With the construction of such sophisticated facilities as the hyperbaric chamber now contemplated, it might be well to seek out possible legal pitfalls in the application of high pressure oxygen equipment in the treatment of suspected or proved diseases in the human. A comprehensive discussion of the law as it applies to hybaroxia must include design, manufacture, installation, inspection, and use of the facility involved, also, the liability of the manufacturer, of the hospital, and of the physician. Legal literature reveals few cases in which these facets of the law have been discussed with special regard to the hyperbaric facility., Therefore one is forced to review principles of the common law and to apply them to hybaroxia, or refer to statutory provisions.
