This course is jointly provided by Haymarket Medical Education (HME) and WebCME.
This course offers physicians, mid-level practitioners, and allied health care professionals a comprehensive review of the major clinical and operational knowledge domains related to the practice of hyperbaric medicine, including oxygen physiology, and the physics and mechanisms-of-action for hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). Lectures include a review of the primary clinical indications for treatment, management of the patient undergoing hyperbaric therapy, and principal operational aspects of the hyperbaric facility. While focused on ensuring success in passing any of the currently offered certification exams, this course is also an excellent educational opportunity for all health care professionals who want to expand their knowledge of HBOT.
This course has been designed to meet the educational needs of physicians, mid-level practitioners, and allied health care professionals involved in treating patients in need of hyperbaric clinical applications. This course is appropriate for physicians, mid-level practitioners, and supporting health care practitioners who seek an in-depth review of major clinical and operational areas related to the practice of hyperbaric medicine.
