Introduction / CE Requirements
Hyperbaric Treatment for Femoral Aseptic Bone Necrosis: Enrico Camporesi, MD
Avascular necrosis of the femoral head (AVNFH) is a debilitating and progressively disabling condition with partially understood, wide-ranging etiology and pathogenesis. Pathology is chiefly caused by a reduced vascularization of a terminal vascular bed, such as the one perfusing the femoral head, or similar vascular districts, such as the femoral condyles, humeral head, and other bony structures. Hypoxic conditions mediate the condition and can improve with multiple hyperbaric oxygen (HBO2) treatments.
Updates on Long Covid: Sandra Wainwright, MD
Sandra will be talking about long covid and she will be reviewing the literature on hyperbaric oxygen and its use in long covid patients.
How to use what is available…allocating resources and adjust logistics (tables, staff) for mass casualty incidents with recent examples from natural disasters: Kristi Ray, DO
Let’s Call it what it is: Eye Stroke: Brian MacGrory, MB BCh, MRCP (UK)
Panel discussion on finding ways to arm peer to peer: Moderator: Zack Gaskill, DO; Bruce Derrick, MD; Kevin Hardy, MD; Phi-Nga Jeannie Le, MD Panel members TBA
Our panel members will be sharing experiences about the most common peer to peer denials; what information may be worth including in a proper consult to get ahead of the insurance companies inevitable push back; strategies for extensions if appropriate; what clinical information they find most impactful in proving response to therapy and favorite papers for peer to peer conversations to highlight evidence.
