QUESTIONS

What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)?

HBOT involves breathing almost 100% pure oxygen in a pressurized environment.  This allows for your blood to carry this extra oxygen throughout your body to help stimulate the release of growth factors and stem cells which promote healing.

Is HBOT safe?

Whether using a hospital grade high pressure chamber or a mild chamber, each pose their own risk.   Being informed on how to operate your mild chamber is very important and will reduce any risk significantly.  Generally HBOT is safe when being used for the intended purposes set forth by the FDA and in accordance with their guidelines.

The number of treatments that is right for you will depend on your unique situation.  For example three sessions a week at 60 minutes per session is suitable for some and others do well with five sessions a week.  These are not highly pressurized hospital chambers and therefore the treatment or maintenance period is different.  (See What is the difference between a Soft chamber and a Hard Chamber)
