Introduction / CE Requirements
Hyperbaric Treatment for Femoral Aseptic Bone Necrosis: Enrico Camporesi, MD
Avascular necrosis of the femoral head (AVNFH) is a debilitating and progressively disabling condition with partially understood, wide-ranging etiology and pathogenesis. Pathology is chiefly caused by a reduced vascularization of a terminal vascular bed, such as the one perfusing the femoral head, or similar vascular districts, such as the femoral condyles, humeral head, and other bony structures. Hypoxic conditions mediate the condition and can improve with multiple hyperbaric oxygen (HBO2) treatments.
Updates on Long Covid: Sandra Wainwright, MD
Sandra will be talking about long covid and she will be reviewing the literature on hyperbaric oxygen and its use in long covid patients.
