Christopher Logue, MD
Commitment to Patient-Centered Care
"I enjoy providing safe and effective administration of hyperbaric oxygen therapy for patients. I am thrilled to serve as the Medical Director for the state-of-the art Center for Hyperbaric Medicine at Hennepin County Medical Center."
Dr. Logue attended medical school at the State University of New York at Buffalo where he completed an honors thesis in Diving Medicine geared at improving the performance of oxygen breathing divers. He completed his Emergency Medicine Residency at Pitt County Medical Center and the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University in Greenville, NC where he served as Chief Resident. His fellowship training was in Undersea and Hyperbaric Medicine at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, PA. Following his fellowship training, he served as an attending physician in the Department of Emergency Medicine and as Chief of Operations in the Division of Undersea and Hyperbaric Medicine at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.
Dr. Logue's research interests focus on improving patient outcomes in wound healing and limb salvage, carbon monoxide poisoning, decompression sickness, arterial gas embolism and acute necrotizing soft tissue infections.

Dr. Logue uses fluorescence microangiography, a technology that can assess blood flow in chronic, non-healing wounds and diabetic foot ulcers. Hennepin County Medical Center is the first in Minnesota to use the LUNA™ Imaging System for wound assessment in the Center for Hyperbaric Medicine.
