    The Practitioner's Role in Hyperbaric Medicine: Patient Management & Documentation Requirements

    Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO) involves the use of 100% oxygen in a treatment chamber at a pressure greater than atmospheric pressure for various therapeutic purposes. HBO is a prescribed treatment by an appropriate practitioner and is a covered service for a defined number of diagnoses/indications by most insurance payers. A practitioner is required to document the rationale for the delivery of the treatment, a detailed history and physical, patient goals described in the plan of care with appropriate utilization review follow up and risks associated with delivering the treatment. The goals of this intense two-hour course are to detail the role of the physician in managing patients under consideration for HBO, the assessment and screening criteria, standards, and risks.
