Abstract : The advanced care system for use in a hyperbaric chamber is a self-contained, rapidly transportable unit which contains a ventilator, patient suction, and vital signs monitor. It was developed to increase the level of life support available to an injured diver who might require advanced care, along with recompression therapy while being decompressed in an older model decompression chamber or other hyperbaric chamber not equipped with treatment equipment.
