ANAHEIM, California, June 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Sechrist Industries, Inc. has partnered with Jay Buckey, MD, Professor of Medicine at Dartmouth College’s Geisel School of Medicine, to bring Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) to Tanzania. A Sechrist Monoplace Hyperbaric Chamber will be located at the Muhimbili National Hospital in Dar es Salaam and will be the first of its kind in mainland Tanzania. It will be used clinically to treat patients, as well as to further research into the use of HBOT. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy will be used to treat the following ailments:

  • Non-healing hypoxic wounds
  • Chronic bone infections
