What is HBOT?
HBOT is administered within a hyperbaric chamber, delivering a carefully managed dosage of increased atmospheric pressure and pure oxygen over a prescribed period of time. This environment changes the relative pressures of oxygen, nitrogen, and other gases in the blood, organs, and tissues. Normally oxygen is carried by hemoglobin on red blood cells. Under higher pressures, oxygen dissolves in the blood plasma as well, increasing the oxygen-carrying capacity of blood. The increased oxygen facilitated the body’s healing process.
The Benefits of HBOT
HBOT is the only non-hormonal treatment approved by the FDA for the repair and regeneration of human tissue. HBOT can be used to treat all conditions which benefit from more oxygen being available in the body’s tissues, such as burns and wounds. It has also been used successfully to improve many neurological conditions including, but not limited to:
Traumatic Brain Injury
Carbon Monoxide Poison
