He didn't, in 1986 a photograph surfaced of Michael sleeping in a hyperbaric chamber, the tabloids theorised that in order to live to be 150 years old he slept in it each night. In reality the chamber had been purchased by Michael for a local hospital but he liked the idea of living up to his bizarre image so had a photo taken knowing it would grab headlines.

Will a hyperbaric chamber help multiple sclerosis?

A hyperbaric chamber is a small vessel which can be used as a diving chamber, or can be used on land to increase air pressure. It can be used to medically treat divers who were surfaced too quickly by re-pressurizing them to force the nitrogen in their blood to return to solution. Following this, they are decompressed slowly, which keeps the nitrogen in the blood in solution. Hyperbaric chambers can also be used in a medical technique known as Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT). This therapy has been shown to positively affect cerebral palsey, athough the mechanism is still as of yet undetermined. Some early experiments with Multiple Sclerosis patients showed that HBOT may help improve bowel and bladder control. However, a review by the Cochrane Collaboration discovered, after ten trials and 21 analyses, that there was "no consistent evidence to confirm a beneficial effect of hyperbaric oxygen therapy for the treatment of multiple sclerosis and [they] do not believe routine use is justified"
