Hypoxia chamber

In the hypoxia chamber, also called the pressure chamber or the compression chamber, the closed chamber is mainly used for the treatment of decompression disease, gas in a high pressure environment. Radiation therapy for cancer can be treated in hypoxia chambers (Figure 2). Radiation therapy is a cancer treatment that uses high-energy X-rays or other types of radiation to kill cancer cells or keep them from growing.

Hypoxia chambers are used to treat divers with decompression disease.

Experimental compression rooms were first used in 1860. In its simplest form, the hypoxia chamber is a cylindrical metal or acrylic tube with a large access cover to hold one or more people and hold their gaskets under high pressure. Air is pumped by another breathing mixture or oxygen compressor or allowed to enter pressurized tanks. The pressure used for medical treatment in the Hypoxia chamber is between 1.5 and 3 times the normal atmospheric pressure.

Therapeutic benefits of a high-pressure hypoxia chamber environment are directly due to compressive effects, increased oxygen to the body (due to an increase in partial oxygen pressure) or a combination of both. Decompression disease in treatment, for example, is an important effect of high pressure, The size of the gas bubbles in tissues shrinks. The treatment of carbon monoxide poisoning reduces the increase of oxygen in the blood to carbon monoxide removal and damage to cells and tissues.

What treatments are used in Hypoxia chambers?

Decompression sickness is also referred to as a twist or transverse section disease, the physiological effects of the formation of gas bubbles in the body due to rapid migration from a high-pressure environment to a low-pressure environment. You can fix this disease with a hypoxia chamber. The pilots of non-pressurized air vehicles, submersible divers and cron employees are very susceptible to disease because their activities are subject to different pressures from the normal atmospheric pressure on the site.

When the pressurized air surface is immersed in water, gas bubbles form in the tissues, resulting in a condition known as a decompression disease, which is a form of layers.

Atmospheric pressure, body tissues, solution, air contains a small amount of gas. Time is raised to a higher altitude, external pressures on the body are reduced and these dissolved gases are removed from the solution. The recovery of gases in Hypoxia chambers can improve. If the rise is slow enough, there is time for gases to circulate through the tissues into the bloodstream; then the gases go into the respiratory system and are ejected from the body.

Thoughts on hypoxia chamber care:

Underwater divers are faced with the possibility of inhalation known as inhalation of compressed air under shrinkage pressure. When descending into the water, the external pressure increases proportionally to the depth. Pressure is equal to the pressure of the surrounding water. The longer a diver lasts and the deeper the dive, the more compressed the gas absorbed by the body. When the diver rises, it must be allowed to release additional gases from time to time or to create bubbles in the tissues.

The main component of air causing decompression disorders is the hypoxia chamber for nitrogen. Oxygen breathing body and waste product, cells used by the carbon dioxide is provided with uninterrupted breath. On the other hand, nitrogen accumulates only in the body until it becomes saturated at body pressure. When the pressure drops, too much nitrogen is released.

The nitrogen is much more soluble in adipose than other types of fat, so hypoxia chambers tend to get less nitrogen than other tissues in tissues with high fat content (lipid). The nervous system consists of 60% lipid. Blisters in the brain, spinal cord, or peripheral nerves can cause paralysis and convulsions (divers), muscle coordination and sensory abnormalities (divers, numbness, nausea, speech disorders, and personality changes). When bubbles accumulate in the joints, pain is usually severe and mobility is limited. The term elbow is derived from this effect, because the affected person can often correct the joint.

What should be considered in Hypoxia chambers?

While using Hypoxia Chamber plain, small nitrogen bubbles that are trapped under the skin known as red rash and itching sensation, wavy itching sensation. These symptoms usually go away between 10 and 20 minutes. Shortness of breath, also known as excessive cough and choking, shows nitrogen bubbles in the respiratory system. Other symptoms include chest pain, burning sensation while breathing, and severe shock.

However, this procedure does not always damage the tissues.

