Oxygen for hyperbaric and decompression chambers
Decompression chambers are airtight spaces in which the air pressure can be specifically reduced or increased. There is a wide range of potential applications for them. For example, they are used to treat decompression accidents among divers. Divers who have ascended too quickly from depth due to an emergency situation, for example, have a nitrogen content in their blood that is too high. In order to prevent the formation of gas bubbles in the blood and related tissue damage, the pressure in the chamber with the divers is increased and then slowly lowered. The nitrogen in the blood can be broken down in this way. In the various phases of hyperbaric oxygen therapy, gas with an oxygen content of between 21% and 93% is usually supplied to the hyperbaric chamber. The decompression chamber can also be used for other illnesses, such as carbon monoxide poisoning, arterial gas embolisms, bone necrosis, bone marrow edema syndromes, etc.
In addition, the decompression chamber can also be used prophylactically. Professional divers use them after a deployment in order to adapt to the atmospheric air pressure, for example. This is how they prevent decompression sickness. The time spent in the decompression chamber after long and deep dives can be several hours or even days and weeks. An uninterrupted oxygen supply is therefore the highest priority.
With regard to use in medical therapies, the oxygen for such therapies must be of high quality. The Inmatec POC Med series generators provide an oxygen purity of 93%-95% and therefore meet the requirements of the European Pharmacopoeia for medical gases, ISO 7396-1:2016 for pipeline systems for medical gases and ISO 13485:2016 for the quality management system for medical device manufacturers. In addition, the INMATEC oxygen generators are certified in accordance with the Medical Device Directive 93/42/EEC.
With our oxygen generators, we supply high quality solutions for the stationary and mobile production of oxygen for different applications, including for low volume requirements.
