The Board enjoys a long history as a trusted and respected resource. We frequently answer questions addressing operational, safety and technical aspects of undersea medicine and hyperbaric oxygen therapy. When appropriate, supportive literature and documents are provided to augment responses. The Board has generated a number of Position Statements that address key issues, and appear on our website.
What the Board is not able to do is address questions and provide advice related to medical practice, particularly with regard to ongoing clinical situations. This is beyond the scope of the Board’s mission and its core competency. Callers are advised of this limitation, sometimes to their frustration, but we hope that they eventually respect our position. Depending on the precise nature of a question, callers are invariably referred to one or more alternative resources.
