Recompression Chamber "Dive" Feb 6, 2011

Twelve crazy divers did a Recompression chamber "dive" on Feb 6, 2011 at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital. The weather was a little sketchy- snowing all the way to the hospital in the morning, but everyone arrived on time. The chamber operator had an informative powerpoint presentation about diving physiology and why the chamber is used for the treatment of diving related injuries. There were a few case studies too. Then we got a chance to do a dry "dive". With 12 divers, the room was full but still comfortable. The operetor turned on the computer and the pressure started to increase.  We had to equalize just like we were diving. At 30 feet in depth, the balloons we inflated earlier were only about half their original size. At 50 ft, everyone commented on how much warmer the room had become. At 90 ft, the ping-pong balls started to implode sounding like small firecrackers. By 120 ft, our voices sounded like munchkins and everyone was fairly "narked". It got a little crazy in there! The empty but capped water bottles looked like they had been run over by a truck. The compressed air was 20 degrees warmer and a little thicker when breathing. We went to 130 fsw (feet of salt water) for about 3 minutes and then we started our ascent. We inflated more balloons while at depth and Chuck even inflated a latex glove and tied off the cuff. As we ascended the balloons started to expand. The glove got enormous and eventually exploded, as did most of the balloons. The air got visibly colder and "foggier". We did a couple of safety stops and ended the dive after 38 minutes. We logged the dive using the computer record: 130 ft for 38 minutes. Some of the personal computers showed a depth of 131, but this was caused by their computer thinking we were diving in fresh water because we weren't at sea level. Everyone had a blast and many are planning to come to the next "dive". It's already scheduled for January 15, 2012. Look for the pictures on our Facebook page. We will try to put them on the Gallery page in our website when it becomes functional.
