Introduction to Hyperbaric Chambers and Recompression Therapy

As divers we learn a lot about DCS (the bends) and hear about recompression chambers. How many have actually seen a chamber or taken a chamber dive? This course is a 4 hour classroom course and includes a chamber dive. You will learn more about DCS and DCS treatment. You will learn about how chambers operate and the differences between hyperbaric, decompression, and recompression chambers.The classroom session is 2 hours Friday evening, and the chamber dives are 2 hours on Saturday morning. We will discuss chamber safety on night one and give you guidance on what to wear and what to bring with you on Saturday. This will be a fun class and give you the opportunity to experience a chamber dive! Bring your logbook and dive computer. We will log your chamber dives.

Narcosis Training

This is a very unique course that is available for any dive certification level. The training event is about 2 hours and includes 1 chamber diver. You will have a safety briefing and classroom presentation on narcosis. You will then enter the hyperbaric chamber for an air dive. You will complete fun cognitive tests starting at 60 feet. Every 10 feet you will conduct another test to see the effect of compressed air and the onset of nitrogen narcosis. Bring your dive computers if you have one, if not, we have computers available. You can log this dive in your logbook. This is a fun and educational event that every diver should experience. The hyperbaric chamber is a dry environment. Although we call this a "dive" it is a dry dive. An instructor will be with you inside the chamber to answer your questions and conduct your cognitive testing. You must be fit for diving, so no congestion and ability to clear.
