One of our chief missions is to raise awareness and help increase 24/7 access to HBOT chambers at emergency rooms for victims of thermal burns, smoke inhalation, and carbon monoxide poisoning. (Review our past coverage here.) So we were especially pleased to discover a new posting of a 2007 talk by Dr Fred Fiesseler of Morristown (NJ) Memorial Hospital. Drawn from case studies and a review of the medical literature, Fiesseler's presentation reaffirms our commitment to this mission. To listen to the audio file follow this link:
Is Hyperbaric Oxygen Still the Standard for Carbon Monoxide Poisoning?
Going forward we will be identifying ER-accessible chambers in our treatment center directory and partnering with emergency medical associations and innovative companies like Healthagen to spread this lifesaving information far and wide.
Of course some political activism may be in order, too, and count on HyperbaricLink to be there.
