A reduction in barotraumas attributable to the SMOOTH RIDE curvilinear compression profile is exclusively available with all ETC chambers.
67% Barotraumas Reduction
All ETC chambers provide a 67% reduction in barotraumas.* ETC hyperbaric chamber patients enjoy a more pleasant treatment experience by a decrease in the occurrence of barotraumas.
A More Positive Treatment Experience
With a 67% Barotraumas Reduction rate, patients receive a more comfortable treatment, which reduces anxiety and promotes an overall positive feeling toward HBOT. This increases the probability a patient will opt for HBOT over another treatment when provided a choice.
Increases Treatment Completion
Because of barotraumas reduction, more patients complete their treatment plans. This increases billable treatment hours and increases the chances that a subsequent treatment profile will be scheduled.
Increases Treatment Continuation
With the reduction of barotraumas experienced during the first treatment, patients are more likely to continue with subsequent treatments in the hyperbaric chamber.
This saves money and time as well as increasing the standard of quality patient care.
