Breathing Air or NitroxPeer reviewedClosed access 

      19 avril 2017, Germonpré, Peter; Balestra, Costantino; Hemelryck, Walter; Buzzacott, Peter; Lafère, Pierre, HE Bruxelles Brabant
      Article scientifique
      BACKGROUND: Divers try to limit risks associated with their sport, for instance by breathing enriched air nitrox (EANx) instead of air. This double blinded, randomized trial was designed to see if the use of EANx could effectively improve cognitive performance while diving. METHODS: Eight volunteers performed two no-decompression dry dives breathing air or EANx for 20 min at 0.4 MPa. Cognitive ...

      20 août 2017, Lafère, Pierre; Balestra, Costantino; Caers, Dirk; Germonpré, Peter, HE Bruxelles Brabant
      Article scientifique
      Introduction: There is a need to evaluate the influence of risk factors such as patency of foramen ovale (PFO) or "daredevil" psychological profile on contra-indication policy after a decompression sickness (DCS). Methods: By crossing information obtained from Belgian Hyperbaric Centers, DAN Emergency Hotline, the press, and Internet diving forums, it was possible to be accountable for the majority ...

      Article scientifique
      Objective: The aim of the study was to observe the effects of dark chocolate on endothelial function after scuba diving. Methods: Forty-two male scuba divers were divided into two groups: a control (n=21) and a chocolate group (n=21). They performed a 33-metres deep scuba-air dive for 20 minutes in a diving pool (Nemo 33, Brussels). Water temperature was 33⁰C. The chocolate group ingested 30 g ...
