We Found 1940s Medical Equipment in an Abandoned Sanatorium!


  • Thanks to Obras Ocultas for letting us use their track "Urbex 17" in this video. Check them out! https://soundcloud.com/obras-ocultas

  • It is so good to see that the two of you actually have some real respirator mask protection. Instead of those little dust and paint nose and mouth cover's. If I remember the respirator's you have on are at least two or three stage cartridge's. Both me and my Dad would use in our custom knife blade business. We would grind blade's from over 100 different stock pattern's along with some customer designed custom pattern's.

  • It would have been easier to put someone in an oxygen tent then to put them in an iron long. The main draw back of an oxygen tent would have been the flammable hazard the tent would have made for the patient and the area around the tent itself. All depending on the level of oxygen saturation needed.


  • This would honestly do really well on tv. Love the way you record and respect each property. All the information given makes it even more interesting to watch. Thank you for making these videos.

  • I'm really glad you guys started to wear masks. Seeing some of those conditions in prior videos (asbestos & black mold) have made me worried.

  • another tb place? thes places are almost like the plague everywere left to decay, kinda sad really as they were once nice building haunted too

  • The orange stuff is used to filter blood, those were tubes they used to filter blood / super old dialysis machine.

    I made this up but it sounds possible.

  • Just want you guys to know, your videos have always been a great escape to me. They have given me countless hours of enjoyment since I started watching a few years ago. Keep it up bros! Your videos are life! 😁

  • I wonder what this does.
    proceeds to twist knob(s), and/or push buttons, to see what it does
    I’d be so interested in what everything does!
    That stuff, was made, and Used, before I was born.

  • I like you guys. Your buddy Explore with Us Sux! Afraid all the time even afraid of a spider. LMAO
    You guys are Awesome, you take risks and go that extra mile. I enjoy your videos, Thanks

  • Why is HNO3+3HCl called royal water? – Quora. 'Royal water' (Aqua regia in Latin), so named by alchemists because it can dissolve the 'King of the metals', Gold, and also Platinum, is a mixture of nitric acid and hydrochloric acid, optimally in a molar ratio of 1:3. … Nitric acid is an oxidizer.

  • So I've always been rather curious about your abandoned asylums, sanitoriums and such…have you all ever stumbled across human skeletal remains at any point during your explorations??

  • I'm surprised all that copper wire and the copper roofing material hasn't been stolen. seems so strange that this equipment probably could have been sold at one point instead of just rotted away there's also some nice furniture that once was.

  • The Proper People are my favorite urban explorers because they obviously have expertise in actual filmmaking. Other explorers use long, uncut tracking shots that give me motion sickness. You guys know what you're doing. I really enjoy your videos. Thank you for what you do.

  • Wow those old medical records are fascinating. It’s amazing how much of the medical culture and the state of the art is reflected in those documents. Wonderful footage as always!

  • Thanks for giving us the ability to see these amazing places. If guys like you didn't go out and document this stuff we would all be missing out on seeing incredible places such as this one. We likely would never know they even exist.

  • i love that you did some research afterwards and added the bit about the examination table as well as all the general information about sanatoriums. it makes these videos so much more valuable.

  • The thing with the 2 glass tubes was for sand blasting people's taints from being bed ridden so long thus not washing themselves to often.

  • I would love to have the money to buy a place like this and restore it. I always think about that when I watch things like this

  • I’ve been trying to find this place forever, one day I’ll find it lol. Awesome video, you guys are wayyy to underrated. Keep up the good work 😊

  • I think the restraints on the rolling cots weren't restraints. They were straps to keep you from falling off. They remind me of the straps on a ambulance gurney.

  • 13:20 We need to isolate the SJWs in the same way. It's a disease even more virulent and destructive than tuberculosis . Also, thanks to SJWs, we now have tuberculosis in the US again…..as well as medieval reaper bubonic plague and the old French classic, cholera. Lovely historic tour guides, the radical left…..

