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.
After completing this educational activity, participants should be able to:
• Understand the physiology and etiology of wound healing and the mechanisms of action of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT).
• Discuss the physics and physiological effects of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy as an adjunct tool in advance wound care.
• Identify different wound types including pressure ulcers, arterial ulcers, venous ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, lymphedema, and surgical ulcers.
• Discuss difficult to heal wounds and the best approach to care delivery.
• Have a better knowledge of the current state of the art of hyperbaric medicine and how it benefits many wound care patients.
• Have a better understanding of the ethical issues surrounding HBOT.
• Discuss the business of wound care as it relates to billing and coding.
• Discuss with their clinical colleagues the appropriate approach to patient care in wound care and hyperbaric medicine.
This course has been designed to meet the educational needs of MD’s, DO’s, Podiatrists, PA’s, NP’s, RN’s, and Hyperbaric technicians and other health care professionals involved in treating patients where hyperbaric medicine is recommended. This includes all health professionals that are involved in wound care.
