What is HBOT?
HBOT is a non-invasive medical treatment that involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized environment. This increases the amount of oxygen dissolved in the bloodstream, allowing it to reach areas of the body that are otherwise difficult to reach. The treatment is delivered in a specially designed chamber, either monoplace or multiplace, that can accommodate one or several patients at a time. The chambers are equipped with advanced systems that monitor the patient’s safety and wellness during the treatment.
What conditions can HBOT help with?
HBOT has been found to be effective in treating a variety of conditions, from acute injuries to chronic illnesses. Some of the most common applications of HBOT include:
Wound healing: Oxygen therapy can stimulate the growth of new blood vessels and promote tissue regeneration, helping wounds to heal faster and reducing the risk of infection.
Neurological disorders: HBOT has been found to improve brain function and reduce inflammation in patients with traumatic brain injuries, stroke, and other neurological conditions.
Pain management: The increased oxygen levels in the body can reduce pain and inflammation, making HBOT a useful complement to other pain management strategies.
Sports injuries: Athletes have used HBOT to speed up recovery from muscle strains, sprains, and other sports-related injuries.
How does HBOT work?
During HBOT, the patient enters the chamber and sits or lies down comfortably. The chamber is then pressurized with pure oxygen, typically to a pressure of between 1.5 and 3 times atmospheric pressure. This allows the patient to breathe in more oxygen than they normally would, which is dissolved into the bloodstream and carried to all parts of the body. The treatment lasts for around 60-90 minutes, depending on the patient’s condition and the prescribed protocol.
What are the benefits of HBOT?
The benefits of HBOT can be far-reaching and long-lasting. Some of the most commonly reported benefits of oxygen therapy include:
Faster healing of wounds and injuries.
Improved cognitive function and mental clarity.
Reduced inflammation and pain.
Boosted immune function and infection prevention.
Increased energy and vitality.
