The president of the Mexican Red Cross in the island of Cozumel, Daniel Cortez Gómez, announced on Feb. 15, that the hyperbaric chamber has been installed, but that it will not be until April when the other areas are completed and training is provided, thats when it will be fully functional.
It will be the first chamber of its kind on the island, since it will be mainly oriented towards medical treatments, such as diabetes, autism, Alzheimer’s, among others, although it can also be used to treat diving emergencies.
The big difference is the use of medical air, instead of oxygen, the most expensive cost for the handling of these hyperbaric chambers.
Oxygen will be provided directly to the patient through a mask, which saves operating costs by 90%.
Cortez Gómez declared: “we just need to train the personnel that will be in charge of operating the hyperbaric chamber. This piece of equipment is very much needed in the island of Cozumel, where we have more than 5,000 cases of diabetes, that could be treated using the chamber”.
The president of the Mexican Red Cross in Cozumel revealed that for the purchase of the equipment they used the 475,000 pesos collected during the annual Red Cross campaign in 2018.
For the first time, instead of dividing this amount among the different delegations, it was destined entirely to finish the chamber. The inauguration will be in April, along with the new medical pavilion and training area, with space for 100 people.
