On behalf of the European Baromedical Association, we deeply condemn the aggression demonstrated by the use of military violence to resolve any conflict between free independent countries.

The flagrant attack is an unacceptable premeditated act of violence, and we call upon all political and economical leaders worldwide to react and end the aggression by the Russian Federation immediately. Our solidarity is with all who are suffering from this unacceptable war, and any kind of violence around the globe.

EBAss RECOMMENDATIONS

on Patient Screening and Triage before starting HBO treatment

Screening Hyperbaric Patients for COVID-19

Early Identification and Prevention of Transmission COVID-19

  • As the COVID-19 pandemic is stabilising, the return to normal daily life will also see the need to restart the HBOT. However, vigilance and measured steps must be taken for safe practice and to minimise the risks related to SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19-positive patients during HBOT.

  • The recommendations are attached by UHMS and EUBS & ECHM position statement on the use of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) for the treatment of COVID-19 patients, in combination with the current policy of the hospitals to which they belong.

    However, in addition to these, three main points are suggested before a patient starts HBOT to be followed:

    • Measurement of Temperature.
    • Measurement of oxygen saturation.
    • The completion of a triage questionnaire (paper, email or phone) which is attached.

    EBAss Educational Videos

    It has been found that videotaped modeling and distraction techniques could be very helpful in reducing distress and improving patients’ compliance with HBO therapy.

    You can find here educational videos in relation to HBOT or you can upload videos that you are already using at your facility by sending an email at: info@ebass.org.
