UHMS Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Indications
The Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS) is an international, non-profit organization serving over 2,400 members from more than 50 countries. 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.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Indications, currently in its thirteenth edition, has grown in size and depth to reflect the evolution of the literature on the approved use of hyperbarics from both a clinical practice standpoint and insurance coverage perspective. To date, the committee recognizes fourteen indications, including the new indication, idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss.
Additionally, this book continues to be used by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and other third party insurance carriers in determining payment for HBO2 services.
UHMS Guidelines for Hyperbaric Facility Operations 2nd Edition
The UHMS Operations Committee Report, originally published in January 2000, was the Society’s first attempt to provide written guidance related to training, responsibility, staffing, safety, and quality assurance for hyperbaric medicine facilities. It was revised in 2007 and published as the UHMS Guidelines for Hyperbaric Facility Operations. The main focus of the new material in the 2007 publication was to provide information on the UHMS Clinical Hyperbaric Facility Accreditation Program.
Preventative Legal Care: A Practitioner's Guide to Medico-Legal Fitness
Do you know the significant legal risks that you face every day as a medical practitioner? Have you ever considered how you may be able to minimize those medical-legal risks?
This easy to read book provides practical, real-world solutions to effectively manage and diminish your medical-legal risks. As a practicing healthcare attorney, Kevin W. Yankowsky has represented individual clinicians and healthcare institutions involved in legal disputes of all shapes and sizes. In his over 20 years as a practicing attorney, he has seen providers and institutions pour money into resolving legal disputes that potentially could have been avoided. Institutions focus too much of their time, effort, and financial resources on the costs of litigation defense and the expenses of settlement rather than investing time and resources on medical-legal prevention. In Preventative Legal Care: A Practitioner’s Guide to Medical-Legal Fitness, Yankowsky outlines some medical-legal risk factors unassociated with clinical care and supplies practical real-world solutions to recognize, control and minimize, if not eliminate, those factors.
Handbook of Acrylics for Hyperbarics, Submersibles, and Aquaria
This book summarizes the theories, test data, and work experience accumulated over the years in the design, fabrication and operation of acrylic plastic viewports in submersibles, hyperbaric chambers, and aquaria. This fully illustrated, 1,080 page handbook solves current practical engineering problems in the design of the pressure resistant acrylic plastic viewports in the entire pressure range from full vacuum to 20,000 psi (138 Mpa).
This fully documented design handbook is ideally suited for engineers, designers, operators, and inspectors of pressure vessels who need to know and understand the technology of viewport and hyperbaric chamber development. In addition, the safety factors recommended for the design, to preclude catastrophic failure, are covered in a separate section of the ANSI/ASME PVHO-1 Safety Standard.
Hyperbaric Facility Safety
This title is a necessity for the preparedness of every wound care and hyperbaric facility. Recent tragic accidents in the national and international hyperbaric medicine community have focused attention on the need for more comprehensive information on this topic. This book will help to reduce liability in the workplace, and will become an integral part of your on-site reference library.
Hyperbaric facility safety is a complex issue that covers an extremely broad range of topics, including safe engineering design practices, regulatory guidance, training, staffing, maintenance, and operational procedures, among others. This book was written to create a comprehensive document to assist established hyperbaric programs, serve as a safety primer for those developing programs throughout the world, and help cultivate the mindset vital to maintaining a safe environment for staff and patients.
On the recommended reading list for facility certification, the information contained in this book applies to operational and clinical wound care and hyperbaric facilities.
Hyperbaric Medicine Practice, 3rd Edition

About the Editors
Eric P. Kindwall, M.D., a past president of the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS), Dr. Kindwall founded Pressure, the UHMS newsletter, and was founding chairman of the UHMS Committee on Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. He was former chairman of the Commission on Underwater Physiology and Medicine for the International Union of Physiological Sciences. He retired as a commander from the U.S. Navy Reserve in 1995. Over 90 publications and book chapters in the fields of diving, clinical hyperbaric medicine, and compressed air construction work are attributed to him. In addition, he has consulted internationally for commercial diving companies, tunnel construction companies, foreign navies, and hospitals acquiring clinical hyperbaric facilities.
Harry T. Whelan, M.D., conducted his research with funding and collaboration from NASA Marshall Space Flight Center. Using space based light-emitting diode (LED) technologies developed for growing plants on the Space Shuttle, he now has over fifteen years experience conducting studies on the use of near-infrared light for photodynamic therapy of cancer and, in combination with hyperbaric oxygen, for stimulation of human tissue growth and wound healing, during space flight and for patients here on earth. More recently, he has done extensive research on Combat Casualty Care for DARPA as a principle investigator and is currently conducting research on the use of hyperbaric medicine for stroke patients.

PFO and the Diver
The focus in this new title is on PFO (Patent Foramen Ovale) as a risk factor in diving and thus the text is concerned primarily with dissolved gas and the subsequent aberrant distribution of those venous bubbles in the presence of a natural and common anatomical variant of cardiac development.
The prevalence of PFO is about 25% in the general population and several respectable investigators have studied this problem and feel that PFO should be considered a definite risk factor for the development of decompression sickness.
