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).
