This course offers a comprehensive update, review and future practice of hyperbaric medicine and wound care. This includes oxygen physiology, and the physics, mechanisms-of-action for hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), and etiology and management of wounds. Lectures include a review of the primary clinical indications for treatment, management of the patient undergoing hyperbaric therapy, and the future of HBOT. While focused on the basics of HBOT and wound care, this course is also an excellent educational opportunity for all health care professionals who want to expand their knowledge of HBOT and wound care.

There will be a continental breakfast, coffee, tea and water will be available all day, and a buffet
lunch and snacks for the afternoon break. Please refer questions to Mike Gendreau,
