HBOT

IS

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Non-Invasive

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.

Simply Oxygen

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.

Faster Healing

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.

Risks

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a very safe procedure. Complications are rare, however there are potential risks.

Oxygen

The air you are breathing right now is 21% oxygen, 78% nitrogen, and other mixed gases. During HBOT, you are breathing 99.993% pure medical grade oxygen. 

Over time, highly oxygenated blood vessels start going through a process called angiogenesis, where new blood vessels begin forming from pre-existing vessels formed in the earlier stage of vasculogenesis.

In addition, HBOT increases the amount of oxygen your blood can carry. This increase temporarily restores normal levels of blood gases and tissue function to promote healing and fight infection.

Healing Accelerated

Expedited Recovery

Hyperbaric oxygen has several specific biological actions which can enhance healing processes. These include: 

  • Hyper-oxygenation of tissue

  • Vasoconstriction

  • Down regulation of inflammatory cytokines

  • Up-regulation of growth factors

  • Antibacterial effects

  • Leukocyte effects

HBOT is an excellent adjunct therapy, as part of an overall treatment plan.
