Hyperbaric for your patients information


Why Refer Patients for HBOT?

Most often prescribed in combination with other modes of therapy, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is capable of safely delivering 100% pure oxygen to tissues in the body where blood vessels can barely or not get to, due to the atmospheric pressure inside the chamber.

HBOT is useful in a variety of clinical situations and provides immediate help to ischemic and compromised tissue even with marginal blood flow.

Hyperoxygenation of the tissues also enhances the killing of bacteria and is critical in curing deep seated, resistant infections.

HBOT vasoconstricts the small vessels in the body, especially in injured tissues. This decreases edema and is important in the treatment of burns, crush injuries and injured tissues in general.
