The USC / Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber Day 2010 event is coming up on Wednesday, May 5th and if I didn’t have to work I’d definitely be going.
Those who donate get 2 dives on Catalina – I’m assuming at Casino Point – as well as a tour the USC Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber. If you’ve never seen one or had the chance to do a test dive in one, do it. I had the chance to “dive” the UCLA Medical Center hyperbaric chamber when I took my Divemaster class and it was a very interesting experience.
There is a really good article here on how the Hyperbaric Chamber is funded and why it is imperative to donate.
