Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy increases the intake of cell-rejuvenating oxygen by the patient as they breathe in the 100% pure element within a pressurized total body chamber.

In the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy chamber, this medical treatment utilizes a high ambient atmospheric pressure to feed the body a higher concentration of oxygen.

The pressure is increased and controlled up to three times higher than normal. Under these conditions, the lungs and body tissue gain significantly more oxygen than would be possible by breathing pure oxygen at normal air pressure.

                                                                How the process works

All body tissue needs an adequate supply of oxygen to function. However, when tissue is injured, it requires higher levels of oxygen to grow and survive.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy increases the amount of oxygen in the blood. This helps fight bacteria and stimulates the release of substances such as growth factors and stem cells, which are fundamental in the promotion of healing. 

Additionally, an increase in blood oxygen temporarily restores normal levels of blood gases and tissue function to stimulate healing and fight infection.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment is effective in treating:

  • Anemia

  • Brain abscess

  • Bubbles of air in blood vessels (arterial gas embolism)

  • Burns

  • Decompression sickness

  • Carbon monoxide poisoning

  • Crushing injury

  • Sudden Deafness

  • Gangrene

  • Infection of skin or bone that causes tissue death

  • Nonhealing wounds, e.g. diabetic foot ulcer

  • Radiation injury

  • Skin graft or skin flap at risk of tissue death

  • Vision loss, sudden and painless

 

Combined with other treatments, HBOT can also treat or improve certain conditions:

  • AIDS/HIV

  • Allergies

  • Alzheimer's disease

  • Arthritis

  • Asthma

  • Autism

  • Bell's palsy

  • Brain Injury

  • Cancer

  • Cerebral palsy

  • Chronic fatigue syndrome

  • Cirrhosis

  • Depression

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Gastrointestinal ulcers

  • Heart disease

  • Heatstroke

  • Hepatitis

  • Migraine

  • Multiple sclerosis

  • Parkinson's disease

  • Spinal cord injury

  • Sports Injury and Stroke
