What Is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy – HBOT?

hyperbaric oxygen therapy

Most of our patients have lost hope coming from failed medical procedures.  But soon regain not just their hope but health as well.   Studies have show HBOT to have positive effects for my conditions. Our patients are often amazed at the results of oxygen therapy, even after other approaches have failed.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy – HBOT is also known as HBO2 or as hyperbaric medicine. There are some common questions about HBOT, and its potential benefits for your health.

 

What Is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy – 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 1.3 ATA times the normal atmospheric pressure around 4.4 PSI.

What Is Mild Hyperbaric Therapy?

Mild hyperbaric oxygen 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.

 What Are Uses for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy – HBOT?

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved hyperbaric oxygen therapy – HBOT 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 injurys, caused by radiation, diabetes or infections.  Studies Have show HBOT positive results for.

  • Autism
  • Stroke
  • Wound Healing
  • Parkinsons
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Improve Sports Performance
  • Lyme Disease
  • Sports Performance
  • Injury Healing

 

Is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Safe?

Yes, hyperbaric is very safe.  The most common side effect is minor ear pain during the compression phase.  The condition of oxygen toxicity and fire, is a concern with hyperbaric medicine using 100% oxygen, this is not a concern for us . Because we do not use 100% oxygen.  With our hyperbaric oxygen therapy we use ambient air and an oxygen concentrator. There is no chance of toxicity or fire, even with regular use. That means you can use you phone or other electronic during your hyperbaric oxygen therapy session.  Most patients feel comfortable and relaxed in the chamber, and leave feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. In addition, this therapy is non-toxic, non-invasive and not expensive.

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.  As well as our staff member is always just few feet away, continually monitoring chamber pressure, oxygen flow and your comfort.

 

Will hyperbaric oxygen therapy Work Although Medications and Surgeries May Have Failed?

Most of our patients have lost hope coming from failed medical procedures.  But soon regain not just their hope but health as well.   Studies have show HBOT to have positive effects for my conditions. Our patients are often amazed at the results of oxygen therapy, even after other approaches have failed. Avoid waiting to find out what HBOT can do for you while your health slips away.
