BS EN 14931:2006 Pressure vessels for human occupancy (PVHO). Multi-place pressure chambers for hyperbaric therapy. Performance, safety requirements and testing

Pressure chambers for therapeutic use are required for the administration of hyperbaric oxygen therapy and for the treatment of decompression illness. These chambers are made to allow the safe administration of hyperoxic gas mixtures at pressure.

Such pressure chambers to allow all levels of patient care up to intensive care with all the necessary equipment and provide a safe working environment for patient carers. Atmospheric conditions within the chamber need to be comfortable and, in particular, oxygen levels require control in order to avoid hypoxia, oxygen toxicity and undue risk of fire.

BS EN 14931 applies to the performance and safety requirements and their associated test methods for multi-place pressure chambers designed for pressures in excess of ambient  atmospheric pressure and employed in medical installations for therapeutic purposes.

BS EN 14931:2006 contains:

  • Normative references 
  • Terms and definitions 
  • Performance, safety requirements and testing 
  • Operating instructions 
  • Marking
