Kandima's Hyperbaric Chamber Facility

11 November, 2021

Kandima Maldives has yet again taken another step in adding differentiation to the resort’s offerings, not only to its guests but also the local dive community in the Maldives. Kandima has inaugurated its new hyperbaric chamber facility on 10th November 2021 in the presence of many VIP officials from Dhaalu Atoll and showcased an in-depth interactive demonstration at its state-of-the-art medical facility on the island.

Being referred as a true active lifestyle resort in the Maldives, Kandima has left no shells unturned when it comes to delivering a guest commitment and community expectation that is anything but ordinary.

This hyperbaric chamber facility is the only such facility in the entire Dhaalu Atoll and other neighboring Atolls and will facilitate to bridge a gap for such a facility in the Maldives. This new addition to Kandima’s fully equipped medical facility at the resort marks another strong milestone to its progressive brand commitment.

Hyperbaric chamber, also called decompression chamber or recompression chamber, the sealed chamber in which a high-pressure environment is used primarily to treat decompression sickness, gas embolism etc. The purpose a decompression hyperbaric chamber is to allow surface-supplied gas divers to complete their decompression stops in a chamber rather than underwater. The therapeutic principle behind hyperbaric oxygen therapy lies in its ability to drastically increase the partial pressure of oxygen in the tissues of the body. In other words, cells repair themselves more efficiently when exposed to a higher oxygen content via the blood.

The HBO Chamber is open at Kandima’s fully equipped medical facility for both divers and fishermen. The treatment is covered by all diving insurances and is part of Kandima’s CSR initiatives. The resort’s visionary commitment has always been to lead extraordinary endeavours to a healthier living with safety at the heart of every promise.
