SCUBA diving can be a dangerous sport, when strict guidelines are not followed. For those that run into difficulties, the presence of a hyperbaric chamber in close proximity is a rarity.
As hyperbaric oxygen under pressure is the only effective treatment, the presence of a Hyperlite is an ideal solution. Not only do you receive immediate relief from the effects of the illness, but while receiving the therapy, you can be taken to the nearest medical center, maybe even to a chamber where full hands-on medical attention is available. In a very remote location, full therapy needs to be completed on site, making the difference between full recovery and life in a wheelchair or even death.
For those that enjoy diving, and who wouldn’t in the wonderful locations that their owners so often choose, the presence of a Hyperlite hyperbaric stretcher on board brings peace of mind to all those aboard participating in the sport. When things go wrong, the benefit of early recompression greatly reduces the likelihood of a more severe deficit and possible permanent disability. The casualty can then be taken to a hyperbaric chamber by helicopter or other form of transport, already receiving the therapy that he or she would only receive a considerable time later. With diving accidents, the time from insult to recompression is of the essence.
