Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
HBOT is used to treat wounds and diseases that are typically resistant to treatment. Oxygen therapy is a painless medical treatment where a patient breathes 100% oxygen in an enclosed environment (the hyperbaric chamber). Inside the chamber, the pressure has been increased to higher than normal, allowing the patient’s lungs to take in more oxygen that usual.
The oxygen-saturated blood moves throughout the body where it:
- Aids in repairing tissue that has been affected by poor circulation
- Helps new blood vessels grow
- Enhances the ability of white blood cell’s kill bacteria and fight infection
- Improves the body’s ability to heal
Hyperbaric medicine and treatment is helpful for many injuries and conditions—it saves many patients from amputation and offers hope to those who have not been successful with traditional therapies.
