sources for literature on the oxidative burst used in the killing of
bacteria, by phagocytes, and macrophages can be found in a book called
Hyperbaric Medicine Practice 2nd edition by Kindwall. Other books include
Textbook of Hyperbaric Medicine, sorry not sure of authors, and Handbook of
Hyperbaric Medicine, KKJain, is the author.
