Frequently Asked Question

Does a safety director course designate someone as a Hyperbaric Safety Director?

We are often asked the question, "Does participation in a safety director course automatically designate me as a hyperbaric safety director?" There seems to be some midunderstanding around this issue.

What a lot of people fail to recognize is that only the employer (meaning, the hyperbaric facility) can designate an individual as the hyperbaric safety director.

So in short, the answer to the question, "does a safety director course automatically designate me as a hyperbaric safety director?" is no. Watch this short video to find out why.

GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

  1. To provide a comprehensive, easily accessible, high quality lecture set addressing the knowledge and practice Intro-HBOT 12gaps of practitioners treating patients with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy with particular focus on identifying potential hyperbaric candidates in an office setting. This program will address the key fundamental elements and concepts which will assist the participant in practicing hyperbaric medicine safely and effectively on any conditions not needing to be treated as in-patient.
  2. Provide a brief history of hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
  3. To fill gaps in knowledge on the physics of HBO and its effects at the cellular level: cardiac function, pulmonary function immune system (gene expression, mitochondria, stem cell release), collagen; effects on inflammation and infection; the nature of free radicals and how they relate to HBO both positive and negative.
  4. To provide knowledge of the changes at the cellular level with the use of HBOT.
  5. To address knowledge gaps in the science and practice of wound care as it relates to HBOT, including: contraindications and approved indications for the use of HBOT, such as diabetic foot ulcers, limb salvage compromised/failed flaps and grafts, radiation injury both ORN and soft tissue, arterial insufficiency and others.
  6. To discuss emerging research information on conditions currently under investigation for the use of HBOT and potential impacts on the future of the practice, such as HBO and CRPS/RSD, traumatic brain injury, stroke, neurological indications and others.

DESIRED RESULTS

At the conclusion of this CME program on Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Indications, the participants should be able to:

  • Describe major historical events in hyperbaric medicine; explain the evolution of the UHMS; Review & discuss UHMS guidelines for HBO; identify other standards and guidelines related to the hyperbaric medicine.
  • The participant should demonstrate a clear understanding of the key elements associated with hyperbaric pressure and treatment, through practical application discussions, Q/A’s and testing.
  • Demonstrate greater knowledge, competence and improved clinical performance in treating patients with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy with particular focus on identifying potential hyperbaric candidates in an office setting.
  • The participant should have increased knowledge of the physics of HBO and its effects at the cellular level: cardiac function, pulmonary function immune system (gene expression, mitochondria, stem cell release), collagen; effects on inflammation and infection; the nature of free radicals and how they relate to HBO both positive and negative.
  • The participant should have increased knowledge of the changes at the cellular level with the use of HBOT.
  • Have a clear understanding of the latest research on conditions currently under investigation and the potential impact on the practice of hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
  • Demonstrate greater knowledge, competence and improved clinical performance in treating wound care patients with HBOT, including: diabetic foot ulcers, cases of limb salvage, patients with compromised/failed flaps and grafts, radiation injury, and cases of arterial insufficiency.