  • Chest x rays were huge in the practice of TB. Would have been one of the first procedures done on patients they were seeing. Im sure countless numbers of patients in that hospital were x rayed in that machine. They would have been covered in lead aprons too.

  • If you get me that old calculator i can restore to original form. Could be worth some money or just a really cool piece to display.

  • Cool old stuff, and the buildings were still mostly incandescent-lit as well! The bulbs themselves are vintage now. I saw a nice, likely 150 watt clear next to the bottle you were trying to decipher the chemical content in the basement lab area, supported CC-8 filament, so pre-1978! I saw some S-1 sum lamps, there were S-2 and S-4, one was next to that odd machine with the tall acrylic rubes with the red powder inside, probably filter media, some kind of dialysis machine, I would surmise, and these have large bases because there is a ballast in the bottom, as the bulbs are mercury vapor, with Corex-D UV-transmitting glass bulbs. The S-1 and S-2 lamps use a pool of mercury in them a fair amount, in fact, and an inverted "V" shaped, low voltage filament between 2 electrodes. when switched on, the filament glows brightly at first, because it is the only thing in the circuit, like a regular bulb, then the heat from it begins to vaporize the mercury which, being conductive, forms a path between the 2 electrodes, and an arc starts between them. After a few minutes, the arc reaches full intensity, though it it is not great, because it is low pressure, and the filament dims because the mercury arc, in parallel with the mercury arc, is losing voltage to the arc, which takes up about 3/4 the current consumed, which is 400 watts for the larger, mogul base S-2 and 100 watts for the admedium base (bigger than regular household medium or standard or Edison base, smaller than mogul, so the bulb cannot be accidentally put in a non-ballasted socket, where it will "run away" and fail violently with no current limiting.) The advantage of these crude incandescent/mercury vapor hybrid bulbs, S-2 introduced in 1932, S-2 in 1934, is they will instantly re-start if there is a power interruption, and the incandescent filament adds infra-red (IR) rays to the ultra-violet (UV) rays to simulate the warmth and tanning effect of the sun all in one bulb. The S-4 was introduced in 1934 as well, and is a high pressure mercury vapor lamp with no filament, and and an arc tube with a mercury arc at high intensity. If IR was needed, a separate incandescent heat bulb or a heating element was needed. It has a 3-5 minute warm up when started, and a 7-10 minute period to cool, restrike, warm back up to full brightness if power is interrupted. These H-4 class bulbs look like regular A-19 incandescent bulbs, are clear, (S-1, S-2 are inside frosted, like the bulbs in this old buiding, but some rare clears exist, I have a rare clear S-1) with the quartz arc tube inside that runs at 120 PSI, and is electrically identical to H-44 and later, H-38 class, 100 watt general lighting mercury vapor lamps. The S-4 has the admedium base as well. General lighting H-38-4 lamps ate made in medium sandard base and mogul base, and H-44 are PAR 38 flood light bulbs with either admedium or medium side-prong plug-in bases. I have some Admedium ones, and a light with ballast they go in. Admedium sockets are rare, I have only 3 in my huge lighting collection, one in my S-2 sun lamp, one in that hand held H-44 with a woods' glass black light filter lens, and one on a laboratory spectral bench top light. Yes, the S-4 lamps, 2 of which I have, both NOS never used, one a GE and the other a Westinghouse, and both MAZDA brand from that era, will operate in either of my H-4/44/38 ballasts and sockets above, but NOT in the S-2 unit.

