What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)?
HBOT is a non-invasive medical treatment that increases the volume of dissolved oxygen in the blood plasma.
The patient enters the hyperbaric chamber and through a mask breathes high concentrations of oxygen at a pressure higher than normal atmospheric.
This creates a state of hyperoxia.
Hyperoxia is a significant increase in the availability of
oxygen in the blood plasma. It promotes cellular metabolism and allows oxygen to reach the brain, cartilage, bones, and tissues that, due to various circulatory disorders, do not receive it properly.
