Abstract:

The paper provides an overview about using of hypo and hyperbaric chambers at IAM Prague and about hyperbaric oxygen therapy HBO indications. Otoscopy and impedance tympanometry are pursued routinely on the instant before all expositions. The pilots status is monitored by method of pulse oxymetry during all hypoxic tests and demonstrations. The SpO2 monitoring provides the most valid longitudinal information about clinical status of examined pilots during hypoxia load. The therapy benefit during HBO is evaluated using transcutaneous oxymetry PtcO2 in the case of peripheral defects of tissue. It is necessary to achieve PtcO2 values about 350 - 400 mmHg for successful therapy of tissue defects of extremities.
