The medical application, using hyperbaric
oxygenation (HBO2) treatment in compression
chambers for medical illness, is still
in its initial stage and needs in-depth
scientific studies. All faculty in
this department are practicing not
only in hyperbaric medicine but are
trained in related basic sciences
as well as in related clinical practice.
In addition, the department is set
up to improve treatment and research
of hyperbaric medicine and seeks to
enhance the safety of working in hyperbaric
environment. The department also supports
the graduate teaching in the National
Defense Medical Center, via providing
health consultation for treatment
of diseases and for managing people
working in a hyperbaric environment.
The department is closely linked with
other medical organizations and hyperbaric
institutes to extend our scientific
research and clinical application.

and medical consultation to protect
the health of sport, military and
commercial divers in Taiwan.
2. Improve the scientific basis
of hyperbaric oxygen therapy and provide
standard treatment to the indicated
