Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
For many healthcare facilities, a Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy program is at the core of patient care. Midwest Hyperbaric’s connection to state-of-the-art hyperbaric chambers from Sechrist offers numerous advantages to physicians, surgeons, and patients. Combined with our consultation services, we help facilities develop comprehensive solutions for optimal wound care.
What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a non-invasive, painless mode of therapy.
A patient receiving HBOT breathes 100% oxygen, at a pressure greater than sea level, while in an enclosed pressure vessel. This results in a dramatic elevation of oxygen in the blood, tissue, and body fluids. HBOT can result in blood oxygen levels 15 times greater than blood oxygen levels in normobaric conditions.
The pressure at which a patient is treated is determined by the treatment protocol and physician’s diagnosis. Treatment protocols have been established by the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society for each of the indication.
What are The Benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy improves the quality of life of the patient in many areas when standard medicine is not working.
Many areas of the body cannot heal without proper oxygen levels in the tissue. Most illnesses and injuries occur at the cellular or tissue level. In many cases, oxygen cannot reach the damaged area and the body is unable to naturally heal properly. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy provides this extra oxygen naturally and with minimal side effects.
What Conditions does HBOT Help?
Hyperbaric oxygen is used to treats conditions which benefit from increased tissue oxygen availability, as well as infections where it can be used for its antibiotic properties, either as the primary therapy, or in conjunction with other drugs.
