Practitioners will be able to describe guidelines for diagnosing and managing patients in the hyperbaric environment, important pre-treatment concerns prior to initiating hyperbaric oxygen treatment; understand how to manage the critically ill patient in the hyperbaric environment; know when to utilize advanced modalities in patient care, and display understanding of currently available literature/reports on cancer regrowth or recurrence after a course of HBO2; understand of the basic principles of wound care and hyperbaric medicine.

Participants should be able to describe the philosophies of the physics, physiology, pathophysiology and the medical aspects of compressing patients and observers within the hyperbaric environment ensuring safe treatment protocol. The learners will be able to recognize diving accidents and gain knowledge, performance, and competence to safely and efficiently evaluate and medically treat divers, which in turn improves overall patient outcomes and decreases the professional practice gaps identified for this activity.

Practitioners will also be able to demonstrate an understanding of the types of hyperbaric systems available to them, how to operate the systems in an emergent situation, understand expectations and standards relating to the physician participating as a team member and medical leader in the hyperbaric environment; in a team atmosphere the physician will demonstrate the startup, operation and shut down of the hyperbaric system.
