    I'm doing this for overall health, however, I am getting older and hopefully this will slow down aging neurons.

    I have never been in one, but did send a lot of scuba dive victims to chambers over the years,
    but those are normally a different kind of chamber.

    That kind of chamber is a two seater so an attendant goes in with the dive victim.
    I have lost my mind. If found, please give it a snack and return it?

    Why yes I have, but not quite for the same reasons.

    I was a volunteer firefighter while on active duty, went into a structure fire that flashed over and my breathing gear was affected. When I got out the Chief sent me to the hospital where I was put in one of those boxes for treatment.
    Every day I beat my previous record of consecutive days I've stayed alive.

    How long was your treatment? More than one session? Did you feel any different after?

    Default I was in a bigger one....back in 1983.

    I was a crewmember of the USS RECOVERY ARS-43. We had divers onboard, and the navy had a BIG Hyperberic Chamber they used after dives. They invited me inside...but not under pressure. Their stay time was up to 6 hours, depending on the depth of the water, and how long they were down.

    Those guys, including our Skipper, the XO, and Ops officer were all Divers. As a RADIOMAN...I learned really quickly...Water, and electricity are not compatible if you know what's good for ya!!!

    USS RECOVERY was a Salvage ship. Little over 200 ft long, and it rode like a CORK when we crossed the Atlantic, and into the Med on deployment.



    The closest duty I ever had to McHales Navy. Talk about laid-back. But a really fun tour.

    I WANT MY AMERICA BACK!

    ICANSAYIT!

    I have to be sedated to do an MRI. One time I took a double dose and was literally bouncing off the walls on my way to the test.
