UHMS Guidelines for Hyperbaric Facility Operations 2nd Edition

Updates in the UHMS Guidelines
This edition of the UHMS Guidelines for Hyperbaric Facility Operations is not intended to be inclusive, to rewrite authoritative texts, or to usurp accepted organizations or certifying bodies. However, it often references these standards, when appropriate. It is not the intent of this guide to replace or override any state or local institutional procedure or standard.
Rather, it is a collection of recommendations gathered from a group of experts in the field. It is our sincere hope that this guide will serve practitioners as a ready reference to ensure competency, quality of care, and safety in the practice of hyperbaric medicine. Users of this guide are invited to visit the UHMS website at www.uhms.org for more information and to email comments or questions to This email address is being protected from spambots.

This 2015 edition incorporates information from two major Society Position Statements: 
  1. Clinician Attendance of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (March 2009) 
  2. UHMS Credentialing and Privileging Guidelines for Hyperbaric Medicine Physicians in the U.S.A. (June 2014). 
Unlike previous editions, the current publication has benefitted from extensive input by the Associates of the UHMS on matters related to nursing and technical personnel.

UHMS Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Indications, Thirteenth Edition

The UHMS is the primary source of scientific information for diving and hyperbaric medicine physiology worldwide, the breadth of which is illustrated in the triennial report, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Indications. With leading experts authoring chapters in their respective fields, this publication continues to provide the most current and up to date guidance and support for scientists and practitioners of hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
