Certified Hyperbaric Technologist (CHT)

This course has been reviewed and approved by The National Board of Diving & Hyperbaric Medical Technology (NBDHMT) meeting the requirements as an introductory course in hyperbaric medicine.

Additionally this course has been reviewed and approved by the American College of Hyperbaric Medicine for 40 Category “A” CEU’s

The 40-hour course is suitable for Physicians and other medical personnel and is comprised of interactive sessions covering the following topics:

  • The history of undersea and hyperbaric medicine
  • High and low pressure physics
  • Diving physiology
  • Decompression illness
  • Clinical examination
  • Approved therapeutic uses of hyperbaric oxygen
  • Experimental uses of hyperbaric oxygen
  • Transcutaneous oximetry (TCOM)
  • Hyperbaric chamber safety

The course prepares students to attend patients undergoing hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Included are practical sessions related to:

  • Taking patient history
  • Conducting physical/neurological examinations
  • Administering first aid and medication at the surface and in the hyperbaric chamber environment

Special consideration is given to issues relevant to:

  • The toxic effects of oxygen
  • Fire hazards
  • General chamber safety

Students receive the added benefit of hands-on contact with patients and acquire skills related to the accurate systematic documentation of clinically related events.

Candidates who have medical clearance are afforded an opportunity to experience actual hyperbaric exposures in BOTH monoplace and multiplace HBOT systems.

Hands-on chamber operational experience is available after normal class hours.

      Certified Hyperbaric Registered Nurse

      The Certified Hyperbaric Registered Nurse (CHRN) program is a subspecialty for registered nurses. Hyperbaric nursing challenges nurses “to provide safe, cost-effective, quality patient care, according to established standards.”

      Hyperbaric nurses are sometimes referred to as baromedical nurses and many CHRNs are also members of the Baromedical Nurses Association.

      Certification is granted after a candidate meets the prerequisites and passes the written exams offered each year at the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society annual scientific meeting as well as their regional meetings.

      Maintaining certification requires completion of Continuing Education Credits from NBDHMT approved sources like the UHMS or Divers Alert Network.
