CHT Re-certification CEU Package - 2017

Please note: upon purchase, this course bundle will appear in your account under "My Courses", and each individual lesson will be listed separately. 

COURSE OVERVIEW

This package contains NBDHMT approved Category A CEU courses to meet re-certification requirements for CHT and partial CHRN.

As per the NBDHMT CHT Resource Manual updated April 2017: "CHTs are required to earn a minimum of 24 hours of education credits (hours) during each re-certification period.

At least 12 must be Category A, defined as education and training directly related to the practice of undersea, hyperbaric or hypobaric medicine. Of these 12 credits, at least 9 (75%) must relate to ‘core competency’, namely technical, operational and safety aspects of the hyperbaric/hypobaric delivery system. They may be earned through attendance at meetings and conferences that have received prior-approval from the NBDHMT to award such credits."

This package fulfills that portion of the re-certification requirement.

Note: For full details of CHT re-certification requirements please consult the NBDHMT CHT Resource Manual

Fundamental Theories and Primary Practices in Hyperbaric Medicine

Eligible License Types: MD, DO, DPM (FL only), RN, LPN, CNS, ARNP, CNA, CRT, RRT, RCP

This 40-hour credit course consists of 28.75 hours of online learning plus 11.25 hours of classroom-based practicum. The online learning and classroom practicum can each be purchased separately, or together as a full 40-hour program to save 20% on registration fees. 

COURSE OBJECTIVES:

Practitioners will be able to describe guidelines for diagnosing and managing patients in the hyperbaric environment, important pre-treatment concerns prior to initiating hyperbaric oxygen treatment; understand how to manage the critically ill patient in the hyperbaric environment; know when to utilize advanced modalities in patient care, and display understanding of currently available literature/reports on cancer regrowth or recurrence after a course of HBO2; understand of the basic principles of wound care and hyperbaric medicine.

Participants should be able to describe the philosophies of the physics, physiology, pathophysiology and the medical aspects of compressing patients and observers within the hyperbaric environment ensuring safe treatment protocol. The learners will be able to recognize diving accidents and gain knowledge, performance, and competence to safely and efficiently evaluate and medically treat divers, which in turn improves overall patient outcomes and decreases the professional practice gaps identified for this activity.

Practitioners will also be able to demonstrate an understanding of the types of hyperbaric systems available to them, how to operate the systems in an emergent situation, understand expectations and standards relating to the physician participating as a team member and medical leader in the hyperbaric environment; in a team atmosphere the physician will demonstrate the startup, operation and shut down of the hyperbaric system.
