SOUTHAMPTON, Pa., Sept. 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Environmental Tectonics Corporation's (OTC Bulletin Board: ETCC) ("ETC" or the "Company") BioMedical Systems Division today announced the sale of a BARA-MED((R)) XD Monoplace Hyperbaric Chamber to Dr. Garrett Post, a family practitioner serving the Atlanta, Georgia area.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a non-invasive therapy. In its clinical applications, the patient breathes 100% oxygen while fully enclosed in a specially designed chamber at ambient pressures up to three time's normal atmospheric pressure. HBOT is used to promote and support healing in the management of conditions in which oxygen transport to the tissues has been disrupted by traumatic injury, infection, inflammation, or edema.
Dr. Post commented, "The decision to acquire the ETC BARA-MED((R)) XD hyperbaric chamber was based largely on its computer operating system. ETC's Operating System for Control And Recordkeeping ("O.S.C.A.R." (TM)) is the only chamber on the market that provided both electronic medical records (EMR) and automation of the chamber, saving us time and money".
ETC is the manufacturer of the BARA-MED((R)) and BARA-MED((R)) XD, computerized monoplace hyperbaric chambers. O.S.C.A.R.(TM), is based on a 4th generation Windows(TM) based operating system, which produces a comprehensive EMR of each HBOT treatment. This automated system eliminates the need for operator dive time management and paper recordkeeping while ensuring comprehensive documentation of the treatment.
Don Webber, Vice President of Sales for ETC's BioMedical Division, stated, "The hyperbaric community is turning to ETC for automated hyperbaric chambers that provide patient comfort and safety. Our chambers reflect the latest in technology from ETC, a leader in mechanical and software engineering."
ETC was incorporated in 1969 in Pennsylva
