HYPO (Altitude ) Chamber
Application & use
The hypobaric chamber supports training of personnel in altitude indoctrination flights. This includes pressure breathing exercises, combination flights, rapid decompression, oxygen equipment use, and emergency procedures. Applications extend to high altitude physiological problems in hypoxia, hyperventilation, and mechanical effects of trapped gas, gas evolution out of solution and stress interactions.
Rapid decompression, with and without protective equipment, prevention of hyperventilation and pressure breathing problems can be studied within this chamber.
BAROKS hypobaric chambers are designed in accordance with EN European ” Standards for Pressures Vessels for Human Occupancy”, “man-rating” and “oxygen enriched atmosphere” capability.
