Adapting the Hyperbaric Chamber to the Health Care Environment: History and Future Trends

Abstract

It has taken over three centuries to become aware of the therapeutic effects of hyperbarism, oxygen and the synergical and optimal use of their combined action. The first therapeutic hyperbaric habitat was set up in London by Henshow in 1664, but it was not until 1840 that Tabarie and Pravaz set up centres in France to treat patients with compressed air, followed by others in Europe after 1860. Oxygen, instead, was discovered by Priestley (1775), Scheele (1777) and Lavoisier (1777); however, it was not until 1878 that Paul Bert demonstrated its physical principles, physiological and pathological activities and pointed out its applications and potential toxicity.
