"Some pretty serious burns, but nothing a night in the bacta tank won't fix."
Ahsoka Tano to an injured Anakin Skywalker[src]

A bacta tank was a cylindrical tank into which a being could be submerged for extensive exposure to bacta, a fluid that could accelerate healing and treat major injuries.[2] Bacta tanks already existed during the Clone Wars, when the Galactic Republic used them to treat its injured soldiers.[4] After being attacked and severely injured by a wampa ice creature on the frigid planet of Hoth, Commander Luke Skywalker was put into a bacta tank so he could recover from his wounds.[5]

A bacta tank was located in Darth Vader's castle on Mustafar, where the Dark Lord would relax and meditate outside of his life support armor with a modicum of comfort.[7][6]
