Aurora St. Luke's Undersea & Hyperbaric Medicine Fellows Class of 2024. Medical School: Ponce Health Sciences University Residency: University of Puerto Rico
Richard Moon earned BSc and MD degrees at McGill University in Montreal, Canada, then trained in internal medicine and biomedical engineering at the University of Toronto. In 1979, he went to Duke to train in pulmonary and critical care medicine. After pulmonary/critical care fellowship he completed training in anesthesiology and in 1983 joined the Duke University faculty. He is Professor of Anesthesiology, Professor of Medicine and Medical Director of the Duke Center for Hyperbaric Medicine & Environmental Physiology. His research has included the physiology of immersion and predictors of arterial PCO2 during underwater exercise. His work has included the role of patent foramen ovale (PFO) in decompression sickness (DCS). He has been particularly interested in causes and prevention of immersion pulmonary edema, a condition that continues to occur in Navy Special Forces trainees. He has been supported by several Navy grants, recently including use of an experimental breathing gas (perfluoromethane) to decrease decompression requirements after heliox dive. After completing human experiments demonstrating upregulation of mitochondrial biogenesis with low dose carbon monoxide exposure, he is currently studying its effect on training of the respiratory muscles. His work has also included mechanisms of sudden death during triathlons and causes of perioperative opioid-induced respiratory depression, and improved monitoring techniques for monitoring patients to detect it.
