BruceDerrick_2015UHM Section Grant Awarded!!!
Congratulations, and huge thanks to our Chair-Elect, Davut Savaser, MD, MPH for submitting a successful section grant application. The award of $8905.00 will be used to produce video and other multimedia content aimed at being a resource for emergency providers to increase knowledge and understanding of Undersea & Hyperbaric Medicine. This will also increase exposure of our section within ACEP, generate interest from potential fellowship candidates, and further our goal of updating and expanding the section website. Please contact Davut to get involved in this project. We will be working on arranging a meeting time at ACEP in Las Vegas to plan and potentially start developing content. Stay tuned for emails from the section listserv with an update. We look forward to working with everyone, and thanks again to Davut for all of his hard work with this project!

24/7 Hyperbaric Facility Closures

As a follow up on the topic heavily discussed at our last meeting, I am pleased to report initial discussions between ACEP, DAN and the UHMS have begun to combat the issue of dwindling 24/7 hyperbaric chamber availability. A huge thanks should be given to Enoch Huang (UHMS president) and Jim Chimiak (Divers Alert Network) for taking an active role in the discussion. Dr. Chimiak in particular gave a great plenary session on the topic in front of the entire UHMS assembly. He has some great ideas and I would like to dedicate a significant portion of the upcoming ACEP meeting to continue brainstorming a solution. Please join us at the upcoming meeting below.
