This is the oxygen chamber Michael Jackson famously used to fight the test of time – discovered by DailyMailTV who collected dust at the back of a warehouse.
The King of Pop posed for a now legendary photo in which he was lying in the $ 100,000 glass room in 1986.
He was then quoted: "I will be at least 150 years old."
Now, just a few days after the tenth anniversary of Jackson's death, DailyMailTV found the blue machine tucked away in a shipping container in a warehouse in Southern California.
The Sechrist 2500B hyperbaric oxygen chamber (HBO) ended up at a company called Hyperbaric Modular Systems, which specializes in alternative treatment.
This is Michael Jackson & # 39; s hyperbaric oxygen bottle he used 30 years ago, who exposed DailyMailTV tucked away in a shipping container in a warehouse in Southern California.
The King of Pop used the $ 100,000 glass room to combat old age and took this iconic photo that showed him in the room in 1986
Jackson swore by the machine and said that he & # 39; several long naps & # 39; in the room with the hope that he & # 39; would be at least 150 & # 39 ;. He said the room made him feel & # 39; a new person & # 39; to be
Can a hyperbaric oxygen bottle help you to live forever?
A hyperbaric oxygen machine works by giving the body three times as much oxygen and saturating the body with it.
According to Dr. Ian K Smith there are several benefits of the machine.
& # 39; People used hyperbaric chambers to rejuvenate their skin. It increases the amount of blood flow. The belief is that tissue can help. & # 39;
That hypoxic tissue gets oxygen and promotes the healing process while fighting bacteria.
The machine is usually used for divers to treat decompression illness and burn victims by applying oxygen to the wounds under pressure to accelerate healing.
Staying in the room for more than one to two hours can cause oxygen poisoning in the body, resulting in death.
Our reporter was able to discover exactly what the singer Heal the World experienced when he used the equipment 33 years ago.
DailyMailTV has also established the history of the room and how he ended up in Jackson & # 39; s hands.
In 1984, the singer got second and third degree burns on his face and scalp after his hair caught fire on the set of a Pepsi commercial.
After the accident, he was treated at the Brotman Memorial Hospital in Culver City, California.
The following year Jackson settled out of court with Pepsi about his injuries and received $ 1.5 million.
The star then donated all the money to set up the Michael Jackson Burn Center for Children in the hospital.
With this money, the hospital bought the $ 100,000 oxygen chamber to treat burn victims.
HBO treatment improves the healing time of burn wounds by applying oxygen to the wounds under pressure.
When the unit arrived at the new burn center, Jackson visited the hospital and saw him lying horizontally in the room with his eyes closed.
The equipment had never before been seen by the general public and when The National Enquirer performed the photos months later, they caused a sensation.
Jackson was at the height of his fame when the magazine claimed the regime was part of a crazy plan to stay alive forever.
The National Enquirer quoted the singer as follows: "I took a number of long naps in a hyperbaric oxygen chamber and when I woke up, I felt like a new person – I have never felt so good.
& # 39; I absolutely want one for my house so that I & # 39; can sleep in at night. I intend to buy one immediately. I want to live to see world peace, a world without hunger, a world in which children and all humanity have no suffering.
& # 39; I believe that if I treat my body well, I will be at least 150. & # 39;
Jackson, pictured in 1986, used the oxygen chamber at the same time in an effort to preserve his youth and & # 39; for eternal life & # 39;
Jackson is presented in an ambulance after being burned while shooting a Pepsi commercial in 1984. He won a $ 1.5 million lawsuit and the star then donated all the money to found the Michael Jackson Burn Center for Children.
The King of Pop bought the room at Brotman Hospital and had him move to his Neverland Ranch in 1994, where he would use it two hours at a time
It later turned out that Jackson himself had leaked the photos as a publicity stunt to promote his film Captain Eo.
Michael Levine, a prominent Hollywood publicist, confirmed that he was helping Jackson and his manager Frank DiLeo plant the story in the press.
Despite the strewn story, Jackson actually applied for his own hyperbaric oxygen chamber in 1994.
HBO treatment has been used for years to treat divers with decompression sickness, but doctors later discovered other uses.
In the room the patient breathes three times more oxygen than breathing air and the entire body is also completely immersed in oxygen.
