What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a medical treatment given in a comfortable, climate-controlled, see through chamber with a private entertainment system; patients can watch movies or even listen to music.

"Hyperbaric" means more than the normal atmospheric pressure. Most treatments are given at two to three time's normal pressure.

In addition, the normal 21% oxygen in the air we breathe is increased to 100%.

The combination of increased pressure and 100% oxygen significantly increases the amount of oxygen in the bloodstream which provides several benefits including:

Improved wound healing
Improved growth of new blood vessels
Improvement of radiation injuries
Improved control of certain infections including bone infections

If you have a wound, see if you qualify for hyperbaric oxygen therapy?
