What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a medical treatment that is used to treat a wide variety of medical conditions using the high levels of oxygen that can be achieved only under pressure. Most Hyperbaric treatments are the administration of 100% oxygen at pressure greater than sea level, usually the equivalent of 30-40 feet under water. Using HBOT, oxygen is dissolved in the blood stream in much higher concentration than at sea level pressures. The oxygen enriched blood can provide oxygen to deprived tissues allowing then for proper function.
