The Life Support Technologies Group Installs Two Additional Hyperbaric Chambers at Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center, Hartford, CT
Date:8/26/2013

Tarrytown, NY (PRWEB) August 26, 2013

The Life Support Technologies Group (LST) has installed two (2) additional hyperbaric chambers at the Center for Advanced Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine, Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center, Mount Sinai Campus, Hartford, CT, thereby increasing patient treatment capacity by 100%. These chambers enable patients to be treated at increased atmospheric pressure while they breathe oxygen. Benefits of hyperbaric treatment include faster wound healing, increased tissue oxygenation, enhanced immune system function, bactericide, and faster capillary budding around and within injured tissue.

Laurie Anne Loiacono, M.D., Director of the Center for Advanced Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine at Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center, said, “The additional hyperbaric chambers are needed in order to keep pace with demand and to continue to provide advanced wound care and hyperbaric treatment for our patients.”

Hyperbaric treatment involves placing a patient in a pressurized environment known as a hyperbaric chamber and having them breathe 100% oxygen. Hyperbaric chamber construction standards are established and published by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Pressure Vessel for Human Occupancy (PVHO) Committee. Monoplace hyperbaric chambers are the most common and are designed to treat one patient at a time. Multiplace chambers are purpose-built and can accommodate as many patients as they are built for.

LST installed Environmental Tectonics Corporation’s (ETC) latest monoplace hyperbaric chamber model, known as the Select. ETC is the manufacturer of the world’s first computer-driven hyperbaric chambers.

Currently, in the United States, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) approve hyperbaric treatment for fifteen (15) medical indications. Most commercial insurance carriers follow CMS guidelines for hyperbaric treatment reimb
