Life Support Technologies’ Mark Chipps Appointed to NFPA-99 Hyperbaric Standards Committee
Date:12/22/2012

Tarrytown, NY (PRWEB) December 22, 2012

The Life Support Technologies group (LST) is pleased to announce the appointment of Corporate Compliance Officer Mark Chipps to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA)-99 Committee. The NFPA-99 "Healthcare Facilities" document is the national standard for hospital construction and includes a specific chapter on Hyperbaric Chamber facilities. This NFPA-99 chapter sets forth hyperbaric equipment design, installation, operations and staffing standards.

Mark will serve as an alternate committee member to Michael W. Allen, LST Senior Vice President for Safety and Operations. Michael is also a member of the Main Committee of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Standard for Pressure Vessels for Human Occupancy (PVHO) and Chairman of the Medical System sub-committee, which is responsible for the development of the PVHO section specific to medical monoplace and multiplace hyperbaric chambers.

Mark Chipps’ appointment to the NFPA-99 committee is a testament to his unique capabilities and experience. Mark's primary duties are as LST Corporate Compliance Officer which includes the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS) National Accreditation program for LST Hyperbaric Hospital Partner facilities. Mark is also the Technical Director of the Nassau University Medical Center Multiplace Hyperbaric Service, East Meadow, NY, which provides both elective and 24/7 Critical Care services to the New York Tri-State area.

Recently, Mark, along with other LST tunnel personnel, led the LST Hyperbaric Tunnelling Support group in helping to complete New York City’s Metropolitan Transit Association (MTA) East-Side Access Tunnel Project connecting the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) with Grand Central Station in Manhattan. The LST group provided Hamilton / Kenyon DCAP Decompression Tables, Paramedics and Tunnel Boring Machine Hyperbaric Chamber operations. Over an eleven-month time period, the LST Tunnel group completed 382 Hyperbaric Interventions totalling 71 man-days under pressures to 34 psig (pounds per square inch, gauge), which is the equivalent of 76 feet of sea water.

LST senior staff has been honoured to provide continuous Hyperbaric / Hypobaric safety and technical leadership to the NFPA-99, ASME-PVHO and UHMS Safety Committees beginning in the early 1990s when the late hyperbaric pioneer and LST Research Director Dr. R.W. "Bill" Hamilton was first appointed.
