Review:

"Hyperbaric Facility Safety covers a complex issue with an extremely broad range of topics. It was written with the objective of creating a comprehensive source document to assist all hyperbaric programs, serve as a safety primer, and to help cultivate the mind-set so vital to maintaining a safe environment for staff and patients alike." --Journal of Respiratory Care Practitioners (excerpt)


"There has been a proliferation of clinical hyperbaric and wound care facilities in the United States and around the world. The intended readership of this book is as diverse as the issues and factors that impact safety in hyperbaric facilities. Certain aspects of this book will be useful to local government officials responsible for enforcement applicable codes, hospital or facility administrators, facility maintenance staff, quality assurance personnel, and facility safety officers. Other parts of the book will be useful to chamber designers, architects, and equipment manufacturers. Finally, the text will be valuable to physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists, and hyperbaric technicians.

The editor's international approach to hyperbaric facility safety is useful and informative.

Finally, this book represents an enormous and long overdue effort to create a comprehensive source document that will serve as a safety primer and hyperbaric facility safety benchmark for established and developing hyperbaric and wound care programs in the United States and around the world." --Respiratory Care Journal (excerpt)
