Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy has existed in the era of science for a long, but it has gained fame in the recent decade due to its countless benefits. It came as a medical device for hospital use but now can be seen in gyms, spas, and wellness centers. It is now available in portable design, making it easier for users to keep one in their homes. This easy-to-use hyperbaric oxygen chamber can be used in sessions to eradicate and treat several medical issues.
- THE WORKING PHENOMENON OF HBOT
Oxygenation of the cellular matrix is the key to having a healthy body. The body’s normal functioning requires adequate oxygen supply, and Hbot ensures how to do it the right way. The hyperbaric chambers provide pure oxygen supply in the air pressure higher than the average. This process pushes rich oxygen deep into the body’s cellular environment to promote tissue functioning and healing.
- HBOT FOR THE TREATMENT OF VARIOUS MEDICAL ISSUES
Hbot has exhibited exceptional results over the time being; therefore, it is now considered a reliable source to treat and prevent human lives from various health problems. This oxygen therapy is effortless, and one can move toward healthy living in just a few sessions. The time and sessions depend upon the extent of the disorder as well as the recommendations of the medical experts.
There are so many health issues that hyperbaric oxygen therapy can heal; however, some of the major ones are highlighted in this article:
|TREATMENT VIA HYPERBARIC OXYGEN THERAPY|
|Brain injury||Stroke||Crushing injury|
|Autism||Carbon monoxide poisoning||Radiation injury|
|Blood loss anemia||Diabetic wounds||Tissue death|
- HBOT FOR SKIN BURNS
When the skin burns, that specific area becomes hypoxic (oxygen deprived). This oxygen-deficient environment causes that area to heal very slowly. Oxygen promotes healing, and Hbot is the safest way to do it. It helps to provide oxygen in a more pressurized condition resulting in rapid recovery.
- HBOT FOR DIABETES
Diabetes is a chronic disease that is not only associated with blood glucose but also with the immune and healing processes. With time, diabetes can affect blood circulation to the limbs, which ultimately delays healing time. This hypoxic condition can be recovered by the hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which provides extra oxygen to the limbs, enhances perfusion, and prevents edema.
- HBOT FOR AUTISM
Autism is a neurodegenerative disease that causes disturbed developmental behavior. There’s a reduction in cerebral perfusion and an increase in inflammation and oxidative stress in autistic patients. Hbot helps to provide higher oxygen levels to the brain for better cerebral perfusion. This higher oxygen concentration also flows throughout the body in the form of oxygenated blood and reduces oxidative stress and inflammation.
- HBOT FOR RADIATION INJURY
Radiation therapy treats various issues like tumors in the body. The radiation targets a specific area, but some surrounding tissues also get affected. This tissue damage shows symptoms over the time of months or years. However, this issue can be resolved with the help of Hbot, which increases oxygen diffusion in the blood vessels for rapid healing.
- HBOT FOR CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING
We know that hemoglobin in blood is responsible for carrying oxygen in the body. During carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning, the CO binds with hemoglobin with a higher affinity than oxygen. This excess binding causes hypoxia in the body tissues and can also cause difficulty in breathing. Hbot is a reliable and quick method to remove carbon monoxide entirely from the body and oxygenate the body tissues in such severe conditions.
- HBOT FOR BRAIN INJURIES AND STROKE
A brain injury can cause permanent or temporary damage to the brain cells as well as the intellectual capabilities or physical functions of the person experiencing it. Hbot has a pressurized oxidation mechanism which helps in cellular oxygenation of the damaged brain cells. It helps to reduce swelling and inflammation during brain stroke. It also provides neuroprotection and neurogenesis (neuron production).
- HBOT FOR BLOOD LOSS ANEMIA
Hemoglobin present in red-blood cells is responsible for carrying oxygen throughout the body. In anemic patients, the level of hemoglobin decreases which ultimately causes oxygen drop in the body. Hbot is very useful therapy in such blood deprived conditions to fullfil oxygen needs. It is also very helpful to oxygenate tissues when blood transfusions cannot be carried out. The effect of Hbot in anemic patients is very short-lived, and should be carried out in repeated daily sessions for proper tissue oxygenation.
- HBOT FOR DEPRESSION
Depression is a very common medical-illness today and it causes negative effects on the mood of the person facing it. The hyperbaric oxygen therapy is not directly related to cure depression or anxiety but it somehow has indirect effects on the body of the patient. This therapy works side by side with the pshycotheraphy and brings improvement in nerve functions and daily activities. The higher percentage of oxygen helps to provide efficient cellular metabolic energy for normal brain activity and mood stabalization.
- HBOT FOR CRUSH INJURY
Crush injury is caused by a direct crushing force that causes increase tissue pressure and multiple tissues to rupture. This pressure leads to severe edema and inflammation within the tissue which cuts down the perfusion process. In such severe cases, Hbot plays a significant role to increase tissue oxygenation and perfusion in the pressurized areas as well as the peripheral areas where oxygen cannot be carried due to the crushing.
- HBOT FOR AIR EMBOLISM
Gas embolism is induced in the vascular system during medical procedures and fluid administration. Air bubbles in the blood vessels cause disruption in the blood flow even in the areas supplied by those vessels. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy provides high pressure to reduce the size of the emboli as well as to supply oxygen to the peripheral vessels.
