Happy Morpheus in the Soft HBOT chamber

Why do we prefer Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy using soft chamber? 

Karen has started using HBOT soft chamber since 2010, since working with a senior vet in a Veterinary hospital. She has seen whereby in any case of emergencies, we are able to safely decompress the chamber and retrieve the pet out almost immediately. With having the advantage of a human size soft chamber, worried owner are able to be in the HBOT session, holding their pet and assure they do not panic or tumble against the walls of the chamber. This gives a sense of security to both the animals and pet owners.
