Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society

The Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS) is an International, non-profit organization serving more than 2,400 members from more than 50 countries.

Our diverse membership ranges from hyperbaric, diving and wound care physicians, scientists, nurses, technicians, respiratory therapists and other allied healthcare professionals who work in the field of hyperbaric, wound care or diving medicine.

The UHMS is the primary source of information for hyperbaric, diving, wound care medicine and physiology worldwide. The Society was founded as the Undersea Medical Society in 1967 but in 1986 changed the name to Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society. The name change reflected the rapidly growing interest in hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

European Underwater and Baromedical Society

The European Underwater and Baromedical Society (EUBS) has been founded in 1974 and is one of the oldest scientific societies in the field of underwater and hyperbaric medicine. The objectives of EUBS are to advance the science of pressure-related medicine and related disciplines, including hyperbaric oxygen therapy and compressed gas physiology; to assist in the promotion of research and medical/physiologic education in these fields and in the publication of the results of such research. EUBS organises a yearly Scientific Meeting (usually around September) and co-publishes the Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine journal.
