Hyperbaric bed systems were for patients undergoing hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). HBOT is the medical use of oxygen at higher levels than atmospheric pressure. The bed system was used for postoperative care where patients require an oxygen-rich environment. Patients could watch television, listen to the radio and communicate via loudspeaker or telephone type handset while using the bed system.
