What Is HBOT?
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy or HBOT consists of breathing 100% pure oxygen while inside a pressurized therapy chamber. The chamber's air pressure is three times higher than normal and can increase oxygen levels in your body up to ten times.
Although HBOT is a well-established treatment for decompression sickness, a hazard of scuba diving, other conditions such as serious infections and wounds that won't heal because of diabetes or radiation injury, benefit from this treatment.
Four factors determine the efficiency of oxygen therapy: duration, pressure, gas mixture and frequency. To benefit from HBOT, you'll likely need several sessions. The number of sessions depends on your health and medical condition.
How Does It Work?
HBOT involves breathing 100% pure oxygen in a pressurized chamber. The air pressure in the chamber is increased to 4 PSI or three times higher than normal air pressure. Under these conditions, your lungs can gather more oxygen than would be possible breathing pure oxygen at normal air pressure. This increased pressure, combined with an increase in oxygen to 100%, dissolves oxygen in the blood plasma, all body cells, tissues and fluids up to ten times normal concentration.
Your blood carries the pure oxygen throughout your body. This helps fight bacteria and stimulate the release of growth factors and stem cells, which promote healing, anti-aging and keeps threatened tissue alive so it can heal.
How Should I Prepare?
Do Not use the chamber if you are not feeling well: cold and flu symptoms such as fever, cough, sore throat, vomiting, headache, diarrhea or general body aches will require a temporary delay in your treatment schedule.
