RBWH hyperbaric chamber supervisor Bob goes on a deep dive with his patients to get them back to health. ⚓🤿

After leaving the military in 1986 where Bob was a Navy clearance diver, Bob began a career working offshore where he began his saturation diving course in 1990 in Scotland. This then kicked off his 20-year long career as a saturation diver. 🛥️

In 2020, Bob took up a role as senior hyperbaric chamber supervisor at the RBWH where he has the important job of supervising the 'diving' side of patients going through a treatment.

Hyperbaric oxygen treatment is the inhalation of 100% oxygen inside a treatment chamber at a pressure greater than sea level.

“The doctors are the ones administering the drug which is the oxygen, but I am controlling the dive itself which is all done via a computerised panel," Bob said.

“We monitor the dive constantly by calculating what the decompression obligation is, so that it's not too much pressure for the patients because they don't have a nitrogen load.” 🫧
