I'm considering an RN position in hyperbaric medicine, and I'm trying to research all of the risks associated with it. Is the nurse always in the chamber with the patient? Are there limits on how many treatments we do in a day? Has anyone suffered oxygen toxicity as a result? Or other side effects? Someone in a previous post mentioned fires -- how common are they?
Also, this seems to be very physically and mentally demanding... Are hyperbaric RNs well compensated? I hate to ask for specifics, but would really love to know.
