Utila Hyperbaric Chamber and Trauma Center
The only Hyperbaric Chamber on the entire island is onsite at Utila Lodge. The Hyperbaric Chamber and Trauma Center serve Utila Lodge guests and members of the community. Should anyone on the island suffer from decompression sickness, this is where they will be treated.
While staying at the Lodge, you are welcome to visit the Chamber to meet it’s staff and tour the facilities. The Bay Islands College of Diving also runs an intensive Hyperbaric Chamber Operator Course should anyone be interested in learning how to operate this important medical equipment.
Beyond treating decompression sickness, the facility is also used as a trauma center. Everything from ear issues caused by diving to premature pregnancies have been taken care of here – no matter the issue, this team can handle it!
