    Hello all,

    I wanted to provide an update on some of the Swimming Induced / Immersion Pulmonary Oedema (SIPE / IPE) research being conducted at the Duke Center for Hyperbaric Medicine and Environmental Physiology.

    Dr. Moon is moving into the next step of his research with the goal of developing a treatment and possibly even prophylaxis for SIPE / IPE. He is looking for study subjects ages 18-45 who have had at least one incident in the past and have no underlying cardiac disease. I'm linking an article below with his contact information.

    Please don't hesitate to reach out via PM if you have any questions. I'll be posting this thread in multiple forums on SB and social media.

    Best regards,
    wetb4igetinthewater and Jay like this.
