Why veterinarians should ONLY use a "Steel Class C" Hyperbaric Chamber for treating animals:



Only HVM's Animal specific "Class C" chambers are built with steel and thick borosilicate glass construction.


Steel chambers eliminate the possibility of vessel compromise due to scratching and

are engineered specifically to limit outside distractions, allowing the animal to rest.

Unlimited Life Cycle

HVM's Steel "Class C" cylinders do NOT have a predetermined life cycle and can last the life of the chamber with standard maintenance.

Class C:
 steel chamber
○ non-acrylic
○ unlimited
    life cycle

○ easier to clean
    & sanatize



○ prone to scratches
clear cylinder
    leads to unrest 
○ limited life cycle

Animal scratching of the internal surface of the acrylic tube can compromise the integrity of the acrylic cylinder which ultimately could lead to rupture, causing serious injury to both the animal and the operator.

Limited Life Cycle

Acrylic cylinders have a limited life cycle, at which time they should have a complete factory overhaul.  Estimated Cost:  $30-50K



mild hyperbaric CHAMBER

Mild acrylic & inflatable chambers are NOT considered true hyperbaric chambers, they are only capable of pressurizations reaching 1.3 atmospheres or less, this is called "mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy" (mHBOT). They cannot promote bone and tissue growth and can actually increase growth of undesirable aerobic bacteria.

○ fragile design

hvm chambers vs inflatable chambers


The integrity of acrylic & inflatable chambers can be compromised by animals and are NOT safe for veterinary use.
