This therapy involves patients to rest in a special chamber that is covered by a mixture of oxygen in 95 up to 98 percent for a long period of time. A normal atmosphere covers oxygen between 20.8 to 21 percent. Another thing, the chamber is pressured to around 1.5 times the usual atmospheric pressure.
