Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a treatment in which patients breathe 100% oxygen while inside a hyperbaric chamber. A hyperbaric chamber is a pressurised room where oxygen can be delivered at high levels. Hyperbaric chambers are made of steel or clear acrylic, and they are designed with a door that locks from the inside.

During oxygen therapy, you will breathe high levels of oxygen while you rest in the hyperbaric chamber. Breathing pure oxygen will help your body heal by:

  • Reducing swelling
  • Increasing the production of collagen
  • Stimulating the growth of new blood vessels
  • Killing bacteria

  • The high concentration of oxygen helps to promote healing by increasing the amount of oxygen that gets delivered to the tissues. If you’d like to learn more about how therapy in our hyperbaric oxygen chambers can help you reach your health and wellness goals, please contact us today to book an appointment with one of our experienced professionals.

    Benefits of Oxygen Therapy

    Hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatment has been shown to be effective in treating a variety of health conditions, including:
    • Wounds that are slow to heal: This includes diabetic wounds such as diabetic foot ulcers and pressure sores.
    • Burns: This includes both thermal and chemical burns.
    • Bone infections (osteomyelitis): This condition is characterised by infection in the bone or the tissue surrounding it.
    • Skin grafts and flaps: Skin grafts are a type of surgery in which skin is removed from one area of the body and transplanted to another.
    • Radiation tissue damage: This can occur when you have radiation injury from radiation therapy as part of cancer treatment.
    • Infections: This includes soft tissue infections, carbon monoxide poisoning and gas gangrene.
    • Serious blood vessel (arterial) disorders: This includes arterial aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations.
    • Carbon monoxide poisoning: Oxygen therapy is the first line of defence to treat carbon monoxide poisoning as it can provide an effective intervention in eliminating carbon monoxide in the bloodstream.
    • Decompression sickness: This is a condition that can occur when scuba diving. Oftentimes, this results in air or gas embolism and other similar diving injuries.
    • Traumatic brain injury: This includes the recovery process for concussions and skull fractures.
    • Heart disease and other cardiovascular conditions: Improved oxygenation from oxygen therapy can help prevent or reduce the occurrence of heart attacks, strokes, and transient ischemic attacks.
    • Cerebral palsy: This is a movement disorder that can often be improved with oxygen therapy.
    • Chronic fatigue syndrome: This is a condition characterised by extreme tiredness that doesn’t improve with rest.
    • Type 2 diabetes: Oxygen therapy is particularly useful in combination with blood plasma therapy to treat low blood sugar.

    Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatments For Damaged Tissue

    Hyperbaric oxygen treatments are great in accelerating the healing of damaged tissue. This can be from an injury or even chronic wounds. Hyperbaric chambers oxygenate the blood, which then saturates the tissues with oxygen. The extra oxygen helps to:

  • Reduce inflammation and swelling
  • Promote increased production of collagen
  • Increase growth of red blood cells
  • Destroy bacteria and speed up wound healing

  • As the oxygen is delivered under pressure, it can reach areas of your body that would normally be deprived of oxygen due to injury or illness. Furthermore, hyperbaric oxygen treatments are non-invasive and have very few side effects. The most common side effect is ear pain due to the change in air pressure. This can be relieved by equalising the pressure in your ears, similar to what you would do when descending in an aeroplane.
