The Portable Altitude Chamber (PAC) is an effective, simple, durable, lightweight and affordable hyperbaric chamber for use at high altitude.

Rest easy in the knowledge that you can simulate descent in any situation, in any weather, at any time.

The treatment of severe altitude illness (HACE and HAPE) is descent. But if conditions do not allow for an immediate and effective descent, the use of a PAC simulates such a descent.

The hyperbaric chamber concept for simulating such descent has been around for more than 30 years. The PAC works by increasing the pressure inside the chamber using a foot pump.

The PAC is an Australian product, designed for trekking groups both private and commercial, as well as expeditions to high altitude.

The PAC Comes in Three Different Languages:

  • English – instructions in English are printed on the outside of PAC

The full English instruction manual is downloadable here: PAC Instruction Manual English 2017
