What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy? (HBOT)

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a medical treatment which introduces 100% oxygen to the patient in a painless, relaxing atmosphere. HBOT uses controlled pressure in excess of the usual pressure in the atmosphere.  The administration of 100% pure oxygen through hyperbaric oxygen therapy increases the oxygen delivered 10 - 15 times more than what is delivered at normal atmospheric levels or at sea level.

The HBOT procedure transports oxygen through out the body tissues and increases the oxygen entering the blood stream. By increasing the oxygen under controlled pressure the oxygen can reach tissue, bone, plasma, the central nervous system and the lymph that are not normally accessible to the red blood cells.

The air we normally breathe at sea level contains 21% oxygen, 78% Nitrogen and 1% of other gases. But, HBOT contains 100% oxygen which prompts healing and growth of new blood vessels, decreases swelling and inflammation, deactivates and clears toxins, metabolic waste and improves the healing rate and ability to fight infection.

HBOT has a positive effect on the immune system due to the increased efficiency of the white blood cells, which fights infection and kills bacteria. HBOT increases the effectiveness of the red blood cells to carry the oxygen to parts of the body that would not normally be reached.
