Winter Symposium on Hyperbaric Medicine and Wound Care

JANUARY 27-30, 2018


TSA ID requirements for boarding airplanes, trains, and cruise lines in the US: As you may be aware, some US states whose IDs do not fit the new standards have been applying for and obtaining waivers/extensions. The following is a helpful link to content explaining additional details about these new ID requirements, including links to the status of each state: https://www.tsa.gov/sites/default/files/resources/realid_factsheet.pdf.  All travelers should be prepared for their IDs to be challenged, even in states with waivers, extensions, or grace periods. Older drivers’ licenses will also be an issue in some states, so we encourage our members to travel with  US government-issued IDs/passports, even when traveling domestically, to ensure that you do not encounter any issues during this time period. 


 

 

  • ABOUT

    For over 50 years the UHMS has been the primary source of information for hyperbaric medicine and physiology worldwide.  This symposium will feature updates in the fields of Hyperbaric Medicine and Wound Care. This course has as its goal to provide a quality CME opportunity to update knowledge and skills for hyperbaric and wound care: physicians, nurses and technicians, and other clinicians and personnel whose practice includes hyperbaric medicine and wound care.  This course will feature speakers prominent in their field and will provide time to question and interact with these experts in the friendly confines of the Snowbird Ski Resort in Snowbird, UT.

    • discuss the mechanisms of acute and late effects of radiotherapy;
    • describe the common clinical findings seen in late radiation tissue injury;
    • list the most commonly involved tissues that manifest radiation injury;
    • discuss the work up needed prior to starting adjunctive hyperbaric oxygen therapy for patients with late radiation tissue injury;
