Unravelling our Hyperbaric Codes and Standards: The ongoing, real-time development of hyperbaric industry rules is intended to be transparent. Interested parties have access to either pre-published code revisions or standards committees and are welcomed to provide input. In most cases they may attend committee meetings to observe deliberations over suggested updates, revisions, and even new materials. The committees that develop these publications are made up of a balanced number of individuals representing all aspects of our industry: medicine, engineering and technology, operational management, design and manufacture, research, and governmental institutions. Despite all of this, most of our colleagues regard regulatory documents as strict compliance mandates, often formulated either by parties with their own interests, or administrative organizations with little or no knowledge of our field. This presentation will hopefully peel back some of the layers to allay such concerns and ultimately invite more participation by all hyperbaric industry stakeholders.

Hyperbaric Medicine Emergencies: Description: This lecture is to review emergent hyperbaric medicine conditions, and why HBO may benefit these patients. There will be a Quick review of the pathophysiology of HBOT and how it can affect these conditions given many of the UHMS approved indications are for emergent medical and surgical conditions. Many patients with emergency conditions are clinically stable, and treatment for these patients can be easily performed in monoplace and multiplace hyperbaric chambers.
