Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy which involves usage of oxygen at a higher atmospheric pressure is recommended by medical experts to treat air embolism. The therapy which helps drastically enhance partial pressure in blood is mostly attained by using these hyperbaric chambers. An individual undergoing the treatment has to enter the enclosure which is completely designed to administer oxygen therapy. The effect of HBOT treatment is observed, as the oxygen supply in the blood increases. At normal atmospheric pressure the oxygen supply is restricted and the plasma is hardly able to feed the organs with adequate O2.
HBOT helps stimulate the oxygen flow through plasma. The therapeutic practice is recognized by the leading hospitals across the US and other parts of the world. The traditional methods make use of hard shelled vessels. Today these hard coated vessels are replaced by soft ones made of acrylic. These chambers are portable and compact. Individuals who have developed bubbles in their tissues are administered with HBOT treatments. The chamber is effective in curing decompression sickness. The tissues which may have developed nitrogen gas are cleansed with pure oxygen which the body reabsorbs. Each hyperbaric session is termed as dive; and in an average an individual may require around 20-40 dives. The mild HBOT vessels are typically designed to administer oxygen supply at home. Clinics also make use of such hyperbaric chambers to treat individuals requiring a milder dose of oxygen.
