Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber (HBOT)
HBOT is an abbreviation for “Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.”, a medical treatment which enhances the body’s natural healing process by delivering oxygen under pressure.
What It Does
HBOT increases the oxygen content in the blood and in the cerebral spinal fluid, “flooding” the tissues with oxygen.
Patients are placed in a Vertical Chamber where 100% oxygen is circulated. The oxygen is pressurized so the air pressure is 2-3 times greater than normal.
As a result, the lungs and skin absorb more concentrated oxygen in a shorter period of time. This allows for growth of new blood vessels and increased chance for positive health effects.
Read, work, sleep in the chamber….you can stand up, lie down, sit on a chair…the options are endless. We promise you will feel rejuvenated afterwards.
What It Treats
Fatigue, chemotherapy side effects, Diabetes, Neurological Disorders, atherosclerosis, diabetic ulcers, MS, and macular degeneration. It also assists in the treatment of infection and helps restore brain function. Stress. Poor sleep. Increased circulation of stem cells, hormones — including anti-inflammatories — and other proteins. Regulation of hormone receptors. Reduction in cell death apoptosis. Angiogenesis (in growth of new blood vessels). Epithelialization — the increased epithelial formation of cells. Enhanced bacterial killing by white blood cells. Inhibition of bacterial toxin production. Fibroblast proliferation (wound healing). Increased bone density. Increased bone fracture healing. Increased oxygen concentration in hypoxic or ischemic tissue.
HBOT is FDA approved to treat the following conditions:
- Air or Gas Embolism
- Delayed Radiation Injury
- Exceptional Blood Loss
- Necrotizing Soft Tissue Infections
- Thermal Burns
- Crush Injury / Acute Traumatic Ischemia
- Diabetic Foot Ulcers
- Gas Gangrene
- Osteomyelitis (Refractory)
- Carbon Monoxide Poisoning / Cyanide Poisoning
- Decompression Sickness
- Enhanced Healing of Problem Wounds
- Intracranial Abcess
- Skins Grafts & Flaps (Compromised)
