The Hyperbaric Chamber (SSS/MHI International Clinic) on Calle 5 will host every Tues. and Thurs. night during July at 7pm.

 

There will be a presentation by staff doctors about decompression illness -- what it is (medically), how it's diagnosed and treated, what other diseases present similar symptoms, and more. The chamber techs and operators will explain in detail hyperbaric systems, protocols and procedures.

 

There is no charge and everyone in the community is encouraged to attend.

 

The program is offered in Spanish. English nights will be scheduled on request, so please let them know if you are interest in this (as I am!)

 

Parking is provided at the parking lot on Calle 5 between Melgar and Av. 5 Sur. Please do not block the street as it is used by ambulances.

Nice!

 

I've done chamber rides during college as part of a course. Not something I'd ever consider doing again if not necessary.
