QE II 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.
