ETC BioMedical Systems Group Installs Hyperbaric Chambers at St. Vincent Charity Medical Center
Southampton, PA, USA, February 27, 2013 – Environmental Tectonics Corporation (“ETC” or the “Company”) BioMedical Systems Group has delivered and installed three BARA-MED® Select(TM) hyperbaric chambers to St. Vincent Charity Medical Center, where medical professionals praised the computerized systems as “state-of-the-art.”
Director of Laboratory Medicine and Pulmonary Services Mario Markovic stated, “We are extremely elated with the ETC chambers as they provide us with state-of-the-art hyperbaric treatment. The size of the chambers allows comfort to the patient as well as ease of operation for the staff. The convenience of storing the gurney below the chamber is an additional perk and a space saver. The computerized system makes operation of the chambers precise and convenient and adds to our overall satisfaction. We would highly recommend ETC.”
President of ETC BioMedical Systems Don Webber declared, “We offer the largest computerized monoplace chamber in the world, improving patient comfort and oxygen savings at the same time.” The BARA-MED Select accommodates patients up to 700 pounds and is the only monoplace chamber which provides a gurney garage storage area for optimal use of space. The BARA-MED Select comes with O.S.C.A.R.™ (Operating System for Control and Recordkeeping), an automatic control system allowing for programmable treatment profiles; BARA·PRESS™, a software control system; and SMOOTH-RIDE™, a pressure change technology that enhances patient comfort, while reducing incidences of barotrauma by 67 percent, ensuring more patients complete all treatment sessions.
