The maximum operating pressure of the chamber is 5 bar (6.5 ATA). Standard features include built-in fully automatic fire extinguishers, patient audio / video monitoring, air conditioning, computer / manual exposure control,% saturation O2%, chamber atmosphere O2% aspiration. A storage chamber tunnel is part of the chamber.

The chamber is filled with air (pressurized) (not 100% oxygen as in 1-chamber chambers). 100% of medical oxygen is inhaled by patients through closed masks.

  • Capacity for 12 people
  • Max. Operating pressure 5 bar
  • Filling with atmospheric air
  • Patient Audio / Video Surveillance
  • automatic exposure control
  • Measurement of the percentage of oxygen saturation and the percentage of oxygen in the atmosphere of the chamber
