We have dedicated different area/building & manpower to manufacture these.
The ONE MAN HAPO CHAMBER is also popularly called HAPO BAG.
Introduction about HAPO.
High Altitude Pulmonary Oedema (HAPO), a common mountain sickness, is a hazard associated with rapid ascent to an altitude higher than 2700 m and is characterized by breathlessness, tachycardia, tachypnoea, mild fever and cough, besides blood stained sputum.
The effective treatment of moving the patient to a low altitude is often not feasible and thus simulation of descent is achieved with the help of recompression chamber.
One man HAPO chamber has been designed as a portable first aid device that provides emergency treatment for varying degrees of Acute Mountain Sickness including HAPO.
It works on a simple but effective principle of increasing the atmospheric pressure around the patient thereby simulating decent in altitude.
The Patient is kept inside the chamber that can be inflated to a maximum pressure of 130mm Hg thereby simulating descent of about 2500 m (8000 feet) without involving any physical movement.
It is made of double ply nylon fabric with neoprene coat that is durable and cold resistant. It has a 120 cm long air/water proof zip running across the length of the chamber and three transparent windows, which are provided for observation of the patient.
Length : 2220 mm
Dia : 650 mm
