oxygen therapy hyperbaric chamber / multiplace
Description of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is the administration of pure oxygen at pressures greater than normal atmospheric pressure to a patient inside a hyperbaric chamber for therapeutic reasons.
This treatment is performed in pressure chambers of various sizes, ranging from monoplace chambers for one patient only, to multiplace or multi-compartment treatment chambers in which several patients can sit and where hospital beds or even an entire intensive care setting can be installed and where health workers can attend to the patients.
This therapy has been available for several decades and is used for many indications. It is typically administered at 1 to 3 atm. for 90 to 120 minutes. HBOT appears to be quite safe and the occasional adverse effects are mainly mild and reversible although they could, potentially, be severe and life threatening. State of the art installation and maintenance and adequate staffing is therefore of paramount importance.
HBOT has been used for many medical conditions. HBOT has become accepted standard therapy in a few life threatening conditions i.e. decompression illness and gas embolism; mainly based on historical empirical evidence.
We manufacture various type of HBOT Chambers.
The Omega is a classic shaped chamber and we also have a Rectangular type, both provide more space and less claustrophobic feeling for the patients during the therapy.
