NEW HYPERBARIC OXYGEN CHAMBER INSTALLED AT JUPITER MEDICAL CENTER
JUPITER, Fla. (September 18, 2012) – What’s large, round and
can only be installed via crane? A 40.5 foot hyperbaric oxygen chamber!
Jupiter Medical Center (JMC) received its third Sigma 40 monoplace hyperbaric
system at the Wound Healing & Hyperbaric Center on Saturday, September 9th.
Workers removed an entire window and part of the wall of the 1004 building
at JMC to install the chamber on the second floor.
JMC has the largest monoplace hyperbaric chambers available in the state
of Florida. This third addition offers a 40.5 internal diameter hyperbaric
therapy system for maximum patient comfort, safety and reliability. The
third chamber will be used primarily for clinical trials and research,
in addition to treating patients with hyperbaric oxygen for more than
twelve approved diagnoses.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is an adjunctive therapy which increases
the amount of oxygen concentration in your blood, allowing the oxygen
to pass through the plasma and tissues to the wound site, and promotes
the overall healing process.
The Wound Healing & Hyperbaric Center at Jupiter Medical Center is
located at 1004 S. Old Dixie Highway, Jupiter, FL. For more information,
