Hyperbaric oxygen therapy involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized chamber. This therapy is a reliable treatment for decompression sickness, a hazard of scuba diving. Various other conditions are also treated with hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which include bubbles of air in blood vessels, serious infections, wounds that don’t heal easily like in diabetes and radiation injury.
Being Healthy Nutrition provides patients with hyperbaric therapy in Edmonton. In the pressure chamber, the oxygen pressure is increased to three times higher than normal air pressure. Under these conditions, lungs gather more oxygen than one can breathe under normal atmospheric pressure. Blood carries this excess oxygen throughout the body, which aids in fighting bacterial infections and stimulates the release of substances known as growth factor and stem cells to promote healing. All in all, the therapy has impressive healing capabilities.
Body tissues need an adequate supply of oxygen to function normally. In case of any injury, tissues require more oxygen to survive and repair the damages. Therapy provided by us increases the amount of oxygen in the blood. This increase in blood oxygen temporarily restores the level of gases in blood and promotes healing.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is the medical use of oxygen in a pressurized environment, at a level higher than 1 atmosphere absolute (ATA). Increased pressure allows for oxygen to dissolve and saturate the blood plasma (independent of hemoglobin/red blood cells), which yields a broad variety of positive physiological, biochemical and cellular effects. This noninvasive therapy is the most trusted way to increase oxygen levels to all organs of the body. The typical treatment lasts for 60-90 minutes, during which the patient lies down and breathes normally.
