What is Hyperbaric Oxygenation?
Hyperbaric Oxygenation therapy is a treatment that involves the breathing in of pure oxygen while in a pressurized room or tube.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a form of treatment in which a patient breathes 100% oxygen at pressure greater than 1 atmospheric pressure (ATA). In an HBOT chamber, the air pressure is three times higher than the normal air pressure. Under these conditions, your lungs can gather more oxygen than would be possible breathing pure oxygen at normal air pressure. The oxygen is then carried through your blood around your body which stimulates the release of substance called growth factors and stem cells which boost the body’s ability to heal. The aim of the treatment is to increase the O2 level dissolved in the plasma up to 15 times the normal amounts, which helps in treatment of many diseases.
HBOT therapy is a vastly established treatment for Decompressive (diving) sickness and Carbon Monoxide poisoning, however in recent years it has been widely used as treatment across a wide range of illnesses.
