Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Benefits

  • Enhanced wound healing: by increasing oxygen concentration in the bloodstream, hyperbaric therapy promotes faster healing of wounds, including chronic non-healing wounds and diabetic foot ulcers.
  • Reduced inflammation: the therapy also helps to decrease inflammation by boosting oxygen in the tissues, which can alleviate pain and discomfort associated with various conditions.
  • Improved immune response: hyperbaric therapy can boost your immune system’s ability to fight infections and generate new stem cells, making it particularly helpful in treating non-healing wounds and infections resistant to traditional treatments.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment (HBOT) FAQs

Common questions that people have about hyperbaric treatment and hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

What is hyperbaric oxygen therapy used to treat?

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been used to treat various conditions, including the following:
1. Decompression sickness: commonly experienced by divers, it occurs when nitrogen bubbles form in the bloodstream due to rapid changes in pressure.
2. Carbon monoxide poisoning: HBOT can help eliminate carbon monoxide from the body more quickly and reduce the risk of long-term neurological damage.
3. Chronic non-healing wounds: this therapy is beneficial for diabetic foot ulcers, venous stasis ulcers and pressure ulcers, as it promotes healing by increasing oxygen concentration in the tissues.
4. Radiation injury: hyperbaric oxygen therapy can help treat radiation injuries - such as radiation cystitis, proctitis and osteoradionecrosis - resulting from cancer treatments by stimulating the growth of new blood vessels and improving tissue oxygenation.
5. Skin grafts and flaps: HBOT can enhance the survival and healing of skin grafts and flaps by providing an oxygen-rich environment that supports tissue regeneration.
6. Necrotizing soft tissue infections: these are severe, rapidly progressing infections that can cause extensive tissue damage. HBOT can aid in managing these infections by enhancing the immune system's ability to fight the infection and promoting tissue repair.
7. Gas gangrene: caused by the Clostridium bacteria, this life-threatening infection can be treated with HBOT in conjunction with surgery and antibiotics.
8. Osteomyelitis: HBOT can be an effective adjunct treatment for chronic bone infections that are difficult to treat with antibiotics alone.
9. Central retinal artery occlusion: HBOT can help improve vision in some cases by increasing oxygen supply to the affected areas of the retina.
10. Sudden sensorineural hearing loss: in some cases, HBOT may help restore hearing by providing more oxygen to the inner part of the ear.
It is essential to consult a healthcare provider to determine if hyperbaric oxygen therapy is suitable for your specific condition. Also, bear in mind that the effectiveness of HBOT may vary depending on the individual and the condition being treated.

What are the risks of hyperbaric oxygen therapy?

While hyperbaric oxygen therapy is generally considered safe, it does have some risks and potential side effects. Some of the possible risks and side effects associated with HBOT include:
1. Barotrauma: as the pressure changes inside the hyperbaric chamber, it can cause discomfort or injury to the ears, sinuses or lungs. This is called barotrauma and can occur when the pressure inside these areas doesn't match with the chamber's pressure.
2. Oxygen toxicity: breathing in high concentrations of oxygen for extended periods can lead to oxygen toxicity, which can cause lung damage, seizures or even changes in vision.
3. Claustrophobia: some patients may feel confined or uncomfortable in the hyperbaric chamber, especially if they have claustrophobia or fear of enclosed spaces.
4. Changes in vision: temporary changes in vision, such as nearsightedness (myopia), may occur after several treatments. This change is usually temporary and resolves over time after the therapy is completed.
5. Low blood sugar: diabetic patients may experience a drop in blood sugar levels during HBOT, so it's essential to monitor blood sugar levels closely.

Is hyperbaric oxygen healthy?

The Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a medical treatment and should only be used under the supervision of a team of oxygen therapy experts. While it can be beneficial for specific health issues, it is not a general wellness treatment and it does carry some risks, as mentioned in the previous FAQ.
As with any medical treatment, it's essential to consult a healthcare provider to determine if hyperbaric oxygen therapy is appropriate for your particular needs and to discuss the potential risks and benefits.
Integrative hyperbaric oxygen therapy can also be complemented with other types of natural therapies such as osteopathy, physiotherapy, nutritional control, phytotherapy, adapted exercise prescription.

How effective are hyperbaric chambers?

The effectiveness of hyperbaric oxygen therapy depends on the specific condition being treated and the individual patient. For some conditions- such as carbon monoxide poisoning, chronic non-healing wounds and radiation injury - HBOT has been shown to be quite effective, while for others, the benefits may be more limited or still under investigation.

What does being in a hyperbaric chamber feel like?

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is usually comfortable and painless. You might feel pressure in your ears and sinuses, similar to being on an airplane. To relieve ear discomfort, try swallowing or yawning. The chamber may feel warm and you'll breathe pure oxygen through a mask. The treatment takes 60-120 minutes, which some people find boring. Afterwards, you might feel lightheaded or have mild ear discomfort, but these effects usually go away quickly. Overall, HBOT is generally well-tolerated by most patients.

