The team dives into a look at Hyperbaric Medicine today with our special guest Paul Watts, Hyperbaric Safety Director at Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, Nevada. The use of a chamber to increase the atmospheric pressure around a patient can be used for everything from wound care to treatment of dive injuries.
Paul, and our guest Kevin Reiter from the Wilderness Safety Instititute, stressed the importance of contacting DAN (Divers Alert Network) to locate the appropriate hyperbaric treatment chamber for your patient. That phone number for your reference is +1-919-684-9111.
