What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy – A brief summary:
In this process 100% oxygen is pressurized in a chamber to treat the patients. Patient is asked to lay onto a cot inside the chamber; gradually the pressure is increased up to a certain point; the peak pressure is maintained for an hour or so and then it is released gradually. Hyperbaric therapy can be compared with scuba diving!
The chambers are generally equipped with TV sets, telephone handset etc. to make the session comfortable – the only reason of discomfort is the effect of increased pressure in the ears!
