Title: [abstract] A CRITICAL ASSESSMENT OF COMPRESSED AIR BREATHING IN THE MONOPLACE CHAMBER.
Author: Clarke, D; Fabus, S
Abstract: Intermittent air breathing has been demonstrated to be effective in decreasing the risk of central oxygen intolerance during hyperbaric oxygen exposure. Oxygen breathing has also been interrupted during episodes of acute oxygen intolerance with the aid of compressed air, in the multiplace setting. However, clinical experience and recent laboratory evidence fails to support the contention that compressed air breathing will interrupt an oxygen induced seizure. In recent years, operators of some oxygen filled chambers have adapted gas delivery systems to facilitate the introduction of compressed air. At the present time, there is some confusion regarding both the method of achieving air breathing in the monoplace chamber and its role during oxygen intolerance. This paper will discuss the indications, methodology and risks associated with the introduction of compressed air to the monoplace chamber.
