Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber

Heal, renew and recover. Use oxygen therapy to transform your health and improve your overall well-being. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy offers you the best in oxygen therapies to help treat a wide-range of conditions and prevent decay through concentrated oxygen therapy.

What is Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy in a closed chamber?

Concentrated oxygen to revitalize and heal your body.

95% Concentrated oxygen at a pressure of 1.3 ATA causes an increase in oxygen delivery to injured or hypoxic tissues at as levels deeper than our normal blood supply can penetrate. This utilities the properties of liquids and gases under pressure, which causes oxygen to become dissolved into fluids such as plasma, cerebrospinal and synovial fluid, creating a systematic saturation of the brain, nervous system, muscles, joints and organs, penetrating difficult to reach regions in an effort to promote healing.

Why Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

Oxygen fuels the body to keep you on track.

Oxygen gives our body the ability to rebuild itself. It detoxifies the blood and strengthens the immune system. Oxygen also displaces deadly free radicals, neutralizes environmental toxins, and destroys anaerobic bacteria, parasites, microbes and viruses.

What does a Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber do for you?

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is oxygen so important?

An average adult consumes 3 pounds of food, 3 pounds of water and almost 6 pounds of oxygen, every day. People need about the same amount of oxygen by weight compared to food and water combined! From that 6 pounds of oxygen about 2 pounds gets into the blood for transport to tissue cells. When we don’t have enough oxygen in our body tissues a series of events occur that if not corrected lead to disease conditions, either infection, tissue destruction or both. If there is low oxygen in tissues (hypoxia) there is a short window of opportunity to correct it. An excellent method to correct tissue hypoxia is by using a hyperbaric chamber.

What do you feel inside a hyperbaric chamber?

The chamber has a comfortable seat, which can also be adjusted to allow you to lie flat.  The chamber atmosphere pressurization occurs slowly to allow you to adjust ear pressure changes. Yawning, swallowing or “blow the nose” clears ear pressure changes as you would do in an aeroplane. Other than this ear pressure there are no unusual or different sensations. There is NO water in the chamber.  You enjoy the camber in the clothing, you arrive in.

What difference does extra pressure create?

Hemoglobin (in red blood cells) holds 97% of its maximum amount of oxygen from normal air or holds 100% when breathing pure oxygen. One gram of hemoglobin can only combine with 1.34 ml of oxygen. Therefore, red blood cells can only deliver a limited level of oxygen to tissue cells, a pO2 of 39 mmHg or less. This is called oxygen tension (or oxygen partial pressure, “pO2”) and is measured in units labeled “mmHg” (the amount of pressure able to raise the equivalent weight of a liquid mercury column. Injuries, infections and diseases can drop this vital tissue oxygen level down to almost zero! As we age we can loose vital lung capacity and the ability to effectively obtain adequate oxygen. Some disease conditions impair oxygen utilization. Also, injuries or conditions with swelling can cause pressure that cuts off circulation flow. This loss of blood flow, called ischemia, cuts off oxygen circulation to the affected areas of the body. This problem drops the pO2 gravely low, destroys tissue, and slows healing. Research has shown optimal tissue healing occurs if pO2 rises to between 50 and 80 mmHg. Oxygen given in a normal room is not sufficient to raise tissue oxygen levels to that level because red blood cells cannot carry the extra oxygen. The answer is to deliver the oxygen in a pressurized chamber to raise oxygen tension beyond red blood cell saturation.

How does being inside a pressurized chamber give us more oxygen?

95% Concentrated oxygen at a pressure of 1.3 ATA causes an increase in oxygen delivery to injured or hypoxic tissues at as levels deeper than our normal blood supply can penetrate. This utilities the properties of liquids and gases under pressure, which causes oxygen to become dissolved into fluids such as plasma, cerebrospinal and synovial fluid, creating a systematic saturation of the brain, nervous system, muscles, joints and organs, penetrating difficult to reach regions in an effort to promote healing.

What serious health problems does oxygen given with increased pressure correct

Hyperbaric oxygenation helps the body heal from conditions that have low oxygen in the tissues causing or complicating the outcome. Repetitive hyperbaric sessions can help many different conditions; let’s mention the first few ABC’s such as anemia, burns and crush injuries. Compromised skin grafts often improve with hyperbaric oxygenation. Difficult to heal infections treated with hyperbaric oxygenation has attracted interest lately as antibiotic therapy can fail to clear today’s resistant strains of pathogens. Treatable infections include such diverse situations as actinomycosis, osteomyelitis, diabetic wounds, gangrene and related deadly tissue infections. In the last four decades hyperbaric oxygenation research has raised the value of this unique therapy. Doctors used to ask, “Can it work?” now they ask, “How much is needed to completely work?”

COVID-19’s effects on oxygen levels
Hypoxia’s ability to quietly inflict damage is why health experts call it “silent.” In coronavirus patients, researchers think the infection first damages the lungs, rendering parts of them incapable of functioning properly. Those tissues lose oxygen and stop working, no longer infusing the blood stream with oxygen, causing silent hypoxia. But exactly how that domino effect occurs has not been clear until now.

New hyperbaric oxygen therapy protocol can improve cognitive function of older adults
The Sagol Center for Hyperbaric Medicine and Research at Shamir Medical Center, together with the Sackler School of Medicine and Sagol School of Neuroscience at Tel Aviv University, announced today that a peer-reviewed study has demonstrated for the first time that hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) can significantly enhance the cognitive performance of healthy older adults.

Study finds hyperbaric oxygen treatments reverse aging process
A new study from Tel Aviv University (TAU) and the Shamir Medical Center in Israel indicates that hyperbaric oxygen treatments (HBOT) in healthy aging adults can stop the aging of blood cells and reverse the aging process. In the biological sense, the adults’ blood cells actually grow younger as the treatments progress.
