SPUMS position statements summarise where SPUMS stands on issues that relate to Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine. The documents outlining the position statements are published in Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine Journal from time to time and are produced as a result of targeted workshops, or commissioned reviews by SPUMS members. Where a position statement relates to hyperbaric oxygen treatment, the document may be prepared by members of the Australian and New Zealand Hyperbaric Medicine Group subcommittee of SPUMS. The position statements are produced after assessment of the latest available literature and reflect what is considered to be best practice at the time of publication. It is expected that the documents are publicly accessible.
