Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy –
Originally used as a treatment for scuba divers suffering from decompression sickness, hyperbaric oxygen therapy involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized chamber. By increasing air pressure inside a hyperbaric oxygen therapy chamber to three times higher than that of normal air pressure, lungs fill with extra air and the oxygen is distributed throughout your body via your blood.
Hyperbaric Chamber Treatments –
Wound Healing, Infections
The extra oxygen works to fight off bacteria. It also aids healing by stimulating the release of growth factor substances and stem cells. Many serious infections and slow-healing wounds caused by radiation therapy and diabetes are treated with hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Chamber Benefits
Wounded tissue requires higher oxygen levels if it is to fight infection and heal. By increasing the amount of oxygen your blood is carrying, a hyperbaric oxygen chamber gives your body a boost for the wounded tissue to repair.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Side Effects
As successful and nonintrusive as hyperbaric oxygen therapy is, here are the risks you may encounter:
- The increased oxygen levels can lead to a temporary change in the lenses of your eyes, causing brief near-sightedness.
- People with sensitive ear drums may experience middle ear injuries due to the increased air pressure.
- The change in the air pressure may lead to the collapse of your lung.
- Too much of a good thing, i.e. oxygen, could lead to oxygen toxicity of your central nervous system and this may result in seizures.
