The Townsville Hospital Hyperbaric Medicine Unit
The Townsville Hospital is home to a purpose built, state-of-the-art hyperbaric chamber. The facility, which meets all of the modern demands in the specialty of hyperbaric medicine, is the only chamber in Queensland outside of Brisbane. The facility has been installed to meet increasing elective and emergency needs, being the major hyperbaric referral centre for North and West Queensland, the Great Barrier Reef and South Pacific Regions.
The main lock (chamber) is able to treat up to eight patients per session with 2-3 sessions per day. The emergency lock can be used simultaneously which allows prompt treatment for emergency patients, without disruption to planned medial treatments.
