Attending EUBS 2018
DDRC Healthcare Chief Executive Gary Smerdon and Operations Director, Peter Atkey recently attended the European Underwater and Baromedical Society (EUBS) Annual Scientific Conference. The event was held in Durban, South Africa, as part of the Tricon2018 congress.
Tricon, short for Tri Continental, is where EUBS, South Pacific Underwater Medicine Society (SPUMS) and the South African Hyperbaric communities come together to exchange views from eminent experts in the hyperbaric field.
Presentations ranged from discussions of the stability and political history of Egypt and the Red Sea to hyperbaric effects on pulmonary function and frostbite treatment.
Why is it Important to be at EUBS2018?
Peter Atkey, Operations Director at DDRC Healthcare explains:
“The presentations were very interesting and informative of the current state of thinking regarding hyperbarics around the world. It is really helpful to renew contact with other professionals to exchange thoughts and discuss topics affecting us all. Attending these meetings and conferences ensures DDRC Healthcare remains at the forefront of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy delivery and research. It also allows DDRC Healthcare to be integral to decision-making on the world stage, ensuring we continue to be recognised as world leaders in our field.”
