Need Donations

Looking for movie DVD’s to donate to the Froedtert “Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber” unit.
These are chambers that a patient lays in for up to 2 hours for oxygen therapy under pressure.
See picture below.

It’s very time consuming and the time goes extremely slow without movies to watch (there’s a screen above each chamber).

If any of you have movie DVD’s that you’ve already watched and don’t mind donating, please let me know.
They can be any rating (G, PG, PG13, or R) - (Children through seniors use the chambers.)

Future patients will appreciate them.

Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy involves breathing 100% oxygen in a pressurized chamber.

What is a hyperbaric chamber?
A hyperbaric chamber is a large compartment, usually made of acrylic and aluminum, designed to withstand a large increase in internal pressure. The chamber is big enough for a patient to lay down, and it is equipped with a large acrylic tube containing windows so that staff may monitor patients during treatment sessions. Patients and staff are able to communicate through an intercom system while the patient is receiving treatment.

How does it work?
The air we breathe is a mixture of oxygen, nitrogen, and other gases. Our bodies are usually able to heal themselves with a normal oxygen level but in certain conditions extra oxygen is required. During HBO therapy, the pressure is increased to 100% oxygen. Breathing pure oxygen under pressure causes much more oxygen than usual to be dissolved in the blood and subsequently, the rest of the body. The extra oxygen is used in many ways. Depending on the underlying problem, the oxygen can improve wound healing by reducing swelling, keeping infection under control, and stimulating new blood vessel growth.

What conditions can be treated with HBO?
Problem wounds that will not heal with conventional therapy
Skin grafts and flaps that are infected or have not healed
Bones and Tissue that once received radiation
Bone that has been infected by bacteria
