About Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
The range of clinical conditions responding favorably to HBOT is growing rapidly. Many individuals have shown vast improvements with HBOT and the results are generally based on patient treatment outcomes as well as scientific studies. Often times these chronic medical conditions languish in an individual’s life unless the individual requests that HBOT be added to their overall health care program and included in their treatment protocols.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is the use of intermittent, high-dose, oxygen as a drug. By giving pure oxygen in a pressurized chamber, HBOT delivers a massive influx of oxygen — even to areas of poor blood flow — and results in remarkable benefits that cannot be achieved with any other therapy.
Uses of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is effective at healing wounds and, in turn, reducing the risk for amputation, particularly for those who have diabetes. Wounds need oxygen toheal properly, and exposing a wound to 100 percent oxygen can, in many cases, speed the healing process.
The seizure focus may be identified with Magnetic Source Imaging (MSI). On SPECT scan there is reduced blood flow to the area. PET scanning clearly demonstrates a reduced metabolic rate in the same area. Neurologists agree that the seizure focus is hypoxic (low oxygen). Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) grows new blood vessels (angiogenesis) into the seizure focus thereby treating the basic underlying problem.
Think Oxygen, Think Healing
The use of HBOT is becoming increasingly common as a growing body of research and evidence shows it to be beneficial in a wide range of clinical conditions and Care Pathways (TM).
