CHAPTER 22 Recompression Chamber Operation
Standard Features. Recompression chambers must be equipped with a means for
delivering breathing oxygen to the personnel in the chamber. The inner lock
should be provided with connections for demand-type oxygen inhalators. Oxygen
can be furnished through a high-pressure manifold connected with supply cylin-
ders outside the chamber.
