SOUTHAMPTON, Pa., Jan. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Environmental Tectonics Corporation's (Amex: ETC) ("ETC" or the "Company") BioMedical Division today announced the sale of two BARA-MED(R) XD Monoplace Hyperbaric Chambers for placement at St. Luke's Hospital in Allentown, PA.

Bob Toth, coordinator of St. Luke's hyperbaric program stated, "We have had a Hyperbaric Department here for more than 35 years and were in the market for a new chamber. After a recent tour of ETC to see the chamber and its capabilities first hand, we decided it was just what we needed. The operating system is great, and the Smooth-Ride(TM) pressure-change technology has been very well received by our patients."
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) entails supplying oxygen under pressure in a hyperbaric chamber. It is utilized in the treatment of carbon monoxide and smoke inhalation and other conditions including air or gas embolism, crush injury, wound care, decompression sickness, blood loss, soft tissue infection, radiation tissue damage and thermal burns.

The BARA-MED(R) XD includes a 4th generation time proven Windows(R) based operating systems 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.
Bob Salmons, NE Regional Manager of ETC's BioMedical Division, commented, "I believe this recent placement is a continued affirmation of the Company's design and production capability. Sales of our BARA-MED(R) XD chambers have increased dramatically in the past year and we look forward to the future."