What happens during an Oxygen Therapy session?

During hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), you will undergo the following steps:
1. Preparation: you'll be asked to wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing (such as pajamas or nightgowns). Items such as jewelry, electronic devices and other personal belongings are removed, as they are not allowed inside the chamber due to the risk of fire. Make up and body cream/oils aren't allowed either.
2. Entering the chamber: you then enter a hyperbaric chamber, which can be a monoplace chamber (designed for one person) or a multiplace chamber (accommodating multiple patients). In our monoplace chamber, you'll lay down on a comfy stretcher and you could also enjoy your favorite series, music or documentaries on out TV which is located inside the chamber.
3. Pressurization: the chamber is sealed and the pressure inside is gradually increased to 1.5 to 3 times the normal atmospheric pressure. The increased pressure is achieved by filling it with compressed air or oxygen. This process may take about 10-20 minutes, depending on the specific treatment protocol.
4. Breathing pure oxygen: once the desired pressure is reached, you start breathing 100% pure oxygen. The high concentration of oxygen, combined with the increased pressure, allows more oxygen to dissolve into your bloodstream and be delivered to your body tissues.
5. Duration of treatment: a typical HBOT session lasts 60 minutes. The total number of treatments depends on the specific condition being treated and your response to therapy. You may need anywhere from a few sessions to several dozen treatments over the course of weeks or months.
6. Depressurization: after the treatment is completed, the chamber's pressure is gradually reduced back to normal atmospheric pressure. This process typically takes around 10-20 minutes.
7. Post-treatment: once the chamber is depressurized, you come out and the treatment is complete. You may experience mild side effects such as ear or sinus discomfort, fatigue or lightheadedness, which usually resolve on their own shortly after the session.

How long does it take for hyperbaric oxygen therapy to work?

The time it takes for hyperbaric oxygen therapy to show results can vary depending on the specific condition being treated, the severity of the condition and the individual patient's response to the therapy. Some patients might see improvements relatively quickly, while others may take longer to notice significant changes.
For some conditions, such as decompression sickness or carbon monoxide poisoning, the effects of HBOT can be seen almost immediately after one or a few treatment sessions. In cases of chronic non-healing wounds or radiation injuries, the improvements might become apparent after several sessions, which can span weeks or even months.

Why do we apply a functional approach to hyperbaric oxygen therapy and hyperbaric chambers?

A functional approach to HBOT focuses on providing comprehensive care that addresses the whole person, not just the symptoms or the condition being treated. By considering various aspects of your health and well-being, this approach aims to promote better outcomes and long-lasting improvements in the your quality of life.
During the consultation, we pay a lot of attention to what the patient wants to share with us. Active listening is a fundamental pillar of functional memdicine, in order to fully understand the situation of the patient and his/her main discomfort. Once a diagnosis has been made, we present the best alternatives to the patient: we like to combine different therapies to give our patients a vast range of options to choose from. a Ultimately, it's them who will decide what kind of therapy they feel confident wirh, based on risks and benefits. Giving them exhaustive information is very important to us, and in order to do we, as medical professionals, need to put time and effort to create a trusting atmosphere.

Are there unapproved uses of hyperbaric oxygen therapy?

Yes, there are unapproved uses of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). Some of these unapproved uses include:
• Autism spectrum disorders
• Cerebral palsy
• Multiple sclerosis
• Alzheimer's disease
• Fibromyalgia
• Chronic fatigue syndrome
• Lyme disease
• Migraine headaches
• Sports injuries and performance enhancement
• Anti-aging and cosmetic treatments

Is hyperbaric oxygen therapy safe for everyone?

While hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is generally considered safe, it may not be appropriate for everyone. Certain medical conditions or circumstances may increase the risks associated with HBOT or make it unsuitable for some individuals. Some contraindications or precautions for HBOT include:
• Untreated pneumothorax (collapsed lung): HBOT can worsen the condition and cause severe complications.
• Certain lung diseases: patients with severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or bullous lung disease are at a higher risk of complications during HBOT due to the increased pressure on their lungs.
• Seizure disorders: although rare, oxygen toxicity can occur during HBOT, which can increase the risk of seizures in patients with a history of seizure disorders.
• Certain medications: some medications, such as doxorubicin, cisplatin, and disulfiram, may interact negatively with HBOT. It is essential to discuss all medications and supplements with your healthcare provider before undergoing HBOT.
• Recent ear surgery or ear injury: air pressure changes during HBOT may be uncomfortable or harmful to patients who have recently had ear surgery or sustained an ear injury.
• Pregnancy: although oxygen treatment is not strictly contraindicated for pregnant women, its use during pregnancy should be carefully evaluated on a case-by-case basis, weighing the potential benefits against any potential risks to the mother and fetus.
