COURSE OVERVIEW

The goals of this intense 2-hour course are to educate as to the physics & physiological effect of hyperbaric exposure and to explain the mechanisms and types of injury associated with hyperbaric and diving operations.

Topics covered in this course include decompression sickness (DCS), bubble formation, saturation and desaturation of tissues, "wet" and "dry" diving (multiplace) in calculating gas uptake and elimination using dive tables, US Navy dive tables and NOAA dive tables, clinical hyperbaric medicine tender rules, and much more.

The Board now requires the following statement to accompany all subsequent references to NBDHMT approved CEU, one that serves as a reminder of CHT core competency:

“CHT re-certification requires a minimum of nine of the minimum 12 Category A credits relate directly to any combination of hyperbaric operations, related technical aspects and chamber safety”.
