Environmental Tectonics Corporation Announces Placement of Two Monoplace Chambers at St. John Wound Center; First Computer-controlled Hyperbaric Chambers in Oklahoma
Date:12/8/2008

SOUTHAMPTON, Pa., Dec. 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Environmental Tectonics Corporation's (Amex: ETC) ("ETC" or the "Company") BioMedical Division today announced the recent installation of two BARA-MED(R)XD Monoplace hyperbaric oxygen chambers in the St. John Wound Center, Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA. The state-of-the-art monoplace chambers are the first computer-controlled hyperbaric chambers to be placed into service in Oklahoma.

Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) chambers offer advanced care for chronic wounds by administering pure oxygen under increased atmospheric pressure, which speeds and enhances the body's natural ability to heal. This allows for an increased amount of oxygen to be carried by the blood system, offering multiple benefits to the organs and tissues of the body. Additionally, HBO improves the benefit of certain antibiotics, activates white blood cells and promotes the healing process in chronic wounds.

St. John Health System operates hospitals in Tulsa, Owasso, Sapulpa and Bartlesville. A fifth affiliate hospital is under construction in Broken Arrow, Okla., with completion scheduled for 2010.

"The staff of the St. John Wound Center is committed to the treatment of the whole patient, not just the wound," said Dr. Lam Le, Medical Director of the St. John Wound Center. "We work closely with specialists and primary care physicians to provide a complete care plan for optimal wound healing to address the specific needs of each patient."

Dr. Le noted that individuals with slow healing or chronic wounds may be candidates for wound therapy. Chronic wounds are characterized by tissue that does not heal in a timely manner, usually between two to four weeks.

ETC manufactures the industry's most technically advanced hyperbaric chamber. The BARA-MED(R) XD includes a 4th generation computer based operating system which controls and records chamber activity. ETC chambers continue to remain the leader in providing a patient friendly pressurization alternative (Smooth Ride(TM)) that minimizes complications due to middle ear and sinus barotraumas without increasing compression time.

Gene Davis, President of ETC's BioMedical Division, commented, "With placement of these chambers in Oklahoma, we are seeing an increased footprint of sales growth in the Southern United States."

ETC is witnessing an increased demand from hospitals and wound care clinics that recognize that our chambers are ready to meet the demands of EMR (Electronic Medical Records). ETC plans to continue to supply our customers with most well-designed and scientifically advanced products in a competitive market.

ETC designs, develops, installs and maintains aircrew training systems (aeromedical, tactical combat and general), disaster management training systems and services, entertainment products, sterilizers (steam and gas), environmental testing products, hyperbaric chambers and related products for domestic and international customers.
