Welcome to the International Congress of Hyperbaric Medicine, Coquimbo, Chile, 2022, an initiative that is part of the Project of the Innovation Fund for Competitiveness (FIC) “Regional Program of Hyperbaric Medicine and Oxygen Therapy”, which is financed by the Regional Government and developed by the Faculty of Medicine of the Universidad Católica del Norte (UCN). For many years, both authorities and medical professionals in the region have worked to establish the installation of a hyperbaric medicine unit in the San Pablo de Coquimbo Hospital and, with this, to advance in the training of the human team that allows its operation.
Pursuing this objective is that the UCN Faculty of Medicine was awarded an FIC project in 2018 which for 2 years it has been developing the training of professionals, including doctors, nurses, TENS, kinesiologists and researchers. The next step of this project is the realization of this important International Congress, whose objective is to address the latest advances and research in Diving Medicine and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and make the Coquimbo Region a national and international benchmark for this development.
The activity will feature prominent exponents of Diving Medicine and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy from different countries, who will present the latest advances in the medical and scientific community for the treatment of varied diseases as well as SARS-coV 2 given the global health emergency. The event will have a modern online transmission platform, with various simultaneous exhibition rooms and live English / Spanish translation, which will allow medical professionals from different parts of the world to connect and interact with the speakers.
We invite you to register and be part of this great experience!
