Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy(HBOT) is a non invasive procedure during which patients breathe 100% oxygen while enclosed in a specially designed chamber at pressures up to three times that exerted by the normal atmosphere.
Red blood cells travel throughout your body, carrying necessary nutrients and gases to all the tissues and organs. One of the gases they carry is oxygen, which your body uses to maintain healthy tissues and repair damaged ones.
Inside the chamber, you receive 100 percent oxygen under more than 1ATA Atmosphere pressure which can be increased to 2 to 3 ATA Safely. More the pressure, more the oxygen that gets dissolved in the plasma of blood. Normally, the plasma at 1ATA pressure doesn’t carry O2 in the air that contains less than 21% O2, however, in HBOT, it does due to breathing of 100% under increased pressure at 1.5ATA to 3ATA. All you need to do is lie on a bed or sit in the chamber & relax while breathing in the oxygen. Your treatment session usually last 90 mins.
You may need multiple sessions depending on your condition. Some of the conditions where HBOT is indicated are given below
|Retinal A Occlusion
|Non Healing Ulcers
|Traumatic brain injury
|Post Radio problems
|Sudden Hearing Loss
Speech & Hearing specialists
|Recurrent oral ulcers
You may need multiple sessions of HBO therapy for it to be effective. It’s often SUPPLEMENTARY to the other Mainstream treatments. Your treatment plan and results will vary, depending on your specific condition. For example, if you have a wound that hasn’t been healing as fast as it should or not healing at all, your doctor may recommend HBO therapy along with other treatments, such as wound care, bandaging, and antibiotics. Your wound may require 25 to 30 sessions of HBO therapy before it fully heals.
Inhalation of poisonous gases often requires fewer HBO therapy sessions than slow-healing wounds. For example, a single, significant exposure to carbon monoxide will require only one session of HBO therapy. Additionally, people who experience decompression sickness, or the bends, usually will only require one session to improve their symptoms significantly. In general, the more chronic the medical condition, the more sessions of HBO are required to achieve the effect.
