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 4
