A program of the highest educational level that will allow you to act with confidence and skill as an expert in this field"

Although Hyperbaric Medicine is more than 200 years old, its multiple applications and indications are not known by many professionals of different specialties. The Professional Master’s Degree in Hyperbaric Medicine in Physical Activity and Sport will allow the professional to deepen in the use of hyperbaric chambers as a means to heal injuries caused by sports activity. Likewise, this training will provide you with the skills to handle Hyperbaric Medicine chambers directly applied to any type of pathology that has its origin in physical exercise. The program develops a solid and up-to-date training in hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which will allow the sports professional to develop the competencies and skills necessary to identify and adequately solve different cases of pathologies or therapeutic practices for which hyperbaric oxygenation can be effective and efficient. 

Its broad approach from different medical specialties allows the sports professional to consider the incorporation of this therapeutic tool in different applications and to optimize the treatments offered based on the fundamentals and effects of HBOT. 

Modern concepts of Hyperbaric Medicine are developed through the experience of the different teachers in HBOT, all the while considering the current reality of the specialty. The applications and limitations of the hyperbaric chambers for lower treatment pressures are presented in this course, as well as the concepts of traditional Hyperbaric Medicine and the basic concepts of underwater pathologies. All this, correctly adapted and prepared so that the sports professional can apply it in his daily practice.  

The expansion of HBOT using lower treatment pressures has wider applications, can be implemented by any Sports Science professional with the appropriate training and is adapted to the use of hyperbaric chambers with greater accessibility and safety for the patient and chamber technician. 

The online presentation of this subject, with theoretical content, online videos on specific topics, interactive classes, presentation of clinical cases and tutored self-assessment questionnaires make this Professional Master’s Degree unique within the sports specialty. 

The objective is for the sports science professional to recognize the benefits of hyperbaric chamber treatment for pathologies of diverse origin, to know the limitations and applications of the different chambers existing in the current market, to detect the contraindications of this treatment and to be able to evaluate the response to it based on the effects reported in the literature.  In addition, knowledge of the rationale and therapeutic effects in depth will allow the practitioner to develop clinical studies or case studies to define and discover new future applications of HBOT. Thus, the specialist will have the capabilities to actively participate in the use and expansion of the specialty in the field of Sports Sciences.
