We provide Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) involves breathing pure
oxygen in a pressurized room.
At sea level, a person is exposed to normal atmospheric pressure (or 1 ATM) and breathes approximately 21% oxygen. In a hyperbaric chamber, this is increased to 100% oxygen and 1.5 to 3 times the normal atmospheric pressure.
This allows the blood to carry more oxygen and deliver 15-25 times more oxygen to the tissues and organs of the body.
Oxygen has natural healing properties and increasing the amount that is circulating throughout the body, stimulates the release of substances called growth factors and stem cells, which promote healing.
HBO therapy is done by sitting in a chamber known as a hyperbaric oxygen chamber and using a mask or hood. In an HBOT therapy room, the air pressure is raised up to three times higher than normal air pressure. Under these conditions, the lungs can gather up to three times more oxygen than would be possible breathing pure oxygen at normal air pressure.
