In 2009, the Geneva University Hospital (HUG) received a HAUX Starmed 2400 double hyperbaric chamber with capacity for 16 people.
Currently, HUG is the only university hospital in Switzerland to have such equipment. It is the responsibility of HUG to develop hyperbaric medicine locally, nationally and internationally, and to be a reference center in this discipline.
A Multidisciplinary Hyperbaric Medicine Program has been put into place to achieve these objectives.
The Multidisciplinary Hyperbaric Medicine Program must allow scientific research to be developed and increase the number of publications in order to:
In this context, we are participating in the cross-border research project SOS Gelures [SOS Frostbite]
The mission of the Multidisciplinary Hyperbaric Medicine Program is to implement not only the training of future generations of hyperbaric physicians, but also the training of nurses and hyperbaric chamber technicians.
Medical training: Creation and implementation of a Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS) in Hyperbaric Medicine
Paramedical training: Project to create training for paramedical personnel
