DIVERS Recompression TREATMENT
Divers Alert Network (DAN) and DiveAssure accredited
Hyperbaric Chamber (HBOT) Facility in the Philippines
Recompression oxygen therapy is the primary treatment for Decompression sickness/bends (DCS) and Arterial Gas Embolism (AGE).
The therapy immediately reduces the amount of bubbles in the bloodstream, fills the tissues with oxygen, and reduces swelling. Throughout the treatment, diver-patients are accompanied by medical attendant nurses inside.
In most instances, it's critical to get treatment as soon as possible, because the symptoms of Decompression illness can be life-threatening.
Manifestations are one or more of the following: most commonly are joint pain, hypesthesia, generalized fatigue or rash; less common but more serious, motor weakness, ataxia, pulmonary edema, shock and death.
Our Hyperbaric chamber facility is supervised by a highly qualified and experienced Hyperbaric physician/Diving Medical Officer (DMO). The team is also composed of experienced nurses and chamber operators-who are trained and certified by American Nitrox Divers International (ANDI).

FIRST AID TIPS

Administer Medical grade oxygen as soon as possible.
Seek immediate medical assistance, locate a hospital with hyperbaric facilities and plan for possible transport.
