Safety in monoplace chambers
My clinic operates a Perry Sigma 40 monoplane chamber which is configured to be pressurized with air and the oxygen is administered via a BIB. and the chamber is constantly vented during treatment.
Basic safety protocol written for monoplace chambers are very strict about what can or can not be taken into the chamber mainly for fire reasons due to a oxygen environment. My question is that if the chamber is pressured with air can there be exceptions to what can be taken into the chamber e.g.. Headphones; books ; wrist watch etc.
I understand that in the commercial diving industry decompression chambers are pressured with air and O2 administered by BIB, and safety protocol in the commercial diving industry allows books ; iPods ; watches etc to be used in the chamber during decompression
I would appreciate if I could get some feedback on this.
