I'm in NC assisting in teaching, seeing clients and getting some hyperbaric oxygen treatments for myself. I want to tell you a little bit about an experience I had after finishing my hyperbaric. I was waiting for my mom and sisters to be done with their clients. While that was going on, I was chatting with the director of the chamber facility. As I am chatting, in the corner of my eye, I saw the gentleman that was in the chamber tapping on the window of the chamber. I told the director And she immediately was trying to see if he was ok. He wanted to get out of the chamber because he was feeling panicky and claustrophobic (that's what we thought because you can't hear anything)...so she begins the decompression. As you may know once you are pressurized, you can not just immediately open the door of the chamber: you have to be decompressed and slowly come up. The process usually lasts about 15 minutes. A few minutes into the decompression, he was really beginning to panic. My mom stood by the window of the chamber and tried to talk to him and calm him down and make sure he was breathing properly to prevent a full blown panic attack. It was a very stressful situation for everyone involved: even the onlookers! Because of him panicking, his breathing became labored. Now everyone is worrying! 911 was called because we do not know the situation inside the chamber. Chaos much!
So long story short, he was fine as soon as the door was opened!
What remedy did EVERYONE have to take?
Ill give you a few moments to try to figure it out and give you the answer tomorrow morning!
