Date(s) - Jun. 11, 2020 - Jun. 13, 2020
6:00pm - 10:00pm
As divers we learn a lot about DCS (the bends) and hear about recompression chambers. How many have actually seen a chamber or taken a chamber dive? This course is a 4 hour classroom course and includes a chamber dive. You will learn more about DCS and DCS treatment. You will learn about how chambers operate and the differences between hyperbaric, decompression, and recompression chambers.
The classroom portion will be held Thursday evening, June 11, at Trilogy Dive Center in Zephyrhills. Class will start at 6pm and will last until 10pm. Saturday morning, June 13, we will meet at the chamber in Hudson, Florida for the chamber operations. The classroom is approximately 3.5 – 4.0 hours and the chamber operations will last 2-3 hours.
We will discuss chamber safety on night one and give you guidance on what to wear and what to bring with you on Saturday. This will be a fun class and give you the opportunity to experience a chamber dive without being an actual patient.
Class size is limited to 10. Register early and guarantee your slot in class!
