HBOT Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a supply of an increased amount of oxygen into tissues and organs. During the HBOT in a hyperbaric chamber, patients breathe pure oxygen under the increased pressure (more than 1 ATA). Oxygen is transported by the body’s red blood cells. During the hyperbaric oxygen therapy the oxygen is dissolved in all body fluids, reaching even to ischemic tissues and organs. Hyperbaric oxygen enhances the natural defence processes and regeneration of our body. Moreover, the formation of new blood vessels can reduce areas of damage and necrosis.
It is non-invasive and completely painless treatment!
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy:
– reduces the area of damage and necrosis
– accelerates wound healing and reduce the swelling of the tissue
– stimulates collagen synthesis
– supports the immune mechanisms
– reacts bactericidal and bacteriostatic
The process of treatment in a hyperbaric chamber.
Our patients during Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy in a hyperbaric chamber breathe pure oxygen under the pressure of 1,8-3,0 ATA. Treatment lasts approximately 90 minutes. Three sessions of oxygen therapy, each of them lasts approximately 20 minutes (100% of oxygen), are followed by 5-minute breaks. Patients attend approximately 30 treatments. Pure hyperbaric oxygen is administrated through airtight facial mask or hoods with rubber collars. According to the highest safety standards it allows to keep the oxygen concentration in a chamber under acceptable, safe level of 23%. During hyperbaric oxygen therapy in our 12-seat chamber patients are together with an attendant: it could be a hyperbaric nurse or paramedic. The process of therapy is supervised by a hyperbaric doctor.
