How It Works
The term "Hyperbaric" originates from the Greek language, with "hyper" meaning more and "baric" referring to pressure. In essence, it signifies "increased pressure." Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) enhances the oxygen levels in all organs, tissues, and bodily fluids. The chamber's pressure enables oxygen molecules to reach compromised tissues three to four times further than when diffused by red blood cells under normal conditions.
Breathing 100% pure oxygen outside the chamber does not significantly enhance a patient's healing capabilities. However, within the chamber, the heightened pressure causes the blood plasma and other bodily fluids to absorb larger quantities of oxygen, resulting in a substantial increase in oxygen uptake by cells, tissues, glands, organs, brain, and all body fluids. To illustrate, once inside the pressurized chamber at 2.0 atmospheres, oxygen is delivered to the patient's tissues twenty times faster than when breathing regular air. This oxygen can then be utilized by the body for crucial healing-related functions.
