How HBOT Works

HBOT involves breathing oxygen in a pressurized chamber in which the atmospheric pressure is raised up to three times higher than normal. Under these conditions, your lungs can gather up to three times more oxygen than would be possible breathing oxygen at normal air pressure.

Patel explains that your body's tissues need an adequate supply of oxygen to function. When tissue is injured, it may require more oxygen to heal. "Hyperbaric oxygen therapy increases the amount of oxygen dissolved in your blood," says Patel. An increase in blood oxygen may improve oxygen delivery for vital tissue function to help fight infection or minimize injury.

Hyperbaric chamber therapy, otherwise known as hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), is a medical treatment used to help boost the body’s natural healing processes. Historically, hyperbaric oxygen therapy was first used in the United States in the early 1900s. Later, it was used to treat a condition called decompression sickness, a hazard of scuba diving.

HBOT allows for oxygen to be dissolved in the blood, body fluids, cerebral spinal fluid (the fluid that surrounds the brain and spinal column), bone tissue, and lymph nodes. Oxygen-rich fluids in the body can then travel to areas where blood circulation is blocked.

HBOT is said to help the body by assisting with the following functions:

  • Helping the immune cells of the body to kill bacteria
  • Reducing inflammation
  • Allowing for collateral circulation (growth of new blood vessels to provide extra oxygen to affected areas of the body)
  • Detoxifies
  • Increases Stamina
  • Anti-aging
  • Increase Alertness
  • Strengthens Immune System
  • Reduce Inflammation
  • Repairs and Rejuvenates Damaged Cells
  • Builds New Blood Vessels
