A Personal Hyperbaric Chamber can be an asset to your health journey
With the availability of portable hyperbaric chambers for home use, you no longer have to be inconvenienced with the every day trips to a hyperbaric treatment center. Through Atlanta Hyperbaric Center, it’s possible to purchase a personal hyperbaric chamber for availing hyperbaric oxygen at home.
How is Hyperbaric Oxygen Administered?
At the normal atmospheric pressure, oxygen makes up 21 percent of the air that we breathe in. No one needs any convincing to understand how important and valuable oxygen is for life. During hyperbaric oxygen therapy, a patient lies in a specialized chamber where he or she breathes in oxygen under increased pressure, usually greater than atmospheric pressure. Hyperbaric oxygen is, therefore, administered in a closed, pressurized chamber. One can increase the pressure in the chamber by simply closing the valves.
Do you need a Personal Hyperbaric Chamber?
The decision to purchase a personal chamber is a smart one. However, there are things you must keep in mind before choosing a personal hyperbaric chamber. They include:
How long do you intend to Use the Chamber?
A quality hyperbaric chamber will be useful for at least two decades. It’s a good idea to invest in a personal hyperbaric chamber. Maintaining a personal chamber is easy since you only need to occasionally clean it and keep the environment hygienic.
To avoid being stuck with a hyperbaric chamber that doesn’t meet your needs, consider trying it out for a couple of weeks before committing to keep it. That means you consider buying a hyperbaric chamber with a money back guarantee.
How many People will the Chamber Serve at a Time?
Another important factor to consider is the size of the chamber. You have to determine the number of people you’ll want in the chamber at a time. Are they adults or children? What activities will they be doing in the chamber during treatment? A 26’’ diameter hyperbaric chamber can comfortably accommodate one adult lying down while a 42’’ diameter chamber can accommodate two adults and a child lying or sitting up. There are other sizes to consider.
How frequently will the Chamber be used?
Consider buying smaller, quieter, and lightweight compressors to ensure energy efficiency in your home. This is important, especially if you’re going to use the hyperbaric chamber on a regular basis and for the long-term.
Will Children be using the Hyperbaric Chamber?
You might want to consider who will be using the chamber. For young children and individuals with limited mobility, consider a hyperbaric chamber that they can easily get into and out of. In this case, a horizontal hyperbaric chamber with a side entry would do.
Where do you intend to keep the Chamber?
There’s a good chance you’ll be using the chamber by yourself which means you need an easy to use chamber. However, it’s also crucial that you consider where you’ll keep your chamber. A room with good air conditioning is preferable. Ensure there’s good air circulation, especially if you’ll be using your hyperbaric chamber with an oxygen concentrator. Be sure to keep the room’s interior temperature warm.
