During the Course, Dr. Dillon will highlight the following:

  •     FDA indications for end-diastolic boot therapy
  •     Clinician protocols for EDPC treatment across a range of wound types caused by vascular impairment
  •     The science underlying the strong clinical results of EDPC
  •     Utilization of EDPC as a co-modality with traditional HBO, angioplasty and bypass therapies
