Safety

This page will feature articles related to hyperbaric oxygen therapy, general safety and oxygen safety.

1). PERRY SIGMA 34 OHM METER CHECK VIDEOS
NFPA 99 Chapter 20 (20.2.7.4.1.3) states: The resistance between the grounded chamber hull and the electrical ground shall not exceed 1 ohm.
Checking for ground resistance between the hyperbaric chamber and the facility ground is a very important step when it comes to the centers safety program. This procedure is typically performed on a weekly basis (Monday morning before chamber operations begin) and documented on each chambers log (all chamber grounds have to be check individually). The 2nd video also shows the procedure for checking the static cord usually attached to the patient and plugged into the chamber’s ground plug after the patient has been loaded into the chamber.

  1. Wireless communications inside multiplace chambers.
    Is any one using wireless coms vs. the standard Amron unit?
    I just wanted to get a feel for what others might be doing?
    Sincerely,
    Ken

  2. Ken, I was really interested in using wireless in our chambers. Problem I had was there are none that are “approved” for HBOT. If you are using wireless would you be kind enough to tell which ones? Do you have anything to show they are safe to use in a chamber? If so how deep are they rated for? Thanks for your time.
