Hyperbaric Chamber Stars In Latest Episode Of TV's 24

HBOT couldn't cure what ailed a bomb-vested terrorist in Monday night's installment of 24 on Fox, but the chamber provided the (ahem) high-pressure setting for his dramatic standoff and saved agent Jack Bauer's fictional life. A few geeky observations:
  1. Brainstorm on walls with a noxious felt-tip marker only in a well-ventilated area.
  2. Use of cell phones, not to mention radio detonator buttons, strictly prohibited.
  3. Drilling into a pressurized chamber, even with a low-speed bit, not a good idea.
SPOILER ALERT: The shocking conclusion of the standoff redecorates the room in colors some viewers may find objectionable.
