Abstract:

The Parcel, Transportable Recompression Chamber System TRCS is a reduced volume, semi-closed, dual place detachable lock recompression chamber system which features light overall weight and efficient use of compressed air. The treatment chamber is designed to facilitate hyperbaric oxygen therapy to a diving casualty tended by another diver or corpsman. Air BIBS is also available as an emergency breathing gas supply for both occupants in the model under evaluation. In production models, nitrox will be available through its own pressure reducing system. Unique to the TRCS is the ability to detach the outer transfer lock TL in order to facilitate a transport of patient and tender while under pressure to the site of a hospital or Definitive Treatment Chamber DTC.
