Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy in Cambridge, OH

Understanding Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is used primarily as a treatment for decompression sickness. It can also be used to treat other conditions such as high blood oxygen or conditions that the body is not prepared to fight.

In this treatment, patients breathe pure oxygen in a pressurized environment. This environment is often either a chamber designed for a single person or a room designed to accommodate multiple patients. The increased oxygen helps fight bacterial infection and stimulates the body’s natural healing process.

What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Used to Treat?

Individual results may vary.

  • Burns
  • Infections
  • Brain abscess
  • Gangrene
  • Anemia
  • Arterial gas embolism
  • Sudden loss of vision or hearing

Hyperbaric chambers are widely used to treat decompression sickness and excess nitrogen in the blood. In some cases, this is done not in therapy sessions but more often as one or two isolated treatments.

Risks

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy carries certain risks. Injuries to the eyes or ears, lung collapse, and seizures have been observed from time to time. However, none of these results are typical. Bringing any flammable items into the hyperbaric chamber increases the risk of fires as the increased oxygen makes the environment highly flammable.

Multiple sessions are often needed to treat a condition using hyperbaric oxygen therapy fully. The number of sessions required typically increases with the severity of the condition treated. The therapy is also used as a valuable supplement to other treatments. Request more information about hyperbaric oxygen therapy today.
