Filippenko Andrey Viktorovich-Doctor-Scientist-Developer of technology and devices “Liquid Breathing”.

Candidate of medical Sciences, specialist in liquid respiration, lung pathophysiology, restorative medicine, pharmacological testing and medical device development.

He has published more than 20 scientific and technical reports and about 30 scientific articles in the Russian and foreign press. He has spoken at numerous conferences on liquid breathing and submarine rescue, including in Russia, Germany, Belgium, Sweden, the UK and Spain. Has author’s certificates on the method of ultrasonic location of decompression gas bubbles, etc.

1976-1979. combining with his studies he worked as an acting engineer in the Department of ultrasonic diagnostic technology in JSC “all-Russian research Institute of high frequency currents”. V. p. Vologdina, led the project of development and testing of the Doppler device “Rhythm”, which became the first serial ultrasonic Doppler device for the diagnosis of the heart and blood vessels in Russia. In 1974 was proposed leadership General Electric to participate program mutual exchange between the USSR and the US high-tech medical devices.

In 1977 he graduated from the 1st Leningrad medical Institute. academician I. p. Pavlov (1 LMI) with a degree in “physician”. At the same time, he developed a technology for the study of the heart and lungs, which allows to monitor the gas content in the bloodstream with high accuracy. Today it is used in heart surgery and diving medicine.

In 1979 he graduated from the clinical residency of the 1st LMI, specialty “Functional diagnostics and clinical pathophysiology”.He proved insufficient reliability of the methods used to diagnose pulmonary hypertension. He developed a new ultrasound technique for people with pulmonary hypertension.

From 1979-1985 he Studied the propagation of gases in the human body under high pressure as a senior researcher at the 40th Research Institute of rescue, diving and deep-sea works of the Ministry of defense of the USSR. (now Research Institute (rescue and underwater technologies) VUNTS Navy ” Naval Academy).

In 1983, he created the technology, designed and manufactured a device for determining gas bubbles in the bloodstream during decompression of divers at a depth of 300 m, which is currently used.

In 1984 he defended his thesis “Comparative characteristics of indirect quantitative methods for determining pulmonary hypertension in patients with lung and heart diseases” before the scientific Council of the 1st Leningrad medical Institute. academician I. p. Pavlov

1986 – 1990 Head of Department, Institute of pulmonology, Ministry of health of the USSR. Director of the laboratory and Department of pathophysiology of the all-Union research Institute of Pulmonology (now Pspbsmu).

In 1986, by Resolution of the Central Committee of the CPSU and the Presidium of the Council of Ministers, MIC and SCNT USSR appointed head of the R & d project “drying Oil MOH”, with the participation of the Institute of pulmonology MOH USSR, the Russian research Institute of Emergency rescue, diving and deep-sea work, the institutes of the Ministry of environment, Ministry of health and Ministry of defense Of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR, in order to test the possibility of self-rescue submariners by free surfacing breathing gas-carrying perfluorocarbon liquids.

From 1986 to 1989 animal experiments were carried out and the following results were obtained:

Dogs within 2 hours independently breathed inert gas-transferring liquids without serious consequences for their health and had healthy posterity.
Under rise with depth 700 flushed on regime free surfacing submariners (3 flushed/with) in the process 30 fringes minute imitation on dogs successfully tested experienced pattern portable apparatus liquid breathing.
In 2005, he developed the concept of rescue from a sunken submarine by switching to liquid ventilation and immediate free ascent.

In 2006, together with the European Space Agency and MGTU. Baumana developed the concept of using liquid respiration to electromagnetically launch humans into space.

In 2007 he was awarded by the society of shipbuilders of great Britain for his scientific work “the Concept of rescue from a sunken submarine: the transition to liquid ventilation and immediate free ascent”.

In 2015, he initiated a project to develop a technology to rescue submariners by free ascent using the method of liquid breathing in the Fund for Advanced Research of the Russian Federation.

In 2015, with the assistance of the research part of the Marine technical University of St. Petersburg, he conducted sea trials in Sevastopol.
