History of Life Support Technologies Hyperbaric Courses
Life Support Technologies has more than a 20 year history of conducting introductory courses for hyperbaric Physicians, Nurses and Technicians. The path to strong educational efforts originated in our collaboration with Dr. Eric Kindwall, who began formalizing hyperbaric medicine training courses in the early 1990s. By that time, Dr. Jorge Beale had established a state of the art wound care center at Mount Vernon Hospital, and soon added hyperbaric chambers to the treatment modalities. He served as founder and director of that center until his untimely passing in 2008.

Both Dr. Kindwall and Dr. Beale were avid proponents of hyperbaric oxygen therapy, and enthusiastic about the advancement of medical education.

Dr. Eric Kindwall always believed in LST as the one group capable of delivering the hyperbaric medicine education he had so carefully established over his decades in the field. Dr. Jorge Beale mentored countless medical professionals and students, and provided invaluable time and materials for the Introduction to Hyperbaric Medicine course.

Several times per year, Life Support Technologies group carries Dr. Kindwall’s and Dr. Beale’s strong and passionate message to physicians, nurses and technicians in preparation for board certifications and continued learning. LST was and is firmly committed to continue the mission to emphasize training and education as an integral part of our operations as well as the hyperbaric training courses. Each course is designed to provide participants a solid foundation for entrance or advancement in this growing field.
