what is hyperbaric oxygen therapy?
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a treatment used to increase the amount of oxygen reaching the bodies' cells. It is administered by a patient spending time in a hyperbaric chamber and breathing pure oxygen (pressure above sea level 1 atmospheric pressure)—the same sort of chamber as used to treat scuba divers suffering from the benz.
HBOT can be used as part of an integrated approach to patient care or it can be used as the sole treatment for a variety of conditions.
The use of HBOT is widely recognised throughout the world to assist in an array of conditions. Depending on the condition the HBOT is being used to support, the patient will be exposed to atmospheric of 1.5 and above.
not all Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy is created equal
Different illness require different treatment pressures. The "one size fits all" just isn't so in a hyperbaric chamber because there is a distinct drug-dose response by the patient.
To fully benefit the therapeutic effect of HBOT, pressure above 1.5 ATA is needed. Naturally and logically the cost of hard chambers is more expensive than soft chambers.
Different illnesses require different treatment pressures. The "one size fits all" just is not so in a hyperbaric chamber because there is a distinct drug-dose response by the patient. In a hospital HBOT chamber, gas gangrene is treated at 29 psig (3 ATA) of 100% oxygen. This provides the patient almost 16 times the partial pressure of oxygen of breathing room air at sea level. Diabetic ulcers respond to 19 psig (2.3 ATA) and heal quickly. Lyme disease and chronic fatigue syndrome patients need 2-2.3 ATA pressures to achieve a positive result. The inflatable chambers fail to deliver both the required treatment pressure and oxygen percentages for these health problems.The inflatable is pressurized to a mere 4 pounds per square inch (“psig.”) or 1.5 ATA ,by adding 4 psig air pressure, the oxygen density (partial pressure) jump from 21% to 27%. Most neurological and orthopedic conditions including autism respond best to pressures between 1.7 to 2.0 ATA .
