QEII Health Science Centre Hyperbaric Unit

Hyperbaric medicine has been practiced for many years, originally tied to the navy and used to treat deep sea divers. Now, the practice has come a long way from its naval roots.

The only hyperbaric chamber in the Maritimes is housed at the QEII Health Sciences Centre in Halifax. The chamber has been a fixture in the hospital, healing patients with hyperbaric oxygen therapy for over 30 years.
