Tarrytown, NY (PRWEB) March 26, 2015
The Life Support Technologies group (LST) has conducted its 30th Introduction to Hyperbaric Medicine course, which is accredited by both the Undersea & Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS) and the National Board of Diving & Hyperbaric Medical Technology (NDBHMT). LST provides the 40-hour course 4 times a year at several of its 10 hospital partner facilities around the NY tri-state region; registration is available on-line at: http://www.lifesupport-USA.com.
Thirty-eight attendees successfully completed the intensive 40-hour Introduction to Hyperbaric Medicine course, February 17 March 3, 2015, at the LST Partner facility, Westchester Medical Center, Valhalla, NY. Course attendees came from the CT-NY-NJ Tri-State area. The well-rounded group of course participants included Physicians, Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, Registered Nurses, Respiratory Therapists, Paramedics, and Emergency Medical Technicians. Core course faculty include: Glenn J. Butler, CEO; Edward Golembe, M.D.; Scott Gorenstein, M.D.;, Donovan T. Rosas, M.D.; David Charash, D.O.; Jay G. Levine, D.P.M.; Mark Chipps, CHT, EMT; Michael Merrow, CHT, EMT, and Training Director Bernie Chowdhury, BA, CHT; all of whom are Hyperbaric Board certified.
The first LST course was developed in partnership with the late Eric P. Kindwall, M.D., author of several prominent books that continue to be used for medical training. Considered by many to be the Father of Hyperbaric Medicine, Dr. Kindwall was the developer and Director of courses presented by LST until 2008; his contributions to LST and to its educational programs are considerable.
Glenn Butler, LSTs founder and CEO, remarked, Were honored to have reached this milestone of having conducted our 30th accredited hyperbaric medicine course. Our current program has been constantly upgraded over the years to reflect the latest practices, research and knowledge in the fields of hyperbaric medicine and wound care. I think Dr. Kindwall would be proud of how weve built on his educational foundation.
LSTs remaining three hyperbaric courses in 2015 are scheduled as follows: Saint Francis Hospital & Medical Center, Hartford, CT, April 24-28; Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center, Suffern, NY, June 5-9; Nassau University Medical Center, East Meadow, NY, Oct 16-20.
Hyperbaric Medical treatment involves putting a patient in a specially designed pressure vessel known as a hyperbaric chamber that can be pressurized greater than atmospheric pressure. The patient breathes 100% oxygen while under increased pressure. Monoplace hyperbaric chambers are the most common and are designed to treat one patient at a time. Multiplace chambers are purpose-built and can accommodate as many patients as they are built for. Hyperbaric chamber construction standards are established and published by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Pressure Vessel for Human Occupancy (PVHO) Committee. Standards for in-hospital use of high-pressure oxygen and other gases, and for all aspects of safety regarding in-hospital use of hyperbaric chambers are covered by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) in their manual titled NPFA-99: Health Care Facilities Code.
Currently, in the United States, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) approve hyperbaric treatment for fifteen (15) medical indications. Most commercial insurance carriers follow CMS guidelines for hyperbaric treatment reimbursement. Conditions covered by CMS include: acute carbon monoxide intoxication; decompression illness; gas embolism; gas gangrene; acute traumatic peripheral ischemia; crush injuries and suturing of severed limbs; progressive necrotizing infections (necrotizing fasciitis); acute peripheral arterial insufficiency; preparation and preservation of compromised skin grafts (not for primary management of wounds); chronic refractory osteomyelitis, unresponsive to conventional medical and surgical management; osteoradionecrosis as an adjunct to conventional treatment; soft tissue radionecrosis as an adjunct to conventional treatment; cyanide poisoning; actinomycosis, only as an adjunct to conventional therapy when the disease process is refractory to antibiotics and surgical treatment; diabetic wounds of the lower extremities in patients who meet certain criteria.
The LST course meets the new CMS-mandated educational guidelines for hyperbaric education; it provides the foundation for Physicians, Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, Nurses, Respiratory Therapists, Paramedics, Emergency Medical Technicians, Hyperbaric Technicians, and other clinical professional who are either working in, or planning to enter, the field of Hyperbaric Medicine. The course is a pathway toward achieving professional certification in this growing field.
The Undersea & Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS) is the primary source of scientific information for diving and hyperbaric medicine physiology worldwide and functions as the governing body for the industry. Organizations that present UHMS approved courses are rigorously screened and must adhere to strict guidelines and standards.
Physicians (MD and DO) who attend and participate in the entire course are awarded 40 Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits, which are granted by the UHMS. Allied health professionals (including those who are DPM, PhD, NP, PA, EMT, Paramedic, RN, LPN, RT, RRT) who attend and participate in the entire course are awarded 40 Continuing Education Units (CEU), which are granted by the NBDHMT.

Tomball, TX (PRWEB) March 19, 2015
His Grace Foundation in Tomball, TX has been assisting patients in the bone Marrow Transplant Unit since 1997. In 2014, Canaan Arnold received two bone marrow transplants and continues to undergo treatment for various complications. Premier Insurance Advisors are looking to raise funds to help His Grace Foundation provide for families in need and for Canaan.
Canaan Arnold was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called Chronic Granulomatous Disease, or CGD at 4 years old. CGD causes the patient to be unable to fight off any kind of bacterial or fungal infection and the only cure was for him to undergo a Bone Marrow Transplant. Even though both surgeries have been successful, Canaan still receives treatment for various complications. The Arnolds call him their Little Hero because he always has a positive attitude and is a fighter. The Arnolds continue to express their thankfulness for His Grace Foundations presence in their lives. Premier Insurance Advisors is looking to raise funds to support families like the Arnolds during hard times. Donations can be made through https://www.hisgracefoundation.org/Donate.aspx.
Designed to be grace in the need of the moment, HGF has steadily grown, increasing in services, volunteers and impact. HGF provides each new patient with a gift basket designed specifically for him or her, as well as necessities for family members, free parking for patient families, several monthly catered meals and weekly shopping. Additional services include massage therapy, emergency funding, holiday and birthday celebrations and arts in medicine program. In the last several years, the foundation has expanded to provide three homes for outpatient temporary housing while families are required to maintain close proximity to the hospital.
The agency will donate $ 10 to the cause for each person recommended to the agency for a quote no purchase necessary. Anyone willing to help this campaign can recommend someone they know might need a new insurance evaluation for their auto, home, life, and more.
With agencies in Texas, Premier Insurance Advisors is employing its social media channels, email and text message communications in the campaign, and dedicating a full page of their monthly magazine to the cause.
