ECPD INTERNATIONAL SPECIALIST PROGRAM

HYPERBARIC MEDICINE

(Sarajevo, 1 - 5 April 2020)

UNDERWATER MEDICINE

(Sarajevo, 22 - 26 April 2020)

 

The aim of this educational program is to provide knowledge in the field of hyperbaric medicine and the physiology and pathophysiology of diving. Topics related to indications, contraindications and possible toxic effects of oxygen administration in hyperbaric conditions, as well as the effects of hyperbaric oxygen administration in the prevention and treatment of various pathological conditions, with particular emphasis on the effect of this therapy on peroxidation and antioxidant enzymes are particularlly processed. The importance of hyperbaric therapy is emphasized as part of a multidisciplinary approach in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, systemic diseases, radioecrosis, and neurology. Particular attention will be paid to the importance of applying this therapy in the preparation and rehabilitation of athletes.

The courses are intended for specialist training of general practitioners and specialists, medical technicians, physiotherapists, diving club doctors and diving instructors (course of underwater medicine).

Co-director of the program are Prim. Dr. med. Miodrag Živković, specialist in marine, hyperbaric and underwater medicine, physiologist, HBO Medical Center, President of the UG Serbian Health Organization, Belgrade, Prof. Dr. Tomislav Jovanović, Professor at the University of Belgrade and Professor of the ECPD of the UN Peace University and Prof. Dr. Vladimir Jakovljević, Dean of the Faculty of Medical Sciences, University of Kragujevac. The lecturers are distinguished experts in this field: Prof. Dr. Vujadin Mujović, Faculty of Medicine, University of Belgrade, Prof. Dr. Žarko Finderle, Faculty of Medicine, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia, Asst. Dr. Branislav Baškot and other prominent experts in this field.
