I was asked what a “dive” is. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is largely an outgrowth of diving medicine. As such, it is filled with diving terms. A single dose – the application and removal of increased pressure and/or increased oxygen – is called a dive – just as the body is subjected to an increase in pressure and oxygen when diving below the water’s surface using breathing air. When Robert dives he is subjected to 1.3ATA = 4.4psig = 9.9′ of seawater.

Robert uses a 33″ Summit to Sea Military chamber. We also have a 10lpm O2 concentrator. Our chamber is on a platform built by Robert’s grandfather. The platform makes entry/egress easier and provides some storage space below the chamber. Summit-to-Sea
