PHOENIX VISITOR INFORMATION
      PHOENIX: Desert character. It can’t be conjured, landscaped or kindled with twinkling bulbs. John Ford knew that. So did Frank Lloyd Wright and Louis L’Amour. Spend a few days in Greater Phoenix and you’ll understand, too. America’s fifth-largest city still has cowboys and red-rock buttes and the kind of cactus most people see only in cartoons. It is the heart of the Sonoran Desert and the gateway to the Grand Canyon, and its history is a testament to the spirit of puebloans, ranchers, miners and visionaries.
      This timeless Southwestern backdrop is the perfect setting for family vacations, weekend adventures or romantic getaways. Enjoy resorts and spas infused with Native American tradition, golf courses that stay emerald-green all year, mountain parks crisscrossed with trails, sports venues worthy of the Super Bowl and a spectrum of boutiques and fashionable malls few regions in America can match.

The UHMS Annual Scientific Meeting's primary goal is to provide a forum for professional scientific growth and development of the participants to improve knowledge and competence in order to further patient outcome. The meeting provides a basis for exchange of ideas, both scientific and practical, among physicians, researchers, and other health professionals.

The UHMS Annual Scientific Meeting consists of abstract and poster presentations, plenary sessions, the annual Bangasser and Lambertsen Lectures, and other social events. There will be exhibits from a number of hyperbaric, diving and wound care vendors. The Annual Meeting also affords an opportunity for participants to meet and interact past and present leaders of the Society, and to become active in societal affairs.

Expected Results (Goals or Objective)

To provide a forum for professional scientific growth and development of the participants.
To accomplish the aforementioned, the meeting is designed to meet the following additional goals:

To Provide an opportunity for participants to:

  • meet and interact with other scientists and medical practitioners. Specifically, participants should have the opportunity to renew old acquaintances and establish new contacts with basic and applied scientists and
    medical practitioners in hyperbaric and diving medicine as well as in the fields ancillary to hyperbaric medicine, i.e. nursing, allied health sciences, engineering, and health care administration; 
  • attend oral or poster presentations in which ideas and data are presented pertaining to currently accepted uses of hyperbaric oxygen and diving medicine; 
  • attend oral or poster presentations pertaining to the critique of current decompression schedules and/or the development of safer decompression schedules; 
  • attend oral or poster presentations or special mini-course pertaining to the physiology and pathophysiology of compression and decompression phenomena; 
  • attend oral or poster presentations or special mini-course pertaining to the physiologic, pharmacologic, pathologic, and biochemical effects of respirable gases with special emphasis on oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, and the inert gases, especially in the hyperbaric environment, on different levels of biological organization; 
  • attend oral or poster presentations or special mini-course pertaining to the pathophysiology and treatment of toxic and anoxic disorders in which HBO2 is used either as the primary or as an adjunctive therapeutic modality, with special emphasis on carbon monoxide poisoning; 
  • attend oral or poster presentations in which new ideas and data are presented pertaining to new directions of scientific inquiry and/or medical practice with respect to all aspects of high pressure biology; 
  • present material pertaining to their experiences within the diverse field of high pressure biology and to receive critical reviews of their work; 
  • be introduced to new diagnostic, research, or therapeutic techniques and equipment pertaining to hyperbaric medicine; 
  • participate in forums or discussions pertaining to technical factors and engineering pertaining to the development and use of equipment for hyperbaric environments;  
  • meet some of the past and present leaders of the Society and to discuss with them matters of scientific or clinical interest or matters of policy pertaining to the field or the Society;  
  • learn of the varied activities of the Society and the past and future directions of the Society; and 
  • become active in Societal affairs so that they could help influence the Society's future.

As a result of having attended the meeting, the participants should have had the opportunity to:

  • meet and interact with other scientists and medical practitioners: specifically, participants should have had the opportunity to renew old acquaintances and establish new contacts with basic and applied scientists and
    medical practitioners in hyperbaric and diving medicine as well as in the fields ancillary to hyperbaric medicine, i.e. nursing, allied health sciences, engineering, and health care administration; 
  • attend oral or poster presentations in which ideas and data are presented pertaining to currently accepted uses of hyperbaric oxygen and diving medicine and, where applicable, incorporate these ideas into their practice; 
  • gain a more in-depth knowledge and appreciation of scientific issues involved in critiquing decompression schedules and/or in developing safer decompression schedules; 
  • gain a more in-depth knowledge of current issues pertaining to the physiology and pathophysiology of compression and decompression phenomena and, where applicable, be able to apply this information in their practice; 
  • gain a more in-depth knowledge of the physiologic, pharmacologic, pathologic, and biochemical effects of oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, the noble gases, especially in the hyperbaric environment, on different levels of biological organization and, where applicable, be able to incorporate this information into their practice; 
  • gain a more in-depth knowledge of the current status of treating toxic and anoxic disorders, especially carbon monoxide poisoning, with hyperbaric oxygen and, where applicable, be able to incorporate this knowledge into their practice; 
  • gain new knowledge about the future scientific and medical directions of hyperbaric medicine and, where applicable, be able to incorporate the appropriate information into their practice to further improve patient outcomes; 
  • present material pertaining to their experiences within the diverse field of high pressure biology and to receive critical reviews of their work; 
  • be introduced to new diagnostic, research, or therapeutic techniques and equipment pertaining to hyperbaric medicine and be able to incorporate the relevant knowledge and procedures into their practice; 
  • meet some of the past leaders of the Society and to discuss with them matters of scientific or clinical interest or matters of policy pertaining to the field or the Society; 
  • learn of the varied activities of the Society and the past and future directions of the Society;
