- Can my staff get trained as well?

With every purchase, we include a training for the veterinarian in charge of the machine and 2 staff members.

- What is the difference between a compressed air hyperbaric chamber and a compressed pure oxygen hyperbaric chamber?

Hypervet’s hyperbaric chambers are compressed air with pure breathable oxygen locally using either a mask or special cage versus a hyperbaric chamber that fills the entire chamber with pure oxygen therefore creating a more volatile chamber with a much higher probability of ignition.

- How long is a HBOT session?

It can go between 40 minutes to 1 hour depending on the patient and the diagnosis.

A single pet can get up to 2 sessions per day with 8 hours of difference between each other.

Hyperbaric therapy is very relaxing to the patient. The pet will be breathing as normal and laying in a comfortable position.

Such as the same sensation you feel when in a rising airplane and the cabin is pressurized. Different techniques and procedures are done to minimize the risks.

We recommend a yearly maintenance for our steel hyperbaric chambers. In comparison to acrylic hyperbaric chambers, our steel hyperbaric chambers don’t need a complete overhaul every 8 years.
