Description: Learn about the important benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy, and the ability of HBOT to help stroke victims.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is also known as HBO2 or as hyperbaric medicine. Following are some common questions about HBOT:

What Is HBOT?

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy involves patients resting for a period of time in a special chamber that contains a mixture of 95 to 98 percent oxygen. The normal atmosphere contains between 20.8 and 21 percent oxygen. In addition, the chamber is pressured to 1.5 times the normal atmospheric pressure.

What Are Uses for HBOT?

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved hyperbaric therapy for over a dozen health conditions, including the following:

  • Brain abscess
  • Injuries due to oxygen deficiency
  • Gangrene
  • Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
  • Decompression Sickness

In addition, research has shown that HBOT is effective in treating the delayed bone damage caused by radiation therapy (osteoradionecrosis). It may also be helpful in treating soft tissue injury, also caused by radiation.

Is HBOT Effective for Stroke Victims?

Although some tissue in the brain may be permanently damaged due to a stroke, often, the surrounding tissue merely lies dormant, and can be stimulated back to activity with HBOT. Because this dormant tissue is responsible for a significant portion of a victim’s dysfunction, HBOT therapy can often have dramatic results in treatment of stroke patients.

What Is Mild Hyperbaric Therapy?

Mild hyperbaric therapy (HBT) is a variation on HBOT, which uses filtered pressured ambient air. This process dissolves oxygen directly in the plasma, flooding tissues, cerebral and spinal fluids, and vital organs. In this way, mHBOT delivers oxygen to the body at the cellular level. This affects healthy tissue formation, increased health in the organs, and ultimately a healthier body as a whole.

Is Oxygen Therapy Safe?

The condition of oxygen toxicity, once a concern of deep-sea divers, is not a concern for a hyperbaric chamber. There is no chance of toxicity, even with regular use. Most patients feel comfortable and relaxed in the chamber, and leave feeling refreshed. In addition, this therapy is non-pharmaceutical and non-invasive. There have been no reports of any dangerous side effects.

Hyperbaric chambers are designed for comfort and safety. They offer a comfortable way to either sit or rest during the treatment.  Communication between the patient and anyone outside is as easy as speaking in front of each other. Windows allow the patient to see out of the chamber. There is also push valves. As a safety measure, the chamber can be depressurized and opened from the inside. The patient knows that he or she always has total control.
