WHAT IS HYPERBARIC OXYGEN THERAPY

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 a, 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.

ADVANTAGES OF HYPERBARIC OXYGEN THERAPY

  • Increases O2 concentration
    Reverse hypoxia
    Assist healing
  • Restores neutrophil's
    Promotes angiogenesis
    Reduces any swelling
  • Reduce pain
    Reduces Inflammation
    Helps body to clear toxins

How oxygen is administered under pressure?

1. How safe is the treatment ?

HBOT is a simple, non-invasive and painless treatment which most patients find it comfortable and relaxing.

The treatment is performed in a large chamber (decompression chamber), which resembles a large airplane cabin. The patient enters the inside of the chamber, sitting in a comfortable armchair. and inhaling oxygen under pressure through a special mask If the patient's condition requires it, treatment can also be performed on wheelchairs or wheelchairs.

The first few minutes of the dive will be quite noisy, due to the pressurised air entering the chamber. It will seem warm at first and then the temperature will be adjusted to a comfortable level. You will feel the change in pressure in your ears, similar to that when descending in an aircraft. With effective equalisation, as coached by the nurse present, you will not have any discomfort. At the end of the treatment, the chamber pressure is reduced to usual atmospheric pressure and the air will feel colder. You will feel your ears "popping" during this phase

The duration of treatment depends on the type of therapeutic regimens depending on the incident and its severity.
In most cases the treatment is given 5 times a week and lasts from 1 to 1.5 hours.
The total number of treatments depends on the type of incident and the patient's response to treatment.

Side effects are uncommon. They relate to the increase in pressure (ear or lung barotrauma) or the use of increased amounts of oxygen (CNS or lung oxygen toxicity). Some patients may also experience visual changes that cause them to become more near-sighted (myopia); this is usually temporary and should disappear within 3-4 months of ceasing therapy. Your doctor will discuss these prior to your commencing treatment and at any time you are concerned.
