Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment (HBOT) most commonly refers to the delivery of increased levels of oxygen at greater than ambient pressure for a prescribed duration of usually 60 to 90 minutes in an, specially designed enclosed chamber.
This process causes oxygen to be absorbed by all body fluids and by all body cells and tissues, even those with blocked or reduced blood flow.
This increased flow of oxygen stimulates and restores function to damaged cells and organs.
HBOT is a simple, non-invasive and painless treatment which most patients find comfortable and relaxing. You will be treated in a secure and comfortable purpose built chamber with a trained operator present to operate the barochamber. In certain circumstances the attendant will accompany clients into the chamber. There has been no recorded case of a patient suffering either a heart attack or a stroke undergoing hyperbaric oxygen treatment, and oxygen under hyperbaric conditions can be used as a treatment of both conditions.
