Perry Life Support Systems of Palm Beach Gardens, Florida distributes the Hyperlite Stretcher and Treatment System in North and South America. The Hyperlite stretcher is the only non-metallic portable flexible hyperbaric chamber system manufactured and certified to ASME PVHO-1.
This system provides unparalleled treatment provision to emergency medical personnel and civilians for carbon monoxide poisoning at fire scenes and mining accidents, and for the treatment of decompression illness at dive incident sites or rapid aviation decompression. Rapidly deployed within minutes, the Hyperlite is the lightest and lowest bulk system capable of a full range of hyperbaric therapies available anywhere in the world. The unit can be assembled from its cases and be operational within minutes to transport a patient to the nearest medical facility while breathing oxygen under pressure.

Key Points to be aware of when considering the impact of carbon monoxide poisoning:

• Carbon monoxide is the most common poison in the world today according to the CDC.
• Approximately 40,000 to 50,000 emergency room visits annually for all types of CO poisoning. In the US, 5,000 to 6,000 people die each year from all types of CO poisoning.
• CO poisoning in the pregnant female is extremely dangerous due to the developing fetus and the increased affinity for CO by the fetal hemoglobin HgF compared to the adult hemoglobin HgA. Intrauterine exposure to CO has been associated with an increased incidence in cerebral palsy, seizure disorders and death.
• Firefighter fatalities related to poisoning or asphyxiation from 1999-2000 totaled 11.3%.
• The New England Journal of Medicine, Volume 356:2535-2537, June 14, 2007 Number 24 demonstrated strong correlation between CO poisoning and coronary heart disease and mortality in firefighters.
• The yearly average in coal mining decreased to 30 fatalities from 2001-2005.
•In 2006, the two incidents in West Virginia and one in Kentucky resulted in the deaths of 19 workers, accounting for 26% of the 73 U.S. mine worker fatalities in that year. 15 of the 19 deaths were related to CO poisoning.
• Cardiovascular complications where patients were exposed to moderate or severe levels of CO who suffered myocardial injury were at significant risk of sustaining early cardiac death.
• CO exposure manifests itself in the cardiovascular system through decreased myocardial function and results in chest pain, hypotension with tachycardia, cardiac dysrhythmias, myocardial ischemia and ventricular fibrillation.
• Normally, the half life of carboxyhemoglobin is four to six hours. Through HBO therapy, the effective half-life of carboxyhemoglobin can be decreased to 22 minutes.
• HBO therapy should be strongly considered for patients who have altered mental status, coma, focal neurological deficits, patients who are pregnant and have a carboxyhemoglobin level great than 15%, and patients with a history of a loss of consciousness.

The Hyperlite system has been used by the military for a number of years and meets all applicable US Department of Defense military specifications. Hyperlites are in service with the US Army, Navy, Special Operations, Coast Guard and NOAA.
