Multiplace Hyperbaric Chambers

Hyperbaric Chambers

Multiplace Hyperbaric Chambers are designed to treat more than one person at a time facilitating treatments under higher internal pressure - up to 6 ATA, which extends the scope of treated conditions.

The design patterns, capacity, size, pressure compartments structure and accessories are varying, often because many big multiplace chambers are built to accommodate the hosting hospital’s specific requirements.

In modern Multiplace Chambers emergency and intensive care operations may be performed utilizing invaluable healing properties of Hyperbaric Oxygen. Due to Multiplace Chamber’s dual rectangular double doors and entry locks - doctors or patients can enter and exit chambers without interrupting the treatment.

Patients on wheel chairs or gurneys can easily being entered inside because Multiplace Chamber’s compartments are matched to the floor level.

Usually the medical oxygen is provided to patients via face oxygen masks or head hood assembly, and air is used to pressurize the Hyperbaric Chamber.

Some complications such as pneumothorax can be successfully managed during the treatment without the need to decompress the chamber.

Latest technology advances allow Multiplace Chamber implementing several different treatment protocols simultaneously during the same hyperbaric oxygen treatment. Some hyperbaric chamber manufactures provide complex multi-compartment hyperbaric systems in which each individual treatment protocol’s parameters are managed electronically by central console and supervised by the staff.

Large Multiplace Chambers require higher capitalization, operating staff and maintenance resources then Monoplace Hyperbaric Chambers. Therefore medical centers with moderate budgets and treatment requirements are often using smaller and more affordable multiplace chambers designed to treat just two or three patients, thus resolving some clinical limitations of Monoplace Hyperbaric Chambers and saving costs.

There are many Multiplace Hyperbaric Chamber Manufacturers and design patterns. Advancements in design and quality of Hyperbaric Chambers are contributing to the growth of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.
