With only around 10 chambers around the UK set up for medical treatment, it probably ins't top of Doctors treatment options.

I think that if we are all just a little more aware of CO now, then this episode may just prevent a few more deaths in the future.

Carrying oxygen is probably impractical and probably pointless for most, whereas a detector and a plan in mind is probably sufficient. It has made me think about it and a detector will go in before next flight. Stay safe folks.

I transferred a ventilated CO poisoned patient to the police diving hyperbaric chamber at Preston police HQ for HBOT.
I left the power leads for the four syringe pumps keeping the patient stable/anaesthetised behind at base in error :oops:

Learning points :
1: electric kettle power leads fit syringe pumps
2: police HQs have plenty of kettles :lol:

The patient made a full recovery :thumleft:


Well Done!

You've got a slightly ironic name though!!

When showing visitors the Trident cockpit at JAM, and talking about the Flight Engineer role, I have sometimes used the analogy

"the pilots get the glamour, but the engineer may be more important. It's like the operating theatre: the surgeon thinks he's God and tells everyone; the anaesthetist knows she's God but does not talk about it"

The spec for this gadget appears to need 220v AC? so not a practical thing unless has a batt that would last long enough.


They do 12volt and battery powered models. I wondered whether:
a) any use for high altitude flying instead of bottled oxygen
b) any use if CO in cabin is detected, while the pilot finds a nearby aerdrome to land at.

Even small oxygen bottles hold enough oxygen for several hours at typical flow rates.

I never had the pleasure of the “Ground Gripper” , the VC10 was more to my liking!
My ex Trident mates tell me there were no Flight Engineers in BEA , it was crewed by three pilots, one of whom sat at the System’s Panel.
