The SOS Hyperlite Mod. 1 has received a new NSN Number, which is as follows:-
Between the 10th and 12th August, many of the the most influential names in the world of Hyperbaric Medicine gathered at the eighth IHMA HBOT 2012 conference in Long Beach, California. Distinguished speakers , including Prof. Paul G Harch MD, Prof. Philip James MD, Kenneth Stoller MD, and James Wright MD, who all gave presentations that provided further empirical evidence for the benefits of hyperbaric oxygen treatment and advancements in Oxygen Therapy perspectives.
A presentation by James Wright MD USAF (Rtd.) instigated the use of the SOS Hyperlite hyperbaric chambers for the transportation of casualties from the battlefront to the nearest available medical facility. The paper investigated the benefits of immediate hyperbaric oxygen treatment and provided evidence to suggest that the availability of on-scene hyperbaric chambers for immediate treatment or transfer-under-pressure capabilities would provide a capability to oxygenate wounds rapidly thus preventing hypoxia. The availability of a single occupancy SOS Hyperlite hyperbaric chamber, known as the EEHS in the military, provides capability for both on scene treatment and transfer under pressure. The International Hyperbaric Medical Foundation offered awards to several members of the HBO community, which included the Athena Award for Breakthroughs in Science & Engineering to John and Jane Selby of SOS Hyperlite for the development of an ‘air transportable hyperbaric chamber capable of 3 ATA.’ The SOS Hyperlite, which is approved for air transportation of casualties, remains the only portable non-metallic chamber approved by ASME/PVHO-1 the US national standard for hyperbaric chambers for all oxygen therapy treatments.
SOS Hyperlite would like to offer their warmest congratulations to Dr Philip James, who was awarded a Lifetime Achievements Award, as a pioneer of Hyperbaric Medicine. Dr James was responsible for the establishment of hyperbaric charity chambers in the UK, originally for the treatment of Multiple Sclerosis sufferers, and now offered to all those who are in need of oxygenation treatment. The benefit of such chambers for the treatment of various conditions has been undeniable, with NHS announcing further cuts and integrating a policy of no reimbursement for treatments other than for decompression sickness. The establishment of such chambers has made hyperbaric treatment available to all members of the public at affordable prices. Each treatment costs in the region of $60 and requires a medical prescription from a Physician or hospital.
