RN, LPN, CNA, CHT - Category A, CRT, RRT, RCP, CHRN - Category A
Online

COURSE OVERVIEW

The goals of this online course are to educate the audience as to the physics & physiology effect of hyperbaric exposure and to explain the mechanism and types of injury associated with hyperbaric and diving operations. A description of the signs & symptoms and treatments of both Type I & II DCS is also included as well as defining the treatment tables for DCS & AGE.

Credit Hours: 1.5

License Types: RN, LPN, CNS, ARNP, CNA, CRT, RRT, RCP, CHT - Category A, CHRN - Category A

The Board (NBDHMT) 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”.
