Training With Hyperbarics International:

Diving and Clinical certification programs for Physicians, Dive Medics, and Clinical HBO Technicians.


Hyperbarics International’s new facility is one of the most complete hyperbaric teaching facilities worldwide for diving and clinical hyperbaric medicine. Dick Rutkowski – president and owner – was the original co-director of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS) three-week (now two-week) diving and clinical physician course for undersea medicine from 1975 through 2008.  Mr. Rutkowski was the co-director of the NOAA Diver Medical Treatment and Training Center from 1975 through 1985, but remained with the NOAA and UHMS physician training course until 2008 – a total of 33 years. Upon retiring from NOAA in 1985, Mr. Rutkowski founded Hyperbarics International to continue teaching diving and clinical hyperbaric medicine to physicians, dive medical technicians (DMTs), clinical hyperbaric technicians (CHTs), and other diving and clinical hyperbaric oxygen personnel who have an interest in the diving and clinical applications of multi and mono place treatment chambers.

Dick Rutkowski, program and facility director, has had Dr. James Lowenherz, M.D. as the medical director for Hyperbarics International for 35 years. Doctor Lowenherz is also the medical director of three other hyperbaric facilities in South Florida hospitals; as well as being a worldwide speaker on the subjects of nephrology and the diving and clinical applications of hyperbaric medicine. Under his direction, Hyperbarics International’s training and certification programs are approved by the AMA, UHMS, and International Board of Undersea Medicine (IBUM) for 40 AMA Cat 1 CMEs/CEUs for physicians, DMTs, and CHTs. Other allied medical personnel and chamber operators can gain advanced information on the uses of HBO through Hyperbarics International’s training programs. Our programs are also strongly recommended for diving instructors and dive rescue personnel who would like to receive information and/or training in the uses of hyperbaric oxygen as it applies to diving to further their undersea careers.
