  • Discuss the potential hazards to COVID-19 patients that need to be addressed and studied including pulmonary oxygen toxicity and sick patients leaving ICU to go to HBO2 department.
  • Discuss operational considerations for facilities who intend to treat COVID-19 patients including, infection control in the hyperbaric chamber and staff education.
  • Discuss the balance between compassionate uses of HBO2 versus the need for IRB-approved, evidence-based research including strategies to translate limited evidence into clinical practice.
  • Attempt to synthesize the data that has been presented into a cohesive document with three general goals:
    • What questions have we answered?
    • What questions still need to be answered?
    • What elements of study design should be incorporated in future studies?
