Harnessing the healing power of hyperbaric O2

Key Treatment Focuses

How Hyperbaric therapy works

Tissue Repair occurs through seemingly magical yet precise sets of processes and rules which usually work flawlessly. The various phases of these regenerative processes require oxygen as an integral part. Hyperbaric oxygen raises the oxygen concentration in a person's blood, and subsequently in the tissues in the areas that need to be healed.

As in all therapies - not all outcomes are equally favorable. In a small percentage of those who receive radiotherapy, the tissue response is accentuated and damage to normal tissue occurs. The unpleasant effects usually settle post irradiation, these effect can be eased by Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.

Sudden hearing loss (SHL) is defined as greater than 30 dB hearing reduction, over at least three contiguous frequencies, occurring over a period of 72 hours or less. The condition may appear instantaneously or develop rapidly over a period of a few hours or days. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy provides the chance to restore hearing to patients.

It is estimated that about 15% to 25% of people with diabetes develop a foot ulcer in their lifetime. These wounds are often resistant to treatment and difficult to heal; therefore, people with diabetes experience lower limb amputation at about 20 times the rate of people without diabetes. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy can improve this healing process, saving limbs.
