Hyperbaric Chamber Rules for Proper Use

All prohibitions concerning the hyperbaric chamber are designed to minimize the risk of fire and explosion.

Any electrical medical devices used by patients must be specifically authorized for hyperbaric chamber use, and therefore not present any potential risk of electrocution.

All electrical devices, such as tools or medical equipment, that are used in the chamber should be specifically designed for use in a conductive environment and therefore be without any risk of electrocution.

The area surrounding the chamber must be a smoke-free area and combustible substances, or substances which may result in explosive or hazardous mixtures, must not be accumulated nearby.

Patients who are introduced into the hyperbaric chamber should not have on their own bodies products containing flammable volatile substances (eg creams, ointments, disinfectants, hairspray, lacquers, greases, oils, nail polish), nor enter with any flammable objects (eg matches, electronic cigarettes).

All fabrics and other materials should be 100% cotton or anti-static material as per NFPA-99 recommendations. Never permit any silk, wool, or synthetic textile materials inside the chamber (except those specifically approved for hyperbaric oxygen use).
