Advances in Wound Management



Get ahead in the field of wound management...

With the increase in Hyperbaric (HBO2) chamber management organizations and hospitals that have identified a professional practice gap due to the lack of experienced/competent clinicians to employ as staff, many physicians, nurses and allied health professionals have limited knowledge regarding HBO2 medicine, including the equipment and processes related to diagnosis and treatment, especially associated with the UHMS Indications. There is also a practice gap with lack of referrals between specialties to support hyperbaric medicine and wound care treatment that is backed by evidence-based research.
