What is a Hyperbaric Chamber
  • It is a steel vessel in which atmospheric
    pressure can be raised or lowered by air
    compressors.
  • It is used to treat divers or pilots afflicted
    with aeroembolism (decompression sickness
    especially when caused by rapid ascent to high
    altitudes and resulting exposure to rapidly
    lowered air pressure).
  • It is used to provide high-oxygen environments
    for certain medical treatments and operations.

Hyperbaric Chambers
  • It is a sealable diving chamber, closed bell or
    dry bell - is a pressure vessel with hatches
    large enough for people to enter and exit.
  • A compressed breathing gas supply to raise the
    internal air pressure.
  • Such chambers provide a supply of oxygen for the
    user, and are usually called hyperbaric chambers
    whether used underwater or at the water surface
    or on land to produce underwater pressures.

4
Types Of Chambers
  • There are two types of Hyperbaric Chambers -
  • MONOPLACE CHAMBERS
  • MULTIPLACE CHAMBERS
  • DECOMPRESSION CHAMBERS
  • RECOMPRESSION CHAMBERS

5
MONOPLACE CHAMBERS
  • Monoplace chambers are designed to treat a
    single person pressurized with 100 oxygen.

6
MULTIPLACE CHAMBERS
  • Multiplace chambers are designed to hold several
    people at one time and oxygen is delivered
    through a mask or a hood.

7
DECOMPRESSION CHAMBERS
  • It is a hyperbaric chamber used by
    surface-supplied divers to make their surface
    decompression stops.

8
RECOMPRESSION CHAMBERS
  • A hyperbaric chamber used to treat or prevent
    decompression sickness.

How should patients prepare for treatment?
  • They should use only clean cotton clothing which
    is allowed in the chamber.
  • No cosmetics, perfumes, hair preparations,
    deodorants, wigs or jewellery is allowed in the
    chamber.
  • The technician should know if any medications,
    including non prescription drugs, are being
    taken by the patient.
  • The patients are advised not to take alcohol or
    carbonated drinks for four hours prior to
    treatment.
  • In most cases, patients should give up smoking
    and any other tobacco products during their
    treatment period, as they interfere with the
    body's ability to transport oxygen.
