Abstract

Administration of hyperbaric oxygen to patients requires a special pressure vessel - hyperbaric chamber (multiplace or monoplace), installed as a part of hyperbaric systems. The hyperbaric chamber is a medical device, but to conduct the treatment it is usually necessary to introduce some other medical devices into it (ventilators, syringes and pumps, etc.). In the following chapter European regulations applicable to hyperbaric systems are presented by P. Müller, the hyperbaric fire fighting systems and related national standards are described by R. Houman, and the minimum requirements for the multiplace chamber according to the prEN14931 and safety aspects of medical equipment used inside hyperbaric chambers with a list of specific devices tested under hyperbaric conditions are discussed by J.
