NEW ORLEANS - July 18, 2016 - PRLog -- The 10th International Symposium for Hyperbaric Medicine Conference will be hosting for the first time in downtown New Orleans, LA.  This biennial three-day conference and expo is taking place the weekend of September 9-11th, and is organized by the International Hyperbaric Medical Foundation (IHMF).  Excitement is heating up as this prestigious professional medical event is now just weeks away.    This year's theme is Deploying Hyperbaric Medicine and Adjunctive Therapies into Health Care System:  Combining Public Policy and Clinical Outcomes.

Eminent speakers have been handpicked for their particular expertise and research in areas of Wound Care, Wound Management & Burns, Brain Injury, Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Cancer, Chronic Infectious Diseases, Lyme disease, Heavy Metal Poisoning, Environmental Medicine, Neuro-Rehabilitation, and much more.   The majority of speakers are US based, with one exception – Dr. Mal Hooper who will be traveling from Australia.

President of the IHMF, Edward Fogarty, M.D., excited about this year's speaker roster, commented, "Every effort has been made to make sure that our speakers will be covering a broad spectrum of topics relating to hyperbaric medicine therapy, both on and off label.   New science and research is key so that doctors attending can apply the latest research into their practice to improve the wellbeing of their patients, many of whom have critical conditions.  We will also be updating our attendees on new regulations and safety relating to HBOT".

Paul Harch, M.D., who is the Curriculum Director for the conference, as well as the keynote for the event, will kick off the conference with his latest research on the 15 HBOT Indications: Insights on dosing, pathophysiology, and the implications for traumatic brain injury.

Other highlights on day one will include the presentation from Paul Anderson, N.M.D. who will be discussing Adjunctive Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy in the Treatment of Cancer: From fear to Current Research Outcomes and Protocols in Oncology.
