While I was in Sth Africa recently the topic of Bram Stoker's Dracula came up , I mentioned his brother George was in the AZW , no -one realised this , so I thought it'd be interesting to post what I found on George Stoker here on the Forum .

George Stoker's observations regarding the healing and recovery techniques used by wounded Zulus have  had long term and far reaching effects even to the point where today  I employ modern methods of treatment for  certain conditions  which have their origins in Mr Stoker's pioneering work. He combined the use of oxygen with ozone to treat skin conditions such as wounds infections and chronic ulcers. The oxygen enriches the area being treated and the ozone disinfects to the extent that the treated area is allowed to heal more rapidly. His observations also included the fact that the Zulus would continually clean the wounds so as to reduce the effect of microorganisms. By exposure to the sun on an elevated area did not necessarily increase the available oxygen available though it did allow the heat from the sunlight to have a beneficial effect.  His techniques were extensively employed through the course of WW1.

Today advances have the reached the point where we use hyperbaric or very concentrated oxyen treatments to beef up the immune system. Ozone is heavily used too to clean up infections. Cancer treatments which might involve head and neck surgery are often treated using hyperbaric chambers.
