is a clinical treatment where the patient breathes 100% oxygen intermittently while enclosed in a hyperbaric oxygen chamber at a pressure greater than one atmosphere.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is growing fast and continuously. More than 17 diseases have been approved to be treated by Hyperbaric Oxygen treatment in Europe and USA.
Oxygen is colourless, odourless gas that makes up about 21 percent of the atmosphere. It is essential to life for two reasons :
O2multi type Multiplace HBO Chambers are produced in different sizes from 4 Person up to 12 Person. If requested we can produce more than 12 person chambers. The Multiplace Hyperbaric Treatment System is designed to provide hyperbaric oxygen therapy to patients at pressure up to 5.5 bar as well as treating diving accident. The entire hyperbaric treatment system including all subsystems, components, and ancillary support systems are designed to meet or exceed stringent hyperbaric engineering design and fabrication standards for health care facilities as required by EN14931 “Pressure vessels for human occupancy (PVHO) – Multiplace Chambers”.
The Multiplace treatment system is designed to pressurize the chamber using compressed medical grade air. Hyperbaric oxygenation is achieved by providing the patient 100% pure oxygen by mask or hood while exposed to elevated barometric pressure. Technical specifications of our O2multi chamber;
Baroks O?multi Multiplace Chamber is designed manufactured and tested according to EN 14931 norms. Pressure Vessel consists of 2 compartments which are called Main compartment and Entry compartment. Main compartment capacity is 12 patients and 1 health official and entry compartment capacity is 2 patients.
Chamber is painted with certified flame-proof and non-poisonous marine type epoxy paint both inside and outside. In order to make chamber surface smooth, sand blasting process applied to surfaces and then pasting is applied to the surface.
Materials and Tests
Only quality-certified “Boiler Steel H-II” with test report is used in O2multi Multiplace Chamber production. In addition; before the production, ultrasonic lamination tests and after welding process; xray, magnetic particle and ultrasonic tests (Non-destructive tests) are done by engineers. After the production, hydrostatic tests are done by engineers with attendance of TUV inspectors.
Medical Lock provides the transfer of the necessary medicines or equipment’s to and from the chamber during a session without interruption. Medical Lock is equipped with a double secured lock system and the accidental opening of the outer door of the medical lock is prevented when the chamber is pressurised.
Doors The chambers are designed to have 3 doors. Doors are designed as rectangular to allow easy access to the chamber interior. Regular sizes are 1,760mm X 860mm (Clear Height X Width), however can be designed and produced bigger if requested.
Viewports are used to observe the patients from outside. 6 viewports are used in main compartment and 2 in entry compartment.
Chamber equipments involve equipments in or on the chamber itself. These equipments are listed as minimum as follows:
Automation panel in O?multi Multiplace Chamber Systems has been developed specially for automatic control of chamber system and designed ergonomically for operator use
The panel consist of the following equipments:
The Baroks O?mono Model Monoplace Hyperbaric Treatment System consists of one compartment, is designed to safely provide hyperbaric oxygen therapy to patients at pressure up to 2 bar (3ATA). Monoplace chamber is designed according to European Standarts and is tested according to EN14931 requirements.
Only quality-certified “Special Steel” with test reports is used in our Monoplace Chamber production. In addition; before production of the chamber, ultrasonic lamination tests and after welding process; x-ray, magnetic particle and ultrasonic tests (Non-destructive tests) have been done by professional engineering staff. All these process is controlled and reported by certification company. After chamber production, hydrostatic tests is done by the certification authority surveyors.
The chamber has cylindrical shape and one entrance door
Are designed to treat a single person pressurized with 100% oxygen.
Table 1 : Chamber Parts
Stretcher is used for patient transferring and it consists of two parts as chamber internal stretcher and transfer stretcher. Internal stretcher is transported with transfer stretcher while the patient is transported into the chamber by pushing The stretcher is designed for working in hyperbaric conditions as mechanically.
Following IMCA guidelines and using European standards (GL, DNV etc.) Baroks produce and outfit its chambers with highest quality equipment. Keeping ‘safety first’ always in priority we take all precautions during production of the chamber as imposed by the standards. Extensive range of optional equipments are also available to allow the system to be custom-designed.
Decompression Sickness (DCS) is a condition in which rapid changes of pressure in an environment causes gases to form bubbles of gas, mainly nitrogen. In diving, when the diver descends, nitrogen is breathed in and is dissolved in the blood and tissues. Subsequently, nitrogen leaves the blood and tissues and forms into tiny bubbles when the diver ascends due to the drop in the surrounding pressure. If the nitrogen is not re-absorbed into the blood and exhaled through the lungs, these tiny bubbles can form into larger bubbles and cause serious damage to your body.
A variety of DCS symptoms may then arise when these bubbles become large in number and block the flow of blood.
Things such as diver-related errors, misuse of dive tables, malfunctioning dive computers or inaccurate depth gauges, are also contributory factors leading to DCS.
The above signs and symptoms may occur when the diver is still underwater, or they may come about as late as 36-48 hours after a dive.
Decompression sickness can only be treated through recompression in a high-pressure chamber. This apparatus slowly increases pressure on the person, forcing the bubbles to dissipate. The pressure is then gradually reduced to enable the person to breathe out the extra gases. Operation of the high-pressure chamber shall only be done by qualified medical personnel.
As soon as you suspect DCS, administer 100% oxygen through a tight-fitting mask. As soon as possible, seek for Emergency Medical Service (EMS) or the nearest medical assistance available.
