22-1 Introduction

Purpose. Recompression chambers are used for the treatment of decompression sickness, for surface decompression, and for administering pressure tests to prospective divers. Recompression chambers equipped for hyperbaric administration of oxygen are also used in medical facilities for hyperbaric treatment of carbon monoxide poisoning, gangrenous tissue, and other diseases. Decompression surface-supplied diving operations to depths greater than 130 fsw require that a chamber be available at the dive site.

Scope. This chapter will familiarize personnel with the maintenance and operational requirements for recompression chambers.
