The use of high-pressure clinical oxygen called Hyperbaric Oxygen (HBO), has come a long way since 1964 from Europe. The education of its use is rapidly growing in the U.S. for physicians and other medical and non-medical personnel working in hyperbaric facilities around the world. This program will fill the need for selection of physicians and all other HBO personnel working in multi or mono place chambers. It will also educate participants on the safety regulations for entry into the hyperbaric environment medically. All department personnel will know the oxygen safety requirements for patients and personnel. The FDA approved indications, and some of the non-approved indications will be covered.
