Where there is a lot of scuba diving, there is usually at least one facility with a hyperbaric chamber to be found. Fortunately, Cozumel and its several dozen diver operators can make use of several hyperbaric, or decompression, chambers.
Divers who have been diagnosed as suffering from decompression sickness are given a prescription to lay down in a decompression chamber for up to five hours a day for several days in a row. During this time, a high level of oxygen is pumped into the chamber in order to rid your body of a high level of nitrogen that may have built up in your body.
Hyperbaric Chamber accepts most major credit cards.
