Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) Q & A

What is HBOT:

An HBOT chamber increases the pressure to three times what is normal, allowing increased absorption of oxygen into the bloodstream. The increased oxygen in your blood can help your body fight infections, as well as stimulate growth factors and stem cells that rejuvenate and heal difficult to treat injuries and diseases.

Who is HBOT good for?

An article released by the Mayo Clinic states that HBOT is good for many conditions, including, but not limited to:

  • AIDS/HIV
  • Allergies
  • Alzheimer's disease
  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Autism
  • Bell's palsy
  • Brain injury
  • Cancer
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Cirrhosis
  • Crushing injury
  • Depression
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Gangrene
  • Gastrointestinal ulcers
  • Hearing loss
  • Heart disease
  • Heatstroke
  • Hepatitis
  • Infection of skin or bone that causes tissue death
  • Migraine
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Nonhealing wounds, such as a diabetic foot ulcer
  • Parkinson's disease
  • Radiation injury
  • Skin graft or skin flap at risk of tissue death
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Sports injury
  • Stroke
  • Vision loss, sudden and painless

 

How long does HBOT last?

The best results of HBOT are achieved by doing a series of treatments close together. We recommend 40 sessions in 50 days for most patients.

What are the side effects of HBOT?

HBOT is generally safe, but caution should be used in patients who have eye pressure changes or problems, such as glaucoma, or perforation of the ear-drum.
