Event Overview
Welcome message:
The Hyperbaric Medicine 2015 symposium will focus on recent hyperbaric oxygen (HBO2) therapy advancements to foster collaborative research and innovation. Specific topics will include, but are not limited to, HBO2 therapy in lower limb crush injury, compromised flaps, and deep tissue infections, osteomyelitis and infected prosthetic materials. ICU equipment support (ventilators, monitors and IV pumps) and the integration of hyperbaric safety checklists and procedures in electronic medical record systems will also be covered.

Upon conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:

  • Recognize and apply new standards of practice and develop implementation strategies for transitioning from "actual" to "ideal" practice models
  • Identify the known acute and subacute effects of HBO2 and how to apply them to hyperbaric treatment recommendations for hospitalized patients
  • Describe mechanisms of graft compromise (surgical or traumatic edema, anastomotic failure, re-perfusion injury, irradiated recipient bed, infection, immunosuppression and the like) and how HBO2 can mitigate loss of tissue
  • Discuss challenging compromised grafts, issues related to their management and individual case outcomes
  • Recognize the spectrum of serious deep soft tissue infections and the appropriate application of HBO2 management
  • Discuss the evidence for HBO2 in suppressing or eradicating infections of implanted prosthetic materials
  • Review the ongoing Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society effort in applying grade scoring to the published literature for using HBO2 in the treatment of deep diabetic foot infections and its value for assessing the evidence for its use in other indications
  • Describe challenging infection related cases, issues related to their management and individual case outcomes
  • Recall hyperbaric oxygen delivery options and patient care applications
  • Recognize how to assess and mitigate patient risk as it pertains to management in the hyperbaric chamber
  • Develop operational effectiveness tools, team-based strategies and implementation
  • Summarize and apply safety prevention and certification procedures
  • Describe the Hyperbaric Oxygen in Lower Limb Trauma (HOLLT) study results
  • Discuss and understand team-based strategies for introducing the methodologies of advanced hyperbaric oxygen treatment and support of the traumatized patient.
