About this Site
This site was set up to promote the work of the Scottish Diving Medicine Group. It is part of Scottish Health on the Web (SHOW) and is the official NHS Scotland point of information for the public and other healthcare professionals on Diving Medicine. Information related to SCUBA diving can also be found on Hyperchamber.com.
Hyperchamber.com is the website of the Hyperbaric Medicine Unit of Aberdeen Royal Infirmary in Scotland. It includes indications for treatment, and has proven to be a popular resource among divers, healthcare professionals and the general public. Hyperchamber.com will now focus on non-diving indications for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy in Scotland.
