Hyperbaric Oxygen

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a medical treatment which enhances the body’s natural healing process by inhalation of 100% oxygen in a total body chamber, where atmospheric pressure is increased and controlled. It is used for a wide variety of treatments usually as a part of an overall medical care plan. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a medical treatment involving the use of oxygen under increased atmospheric pressure. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a specialized therapy that uses an increase in atmospheric pressure to allow the body to incorporate more oxygen into blood cells, blood plasma, cerebral-spinal fluid, and other body fluids. Under normal circumstances, oxygen is transported throughout the body only by red blood cells. Under normal atmospheric pressure, oxygen transport is limited by the oxygen binding capacity of hemoglobin in red blood cells while very little oxygen is transported by blood plasma. With HBOT, oxygen is dissolved into all of the body’s fluids, the plasma, the central nervous system fluids, the lymph, and the bone and can be carried to areas where circulation is diminished or blocked. In this way, extra oxygen can reach all of the damaged tissues and the body can support its own healing process. The increased oxygen greatly enhances the ability of white blood cells to kill bacteria, and reduce swelling and inflammation, therefore allowing new blood vessels to grow more rapidly into the affected areas to repaire damaged tissues. It is a simple, non-invasive and painless treatment.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is used to treat all conditions which benefit from increased tissue oxygen availability. Currently the indications for benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy are expanding. There are over 100 diagnoses world-wide that are improved by use of this therapy. It has been shown that adults as well as children with these diagnostics show tremendous improvement in healing, function, and cognitive processes.

Clinical studies have demonstrated the benefits of HBOT for the following conditions/treatments:

Surgery Recovery Support

  • Supports the Increase Fibroblast Activation
  • May Reduce Inflammation for Optimal Pre-Op Conditions
  • May Decrease Hospital Time
  • May Reduce Risk of Infection

Neurology

Approximately 1 billion people, of all ages, are currently affected by neurological disorders, with an estimated 6.8 million deaths that occur every year world-wide. This staggering statistical evidence illustrates the substantial impact of neurological disorders throughout the world. New evidence presents how hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is helping individuals regain neurological activity and functionality. For neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders, in addition to neurological injuries, HBOT provides the brain with increased levels of oxygen to help recover/repair brain tissue, proliferate the creation of new brain cells and improve cognitive functioning.

Improve Neurological Conditions

  • Neurodevelopmental Conditions (Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Fetal Alcohol, Syndrome)
  • Neurological Injuries (Stroke, Traumatic Brain & Spinal Cord Injuries, Concussions)
  • Neurodegenerative Conditions (Alzheimer’s , Parkinson’s, Huntington’s Disease

Improve Brain Function, Performance, Repair & Recovery

  • Increases Circulatory Pathways in the Brain
  • Enhance Memory and Mental Performance
  • Improves Oxygenation to the Brain
  • Recovers & Repairs Damaged Brain Tissue
  • Develops & Regains Cognitive/Motor Functions

Attenuate Nervous System Inflammation

  • Reduces Brain Swelling
  • Decreases Pressure within the Skull
  • Reduces Risk of Compromised Blood Flow to the Brain
  • Minimizes Oxidative Stress

Increase Regeneration of the Nervous System

  • Stimulates the Creation of New Brain Cells
  • Facilitates the Formation of New Brain Connections
  • Promotes the Construction of New Brain Tissue

Stroke

Stroke is the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S. and has remained a leading cause of adult disability with 800,000 cases reported every year. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has been shown to help prevent and treat stroke through a number of different mechanisms. HBOT can be used to precondition the brain by producing more circulatory pathways to potentially decrease the chance of stroke. Also, this has been shown to benefit post-stroke patients, as compromised blood flow to the affected area of the brain and its functionality are recoverable by introducing increased levels of oxygen.

Prevention

  • May Stimulate the Creation of New Blood Vessels
  • May Decrease Oxidative Stress in the Brain
  • Supports the Promotion of Optimal Blood Flow
  • Preconditions the Brain to Enable Neuroprotective Properties

  • May Accelerate Gross/Fine Motor Skills Recovery
  • May Stimulates the Creation of Blood Vessels to Reclaim Damaged Brain Tissue
  • May Escalate the Creation of New Brain Connections

Anti-Aging

Age-related diseases are a growing concern world-wide. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has been shown, in some studies, to help combat degeneration by contributing to the regeneration of tissue and blood vessels. HBOT stimulates the development of new blood vessels in areas of the body where circulation is compromised and is utilized by some physicians to help treat Coronary Heart Disease, Macular Degeneration, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, Arthritis and immune related diseases. Additionally, HBOT helps promote collagen activation to help battle the signs of aging including skin damage and elasticity. Clinical studies have demonstrated the benefits of HBOT for age-related degenerative conditions by providing cellular aid to all organs in the body to promote health and beauty.

Sports

Injuries caused by sports-related activities are a substantial concern among players, coaches and parents alike. As inflammation and pain play primary roles with respect to recovery, hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has been shown to significantly reduce inflammation and ameliorate pain. Additionally, HBOT can promote fibroblast/collagen activity to accelerate and enhance healing from surgeries and wounds. New evidence supports HBOT as an adjunct and practical treatment to help moderate the effects of traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and enhance SPECT imaging results. HBOT is often utilized by physicians and individuals to help reach a full recovery from high-impact insults to the body and is currently used by some of the U.S. Olympic Teams to treat sports-related injuries as a part of their official medical techniques and equipment.
