Welcome and congrats! I work for Accelecare which is all over the US, they offer training/certification on HBO for nurses and physicians through ATMO. Most of hyperbarics is based off military regulations, especially Navy, we use a Navy diving table to calculate AGE/DCS "the bends". Aside from that there are of course standard orders for wounds/osteomyelitis/osteoradionecrosis etc...
Depending on your credentials and certifications you could grow vastly in wound care and HBO. I have only been in the HBO arena a year and have loved it so far, especially coming from acute care/rehab!
As far as what is and is not to like about Hyperbarics, the pros heavily outweigh the cons in my case. I work alongside a physician or two all day which is a wealth of knowledge and I enjoy learning. I am hands-on all day long doing vitals, dressings, assessments, running the chambers, safety checks, chamber maintenance, etc. I am able to also develop good relationships with patients because I see them daily for two hours for 20, 30, 60, 90 or even 120 HBO treatments. I am one of a kind
(in my hospital), I am the only hyperbaric nurse. The clinical manager is also a nurse and qualified as a chamber operator but they have a pretty heafty workload therefore I am the only functioning chamber operator. Physicians who are qualified can operate the chambers as well but we have a panel of physicians who are in and out. The cons, its hard to get a day off or covered for anything, even potty breaks. I can spend up to 10 hours sometimes in that room and it becomes slightly annoying. People are afraid of the chambers and or chamber room, they think they might just "explode", that can be akward at times
and that's really it. I really enjoy HBO and wound care. Hope this helps!
