What you will experience during a “Hyperbaric Chamber Operator and Chamber Course”?

1.       We will take you to one of Thailand’s military base to see how some of the most professional Hyperbaric Chamber facilities are run. Plus you will be able to see the finest equipment being used here in Asia. The military is using a 6 person Double lock double entry hyperbaric chamber with additional Medical lock.

 

2.        Visit one of the local hospitals to see a hyperbaric treatment using a mono-place SECHRIST chamber. This chamber is a very popular chamber used in hospitals for treating wounds of patients.

 

3.       Visit a local “Commercial Diving” operation and operate one of their double lock chambers that are used during actual commercial diving operations.
