What Is It?
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized enclosure known as a hyperbaric chamber. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a well-established treatment to help heal the body and mind. It is beneficial for brain dysfunctions, inflammatory diseases, and conditions where tissue healing is needed.
How Does It Work
In a hyperbaric oxygen therapy chamber, the air pressure is increased to 3x that of normal air pressure, also known as an atmosphere. Under these conditions, your lungs gather more oxygen than would be possible breathing pure oxygen at normal air pressures. Your blood carries this extra oxygen throughout your body. This helps fight bacteria and stimulates the release of substances called growth factors and stem cells, which promote healing.
The chamber itself is like a supersized sleeping bag. It is a single person unit with a long zipper top where the patient can enter and exit easily. Once inside, the chamber is sealed with zippers and straps and the pressure is gradually increased to the desired amount. Treatments will last from 30 minutes to two hours depending on your specific treatment plan.