Diving bell, sea floor or small diving apparatus used to carry divers between lower depths and surfaces. Hypoxia chamber is used when Check-out. Early cymbals consisted of an open captain at the bottom, usually equipped with only one pressurized air supply. Although in the primitive form, Bell is stated by Aristotle, the instrument is 18. He’s a century British Engineer. it was not fully viable until the end of the century.John smeaton, there’s a bell air pump. Regardless of the depth at which a diving bell is lowered, in principle, the minimum fresh air fills the current vital area. The pressure is regulated by the automatic pump and water pressure; excess air escapes from the sides of the container. As the bell decreases, the water level tends to rise in the bell. Surfaces, decreasing water pressure, decrease the level inside the bell. Thus, the pressure inside the bell remains as it is outside. However, some bells are kept under pressure at work depth and are used to advance towards a well-equipped surface. The compression chamber and workspace eliminate the need for decompression between the DCS in a task. Modern cymbals can accommodate four divers and are used at depths greater than 1000 feet (300 m).

The Hypoxia oxygen chamber works like this:

The Hypoxia chamber increases the amount of oxygen that travels to your body’s damaged tissues or parts with a weak flow of blood.

Hypoxia chamber; reduces swelling.

The Hypoxia chamber will heal the wounds.

The Hypoxia chamber helps fight infections in troubled wounds.

The Hypoxia chamber stimulates the formation of new bone when the bone is infected.

What happens during treatment?

With a technician, you will enter many rooms that can accommodate more than one patient, will be inside, will always be with you, or will be a Hypoxia chamber.

Will be given with a comfortable mask or hood and will allow you to relax and read while the treatment continues.

When you enter the room comfortably, hypoxia chamber is called air – compression, which is slowly compressed into the room. At this point, you will feel a fullness in your ears similar to the feeling of fullness.

Problems with Hypoxia Chambers:

When you feel this in the hypoxia chamber, you should open your ears. This procedure can be done easily by holding your nostrils between your fingers while the mouth is closed, by passing your lower jaw through your nose or by blowing your nose.

You will show this in detail by the technician. If you feel any discomfort, tell your hypoxia chamber technician who can help you. At the end of treatment, the mask or helmet is removed and the air in the Hypoxia chamber is slowly released. This is called decompression

Your ears will feel pop again, normal, but you won’t feel pain.

For daily treatment, total treatment lasts approximately 1 hour 40 minutes and may last up to 12 hours in emergencies.

How do I prepare to enter the Hypoxia chamber?

It is important to arrive 15 minutes before the scheduled treatment.

Please do not smoke about two hours before and after oxygen treatment before entering the hypoxia chamber. If possible, we should stop smoking, because this will help to heal.

Alcohol treatment before hypoxia chamber is not used.

Especially if you are diabetic, eat a regular meal before treatment. Before entering the hypoxia chamber, some diabetic patients may need to slightly reduce their insulin dose.

Take your medicine (if available) as usual. But tell the doctor what happened or changed.

If you have a cold or sinus infection, tell your doctor before you go to the doctor.

Is not allowed in the hypoxia Chamber

Some things can’t be brought to the hypoxia chamber. If you’re not sure, ask the technician.

Lighter / matches



Lipstick / Hat


Hair spray or hair oil

Petroleum jelly or other ointments

Synthetic clothes (cotton clothes are good)))

Hearing Aids

Rigid Gas Permeable Contact Lenses


How often is Hypoxia chamber treatment used?

A typical treatment method that the patient sends to the hospital will be daily from Monday to 30 to 40 days (excluding official holidays).

Hypoxia chamber are arranged between 09:00 – 18:00 each session is 2 hours and the treatment slots are arranged between 09: 00-18: 00. The hypoxia chamber appointment status depends on the number and type of patients currently treated. We will do this whenever it is possible to meet a preferred time.

We ask that all patients who apply for hypoxia chamber treatment try to do their best to complete the treatment process in a continuous block. Hypoxia chambers can often adversely affect the results of incomplete treatments.
