Website update 4 May 2021
Unfortunately, after 2 years of development and content creation, I have taken the decision to cancel the renewal of the website. It appears there is plenty of interest in the material with thousands of downloads from around 60 countries and many thousands of readers over the past year, however very little interest in financial support. Despite the value of the material to hyperbaric staff and the general public, and the benefit the therapy has for a myriad conditions, downloads only seem to happen when they’re free and I simply can’t continue to fund the site. If the info has helped you or someone you know through the pandemic, if it has helped make oxygen handling safer etc, that’s awesome. I’m glad something I did had an impact, but its about continuing affordability now. there just doesn’t seem to be the public appetite I thought and hoped there would be for HBOT in Cumbria. I’m of the mind that if a global pandemic involving respiratory failure and hypoxia doesn’t raise interest in the therapy, I’m not sure much will. The site will discontinue from 1 July and fund raising will end in the coming weeks. I will, for now, retain the social media platforms and look at other ways to archive the material online that are free to host. Potentially on my personal platform on academia.org or LinkedIn . Alternately, anyone with questions about Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) or the technical aspects of diving technology can feel free to contact me directly through the Facebook or Twitter feed as many others have in recent months. A million thanks to those who did support financially. What we did get went directly, along with a top up from me, to professional services from Carlisle based advisors. If I ever get there by other means there is certainly a complimentary set of treatments with your names on them. Thanks all. Hayden.
The PayPal account has been closed following the announcement of a new fee structure. The GoFundMe has also ended based on it’s time limit. Please use the JustGiving link. Or use the tool below. Scroll down for images of what we would like to commission or purchase.
The maintenance of the website also comes at a cost, and in order to continue to develop this resource and maintain it as a largely free public information resource we need help to cover those bills.
The images below are of chambers I worked with recently and fairly accurately represent an example of what we are aiming for now. Either of these types of systems would get us going, enabling us to offer type 3 hyperbaric services. Perhaps even a smaller scale would be ok to start us off and is also pictured. The first prize is the 18 seater and the images show chambers ranging from single occupancy to potential 4 seater capacity, 7 seater and the dream of the 18 to 20 seater.
