Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Martin Hamilton-Farrell. A patient undergoing hyperbaric (high-pressure) oxygen therapy, is attended to by Dr Martin Hamilton- Farrell. Hamilton-Farrell is director of Whipp's Cross Hospital hyperbaric unit in London, England. Pressure inside the chamber, which supplies pure oxygen, is 2.2 to 2.4 times atmospheric pressure.
