Recompression Chambers: What They Are and How They’re Used
We all know that recompression chamber treatment is crucial for divers suffering from DCI, but we may not be exactly sure what the chamber looks like or how it’s used. This is especially likely given the diversity of health care systems around the world. Chambers can be simple or very complex, but an injured diver can be effectively treated in nearly any type. Only a few basic systems are needed; the staff is more important than the equipment. This two-part presentation will cover both the chamber itself and the approach taken by the medical team. We hope you’ll join us!
