Introduction to Hyperbaric Medicine

 
Credit Hours: 40
Licenses eligible for CME/CEUs: MD, DO, DPM (Florida only), RN, LPN, CNS, ARNP, CNA, CRT, RRT, RCP, CHT, CHRN
 

This course will provide you with basic training or continuing education in hyperbaric medicine.

This course meets the CMS requirements for physician supervision and billing; and is a precursor to getting the UHMS PATH or ABWH certificate of added qualification.

Please note that the American Board of Wound Healing (ABWH) offers added qualifications similar to those offered by the NBDHT. The ABWH offers Certified Hyperbaric Specialist (CHS) and Certified Hyperbaric & Wound Specialist (CHWS) 

The UHMS recognizes both CHT/CHRN and CHS/CHWS - you can find the UHMS position statement here.

The live in-person version of our hyperbaric training course does apply to those pursuing CHT or CHRN as it is approved by NBDHMT; and for those pursuing CHS or CHWS, as it is a UHMS approved training course. 

The livestream webinar version of this course does not apply to CHT/CHRN or those pursuing CHT/CHRN through NBDHMT. 

This intense four-day, 40-hour live course is approved by the UHMS & NBDHMT as an Introduction to Hyperbaric Medicine and intended for a wide audience of health care providers involved in advanced wound care management, including the physician, registered nurse, nurse practitioner, clinical nurse specialist, registered respiratory therapist, physical therapist, physician's assistant, EMT's and paramedics.


  • GOALS and OBJECTIVES

    The goals and objectives of this jointly provided Introductory Course in Hyperbaric Medicine CME Program are:

    • Provide a rigorous Introductory Course in Hyperbaric Medicine addressing the key fundamental elements and concepts which will assist the participant in practicing hyperbaric medicine, safely and effectively.

    • Demonstrate the importance of team training in the hyperbaric environment including safely operating the hyperbaric equipment and performing emergency drills.

    • Provide the participant with the opportunity to perform non-invasive vascular studies and understand the important role of PtcO2 in determining the opportunity for wound healing.

    At the conclusion of the Introductory Courses in Hyperbaric Medicine the participants should be able to:

    • Demonstrate an understanding of the key elements associated with hyperbaric pressure and treatment through homework, practical application discussions, Q/A's and a final examination at end of the end of the course.

    • Demonstrate knowledge in applying PtcO2 electrodes in the correct tissue areas to determine tissue PO2 and verbalize the results based on the Transcutaneous Oximetry in Clinical Practice: Consensus statements from an expert panel based on evidence.

    Are There Pre-requisites for Taking the Course? (Video)

    We often get the question, "Are there pre-requisites for taking the CHT course?"

    The "CHT course" as students often refer to it is actually called, Introduction to Hyperbaric Medicine. It is the 40-hour basic training course in hyperbaric medicine and it is required if you are seeking an added qualification of CHT (Certified Hyperbaric Technologist through the NBDHMT) or CHS (Certified Hyperbaric Specialist through ABWH); or if you are a physician who will be supervising and billing for hyperbaric oxygen therapy and are seeking privileges in your hospital.

    We hold the basic training course each month across the U.S. throughout the year.
