Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a medical treatment which enhances the body's natural healing processes by inhalation of 100% oxygen in a total body chamber, where atmospheric pressure is increased and controlled.
Under normal circumstances, oxygen is transported throughout the body only by red blood cells. With HBOT, oxygen is dissolved into all of the body's fluids, the plasma, the central nervous system fluids, the lymph, and the bone.
This way, extra oxygen can permeate all damaged tissues and the body can support its own natural healing process. The increased oxygen greatly enhances the ability of white blood cells to kill bacteria, reduces swelling and allows new blood vessels to grow rapidly.
"A simple, non-invasive treatment"
Greatly enhances the ability of white blood cells to kill bacteria
Reduces swelling and inflammation throughout the entire body
Dissolves into all of the body's fluids, plasma, central nervous system, lympth, and bone
Oxygen is carried to areas where circulation is blocked or diminished
Increases the growth rate of new blood vessels and nerve endings
Middle ear injuries, including leaking fluid and eardrum rupture, due to increased air pressure.
Lung collapse caused by air pressure changes (barotrauma)
Seizures as a result of too much oxygen (oxygen toxicity) in your central nervous system
