The Cost of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a medical treatment that involves delivering oxygen at increased atmospheric pressure to heal injuries to the body. According to Dr. Paul G. Harch, a pioneer and leading authority on hyperbaric oxygen therapy and research, “Oxygen under pressure works as a drug to treat basic disease processes that are common to many acute and chronic conditions. By treating the disease processes the diseases are treated also.” The cost of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is determined largely by where a patient receives Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT), what…

Types of Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers – Monoplace & Multiplace

When a patient is given 100% oxygen under pressure, hemoglobin is saturated, but the blood can be hyperoxygenated by dissolving oxygen within the plasma. The patient can be administered systemic oxygen via 2 basic chambers: Type A, multiplace; and Type B, monoplace. Both types can be used for routine wound care, treatment of most dive injuries, and treatment of patients who are ventilated or in critical care. Multiplace chamber Multiplace Hyperbaric Oxygen chamber treat multiple patients at the same time, generally with a nurse or another inside observer who monitors…

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy : Uses and Restrictions

We have heard that when a deep sea diver comes up too fast from great depths, then gasses dissolved into his blood under pressure start to bubble out of solution, causing air embolus, that causes severe pain and may even cause death. These divers are immediately placed inside a pressure chamber or hyperbaric oxygen chambers where air pressure is kept at deep sea level, and then released slowly to enable gasses to dissolve out harmlessly and out of lungs. These HBOT chambers are now being used therapeutically in Multiple Sclerosis,…

Effects of Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy on persons with Autism.

Jenny McCarthy discusses autism and hyperbarics with Ellen on April 14, 2009. Worldwide, medical researchers are discovering promising results with the effects of hyperbaric therapy on persons with Autism. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is found to be remarkably effective in autism treatment In one study, involving brain functionality and recovery for children with chemical exposures exhibiting PDD disorders, hyperbaric oxygen therapy was found to be remarkably effective. Treatments consisted of 10 sessions in a hyperbaric chamber at 1.3 ATA, for one hour per day, five consecutive days for two weeks. To…

Mechanics behind HBOT – Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment

Hyperbaric chambers are any number of enclosures, which can be pressurized to allow a person inside to experience higher atmospheric pressures than the normal environmental pressures.  For example, a treatment at an elevation of 12,000 feet above sea level using a 4 psi (1.27 ATA) can simulate a decent of ~5,843 feet to 6,157 feet above sea level. At higher elevations, the barometric pressure is lower.  This decrease of pressure also decreases the oxygenation of blood, and is known as anoxia—where molecules of oxygen exert less pressure on the walls…

HBOT Treatment – Can You Carry Anything Into The HBOT Chambers?

In general, nothing can be taken into the monoplace unit. This uses a 100% oxygen environment, and is therefore strictly monitored. Take nothing into the HBOT chamber unless you clear it with the technician. The multiplace HBOT treatment chamber uses air, and so is less stringent. You can take water bottles and some books and magazines into this type of HBOT Treatment chamber. In both chambers, items such as lighters, matches, cigarettes, nylons, wigs, ointments, hearing aids, petroleum jelly, watches, makeup, lipstick, lip balm, hairspray, hair dressings, synthetic fabrics, or…

Technology at Home – Cerebral Palsy (CP) and HBOT Chambers

Excerpt: Train The Brain With Latest Technology by Spencer Feldman Ref: www.cerebralpalsymagazine.com Hyperbaric oxygen treatments, also referred to as HBO or HBOT, have been a controversial topic for many years now. Treatment centers, individuals and studies all vary in their practices and beliefs in reference to the amount of pressure to be utilized, types of chambers, and other topics. So what is the difference? The simple answer is this: Pressure delivered -more is not better, the use of medical grade oxygen, proper training. What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and how,…
