Humans depend upon the consumption of oxygen all the time. Most atmospheric air is comprised of roughly 21% oxygen. Oxygen is necessary for the production of cellular energy in the mitochondria of every cell in the body. The use of pure 100% oxygen in a high pressure atmosphere has been shown to have extraordinary health benefits.
The hyperbaric chamber has pure oxygen coming in at pressures 1.5 – 3 times the normal atmospheric pressure. Treatment times range from 30-90 minutes. Using oxygen at higher pressures causes up to 20 times more oxygen to be absorbed by the blood and transferred to injured organs and tissues. This speeds healing and recovery time in addition to other benefits.
Breathing in 100% (pure) oxygen under increased pressure, called HBOT, allows extra oxygen to be taken up by the bloodstream and dissolved at a far greater rate. This extra oxygen can help where healing is slowed down by infection or where blood supply is limited by damage to the tissues.
HBOT has been shown to:
Many people benefit from hyperbaric oxygen therapy, especially those living with chronic wounds. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can help tissue heal through the growth of new skin, blood vessels, and connective tissue. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is generally considered safe.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy isn’t right for every person. Your doctor may recommend another treatment if you have certain medical conditions, including some types of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), respiratory infections, or cataracts.,