The year before this machine was built in 1985, Jackson suffered second and third-degree burns to his face and scalp after his hair caught fire on the set of a Pepsi commercial, causing the hospital to which he donated this $ Purchased 100,000 oxygen chambers to treat burn victims
Dials on the hyperbaric oxygen machine from Jackson show a red emergency vent button and pressure regulators to control the valves to the room

This is a measuring instrument on the hyperbaric modular machine that Jackson used
Adrian Garay, president / CEO of Hyperbaric Modular Systems (HMS), a specialized company that makes large commercial HBO rooms for up to 12 people, tells DailyMailTV: “Michael expressed his interest in his own personal room in 1994.
& # 39; He approached Brotman Hospital and they sold the room he had returned to Michael and it was installed in Neverland.
& # 39; Michael did not sleep in the room because that would cause oxygen poisoning in the body and he would have died.
& # 39; Instead, he probably used the room at home for one or two hours at a time for health reasons. & # 39;
Garay claims that some people in the industry say that Jackson has bought the room for the purification of his body by oxygen, a kind of toxic flush.
& # 39; Sounds logical, with hyperbaric drugs you get three times more oxygen, so you saturate the body, so that hypoxic tissue now receives oxygen and promotes the healing process and also fights bacteria. & # 39;
But many still believe that the star – obsessed with Peter Pan – was desperate to slow the aging process.
"Ironically, thirty years later, scientists proved that the room can help prevent aging," Garay said.
& # 39; Scientific studies have shown that HBO treatment promotes the growth of older cells, effectively slowing down the aging process. Maybe Michael was right. & # 39;

This is the warehouse near San Diego, California, where Jackson's rejuvenation room has been stored since Hyperbaric Modular Systems was acquired 25 years ago
There are around 1,000 hyperbaric oxygen chambers in the US, around 750 of which are mono-place chambers or single rooms such as this.
The Sechrist 2500B is now outdated and replaced by more modern versions.
HMS makes rooms primarily for the medical world, for diving facilities or tunneling operations and ships them all over the world.
Garay said his company acquired Jackson & # 39; s room for the first time more than 25 years ago.
It is unclear what Jackson did with his room when he finished it, but it eventually found his way to another hospital in Santa Monica.
Jackson & # 39; s model of the hyperbaric oxygen chamber – the Sechrist 2500B- is now obsolete, replaced by more modern versions
The machine is usually used for divers to treat decompression illness or burn victims and the treatment takes one to two hours
HMS was then given the room as a form of payment for the work they had done for that hospital – and there were also stories from the previous owner.
Today, the 33-year-old room is still in top condition and is kept under a dust filter in a sea container in the company's depot in National City, near San Diego.
Garay, 38, who has worked for the company for decades, said the room is a peculiar point of interest for visitors, although he admits that he would consider selling it to the right buyer.
He added: “People are still discovering what this wonderful thing, called oxygen, is doing in the body, as an industry that we grow every year.
& # 39; There are very real benefits to this type of treatment, Michael was definitely planning something. & # 39;
I PUT IN JACKO & # 39; S OXYGEN ROOM DISAPPOINTED 6FT 5: DAYYMAIL.COM & RYAN PARIS ENTERS KING OF DOLL & EVERY LIFE MACHINE
It is an intimidating futuristic glass cylinder that is more at home in a sci-fi film than in your front room.
So I started to experience why the King of Pop liked to spend his time in his own hyperbaric oxygen chamber.
I slipped through the clumsy safe like a door and immediately began to feel claustrophobic behind the two-centimeter-thick glass – 6ft 5ins didn't help either. (Jacko was an easier 5ft 9-inch fit.)
Patients usually slipped into the narrow cylinder of a hospital stretcher, but with nothing in sight I had to come in from a small ladder. It wasn't the most gracious of entrances but I managed to do it – all in the name of art of course.
HOW TO GET TO THE JACKO OXYGEN MACHINE (AND COME OUT!)
You can't hear much from outside the room and everything seems somewhat distorted by the glass – I'm sure goldfish feel the same.
The heavy door slammed shut behind my head and I was trapped in my own surreal space that almost felt like a vacuum.
Patients can communicate via the intercom, watch TV, listen to music or just take a nap.
Once the oxygen is turned on, the changing pressure is the same as that felt in an aircraft during takeoff or landing.
Patients are told to equalize the pressure of the ear / sinus by yawning, swallowing, or trying to blow the nose while keeping it closed.
During the treatment you exhale up to three times as much oxygen in tissues as air from the breathing air.
It is believed that the treatment, which lasts one to two hours, can often be euphoric and energy-boosting.
Unfortunately, the oxygen was not connected to the Hyperbaric Modular Systems warehouse – so I will have to try again to see if I will actually be 150.
