Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

HBOT
INTRODUCTION TO HYPERBARIC OXYGEN THERAPY (HBOT)

What is a HBOT?

Our body’s tissues need oxygen to function. The air we breathe is 21% oxygen. HBOT involves breathing 100% (pure) oxygen while in a special space called a hyperbaric chamber. The air pressure inside is raised to a level that is higher than normal air pressure. The increased air pressure in the chamber helps the lungs collect more oxygen. Getting more oxygen to the tissues that need it, can help the body heal.

What does HBOT treat?

Potentially ,HBOT can be used for any condition that involves injury, wounding, loss of blood supply, or inflammation. The following are some of the most common conditions and injuries that treats with oxygen therapy.
•Autism
•Cerebral Palsy
•Drowning and Anoxic Brain Injury
•Migraine Headache
•Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) and Dementia
•Multiple Sclerosis
•Plastic-Cosmetic Surgery
•Recovery from Surgery
•Sports Injuries and Sports Performance/Recovery
•Stroke
•Traumatic Brain Injury
•And many more.

Even if the condition or injury that you or a loved one is suffering from is not listed here, it does not mean that it is not responsive to HBOT or that we cannot successfully treat you with hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Diseases that are like those diseases that are typically treated with HBOT are also very often responsive to HBOT.

How long are treatments?

The duration of treatment varies from 45 to 120 minutes per session.

How should I feel after each treatment session? 

You may feel somewhat tired or hungry following your treatment. This will not limit your normal activities. Keep hydrated following your hyperbaric oxygen therapy appointment.

Is HBOT safe?

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is generally a safe procedure. Complications are rare, but this treatment does carry some risk. 

Potential risks include:

•Middle ear injuries, including leaking fluid and eardrum rupture, due to changes in air pressure

•Temporary nearsightedness (myopia) caused by temporary eye lens changes

•Lowered blood sugar in people who have diabetes treated with insulin

How should I prepare for my sessions?

1. Pleasegotothebathroombeforeyourtreatment.

2. You will need to remove all shoes and jewelry before treatment.

3. The office would ask you to remove all odors from your body. Unfortunately, odors tend to linger in the chamber and may be unpleasant for the patient following your treatment. Please remove any scented lotions ,perfume, cologne, hairspray, hairproducts, fresh nail polish, fresh acrylic nails, bodyodor, and food odor

.4. Please wear comfortable clothes for your treatment. 

How many sessions do I need?

To benefit from hyperbaric oxygen therapy, you'll likely need more than one session. The number of sessions is dependent upon your medical condition. Some conditions, such as carbon monoxide poisoning, might be treated in three visits. The average injury requires 40 sessions, but an injury like a non-healing wound may need more. To effectively treat certain medical conditions, hyperbaric oxygen therapy is usually part of a comprehensive treatment plan provided with other therapies that are designed to fit your individual needs.
