Setting up the room for a hyperbaric chamber
Note: the most important thing to know and many people find this out the hard way is to know the total amperage of the the chamber set up. This includes the compressors (usually 5 to 7 amps) and oxygen concentrator (usually 4 amp) and infrared mats, the closed loop cooler, the electrical port inside the chamber, and any other stuff not part of the chamber, the lighting, the TV, the fan.
Unless the outlet is a 20 amp outlet, having an oxygen concentrator and 2 compressors and the closed loop cooler can pull more than 15 amps that most homes with a standard outlet have.
Warning: If using an oxygen concentrator with a hyperbaric chamber I strongly urge people to NEVER use an extension cord. The longer the cord the more resistance it has and the more it creates heat. So many people get in their chamber and in the middle of their session the oxygen concentrator causes the entire breaker to cut everything off and if the 2 compressors are hooked up to that line the hyperbaric session is over.
Dehumidifier: This can be helpful if the room is muggy. In Florida I have found that even a closed loop cooler still can't get rid of that mugginess that comes in from the 2 compressors.
Chewing gum: I have found this helpful when the chamber pressurizes and depressurizes. It can be hard for some people to get up to 1.5 ATA and down from that. 1.3 ATA chambers are much easier. Going from 1.3 ATA to 1.5 ATA is much harder than the chamber going from zero inflation to 1.3 ATA.
Let me know if you have a 15 amp or 20 am outlet in your room on my Hyperbaric Quiz.
