Oxygen Rebreather (THOR)

Oxygen Rebreather (THOR)


THOR is a closed-circuit therapeutic hyperbaric oxygen rebreather designed for use in recompression chambers and hyperbaric environments.

Traditionally therapeutic hyperbaric oxygen is supplied using the Built In Breathing System (BIBS). However BIBS are extremely inefficient as over 90% of the Oxygen is discharged “over board” following exhalation. This greatly increases the logistic challenges of conducting hyperbaric treatment, particularly in remote locations or during submarine rescue operations where sufficient Oxygen supplies have to be made available.

THOR addresses this logistic challenge by re-circulating Oxygen similar to a traditional “diving” Oxygen rebreather, thereby reusing exhaled Oxygen that would otherwise have been “dumped overboard” through the BIBS
