All About Multiplace HBOT Chambers

Compared to monoplace HBOT chambers, a multiplace chamber for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is designed to accommodate more than one patient during an ongoing period of therapy. Such chambers are designed to withstand high internal pressures, even those cases in which it is raised up to 6 ATA, as the higher the level of pressure, the better are the chances of health improvement and recovery. The design, capacity and size of these chambers vary from facility to facility as every treatment center customizes the design according to the specific needs of…

Effectiveness of HBOT Therapy in Relieving Pain

HBOT therapy is not a newest addition to the field of medical science but today, it is hailed as an integral part of medical therapy. Although it is mainly administered to take care of respiratory and cardiovascular systems, but medical researches have shown many evidences that attest to the fact that this therapy can render useful service to improve the symptoms of chronic painful syndromes. HBOT therapy involves the intake of 100% pure unadulterated oxygen at a pressure which is equivalent to the pressure 16-25 feet below the sea level….

Oxygen Therapy in Hyperbaric Chambers can cure Thermal Burns

Thermal burns are severe problems where the tissues undergo multifactorial injuries resulting in hypoxia, edema and susceptibility to serious infections.  Thermal burns occur due to reduced functionality of the white cells. Such conditions are treated with the help of oxygen therapy. The pathophysiological derangement conditions are efficiently treated with HBOT. After a few dives in the Hyperbaric Chambers, the patients experience a significant difference in their health conditions. After researching on the same, experts have concluded that there can’t be a better solution than this. A randomized study has proved…

Acute & Chronic Conditions treated by Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) applications can be broadly divided into two categories, emergency conditions (acute) and chronic conditions. The emergency applications take advantage of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy’s (HBOT’s) ability to stop inflammation, infection, and tissue destruction and oxygenate tissues that are starved for oxygen. Acute Conditions These acute conditions include decompression sickness (“the bends”), air embolism (air in the arteries of the body due to a rupture of the lungs in diving or accidental injection of air during medical procedures), carbon monoxide poisoning, burns, the flesh-eating bacteria, gas gangrene (occurs…

Advantages Of Taking HBOT Treatment in hyperbaric chambers

Following are the various advantages of  hyperbaric chamber therapy or HBOT. Biochemical Improvement HBOT helps to reduce excess concentrations of lactate, pyruvate, and ammonia, particularly in older people, which are detrimental to fitness and contribute to fatigue. Exercise typically causes significant increase in these substances. Increase of capacity for strenuous exercise HBOT allows for this ability during rehab, this is of great importance in the rehabilitation heart disease patients, for the treatment of mild hypertension and for lowering blood lipids. HBOT’s role in Stroke Rehabilitation Activates dormant neurons in the…

Types of Hyperbaric Chambers and HBOT Therapies

What do Hyperbaric Chambers and Therapies involve? HBOT can be done in single-person chambers or chambers that can hold more than a dozen people at a time. A single-person chamber, or monoplace, consists of a clear plastic tube about seven feet long. The patient lies on a padded table that slides into the tube. The hyperbaric chamber is gradually pressurized with pure oxygen. Patients are asked to relax and breathe normally during treatment. Chamber pressures typically rise to 2.5 times the normal atmospheric pressure. Patients may experience ear popping or…
