About me

  • PhD at KI, ICU consultant and head of hyperbaric unit at Karolinska University Hospital.

    I have a background as a submarine officer. Diving and gas physiology has been major interests, one of the reasons why I ended up as a specialist in Anaesthesia and Intensive care. I am very interested in training and have always been fascinated by how we can adapt to changes in the environment, how our bodies adapt to different challenges and how we can transform our bodies by exercise.

    When I became head of hyperbaric medicine at Karolinska University Hospital, I was fascinated how we can treat different types of inflammatory conditions with hyperbaric oxygen. I was also surprised how little we know about the mechanisms, so I decided to find out more...

    1999 MD (Läkarexamen)

  • Biomarkers for Oxidative Stress and HIF-1 signalling in Hyperbaric Oxygen and Ischemia Reperfusion Injury

    Hyperbaric oxygen has been used for almost 100 years for different inflammatory and infectious conditions. It seems to work but the mechanisms are still an enigma.

    My research aim is to explore biomarkers for dose/effect of hyperbaric oxygen so that we can tailor our treatments with regard to dose and timing.
