Hyperbaric medicine is medical treatment in which an ambient pressure greater than sea level atmospheric pressure is a necessary component. The treatment comprises hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), the medical use of oxygen at an ambient pressure higher than atmospheric pressure, and therapeutic recompression for decompression illness, intended to reduce the injurious effects of systemic gas bubbles by physically reducing their size and providing improved conditions for elimination of bubbles and excess dissolved gas.
Scientific research has firmly established the benefits of hyperbaric chamber oxygen therapy, and have affirmed that it is a valuable treatment for patients experiencing a wide range of problems.
The true science of HBOT reveals impressive hyperbaric chamber benefits to the body.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy can be applied in the following Diagnoses:
– Diabetic Pressure Ulcers
– Crush Injuries
– Failing Skin Grafts
– Chronic Osteomyelitis (bone infections)
– Osteoradionecrosis of the Jaw (complication of radiation to oral cancers)
– Soft Tissue Radiation Injuries (complication of radiation to skin cancer, prostate, bladder and colon)