    I also noticed shitty modern trash, new world order, useless LED bulbs in the lighting strings ("temporary", but probably there for decades!) in use in the tunnels, which means any of that stuff is likely live! The fluorescent light still lit in one of the abandoned sections was eerie, too! Amazed the ballast hasn't failed, with all the moisture present, as these ballasts will absorb moisture and tend to short inside because of it, But, I guess, if it was in good shape and is left on, it will at least stay dry inside from the small amount of heat is makes. Actually, for me, seeing that is way cool! Stuff of dreams for a lighting guy! That section obviously has power, so any of the old stuff in there can be assumed to be considered live! The ceiling falling down was a plaster on metal lath ceiling, the final 2 coats fell off long ago, leaving the first coat, but this was a plaster ceiling, and was quite heavy! the support wires probably rusted through. the buildings all have concrete floors and are VERY solid still. These could easily be resurrected, and the crooked window you saw in that closet was not the building shifting, it was just the sadsh that fell out and was hanging on the sash clains or ropes. Those buildings are straight and solid as can be! The fact none of the copper was taken off the fancy roof, or light fixtures, glass, etc, vandalized is amazing! the busted glass on the fixtures was, sadly, caused by falling chunks of plaster, and also by globes getting full of water from leaky roofing, and freezing and breaking in winter. These are all salvageable buildings, all the way. OH–and MY wheelchair is not "huge" or "wide", but fitted to me, and is titanium, aTiLite ZRA series 1, with red spoke Spinergy LX wheels with titanium push rims, and Frog Legs suspension casters with 4 inch red tri-spoke anodized aluminum wheels with low profile urethane tires. Awesome chair. Rear wheels are cambered at 4 degrees for stability, too, and look cool! Those oxygen tent things are air conditioned, have refrigeration equipment in them and the plastic over them is a soft, clear vinyl, or WAS if it has lost plasticizer over the decades. It was water clear, too. The Jobst compression machine had inflatable bladders that go, usually on the legs and inflated and deflated at intervals to help circulation in bed ridden and paraplegic (like me) and quadriplegic people, and are still in use today, albeit in a small unit that hangs on the bed at the foot of it. I have had them on when I was in the hospital. Anyway, cheers, hope you enjoy my comment and learn something! 😀 Cheers!

  • Wow glad to see these buildings are still standing. Visited these in 06, could have sworn they were demolished by now.

  • The good ole days. I've explored mental hospitals, vacant warehouses, closed up DYS houses but never sanitarium. There was one two towns away from me but now that is where the county jail is now.

  • I really love the fact that there is so little scrapper an vandal damage to the buidings. With a little bit of imagination you can mostly figure out what was happening in a room & how it was done. This is just great, thank you

  • did anyone else hear the really cool evp they caught of a male scream/yell at 13.37. just after he says cut it. very cool.

  • Whatever that weird tube thing was at 18:00 with the red powder spread all over it was labeled "caustic"-able to burn or corrode organic tissue by chemical action

  • WOW!! You guys really hit the jackpot with this one!! Loved every minute of it. Thanks. TB Sanatoriums are my favorite buildings. Thanks for this one!

  • There's a reason these guys are the best. They don't disturb much on the sites, they don't waste time. They don't joke around. They're quiet and don't talk too much. They know what they're doing. And they're B-rolls are beautiful.

    I've been a subscriber for for over a year maybe 2 years, maybe more. Forget Exploring With Josh, Explore With Us, anybody who goes to Area 51, these guys are where it's at.

  • Just a guess from some lazy Google searches but maybe the large tubes with the caustic valve may be related to radium therapy? To make it clear though I know nothing of this field lol

  • I know I’m one person In the hundreds of thousands of people who subscribe to you guys but you guys are awesome. Thank you for awesome content and being nice people about your explorations.

  • I love what you guys do because I use to explore different abandoned places where I live as a kid and also went into old coal mines which thinking back was probably really dumb but really cool as well, to bad we didn't have the mind to take pictures.

  • If people are scared of being in hospitals today, just think of what it was like in the late 1800's and early 1900's.

  • The joint intermittent compression unit is a machine that helps keep blood flow going in the legs of people who have respiratory illnesses to prevent thrombosis. We still use them for ppl who are not able to get up due to illness. Our machines just look much less scary
