Hyperbaric Oxygenation Treatment
It is a non-invasive medical treatment that increases the volume of dissolved oxygen in the blood plasma. The patient enters the hyperbaric chamber and through a mask breathes high concentrations of oxygen at a pressure higher than normal atmospheric.
Hyperoxia is a significant increase in the availability of oxygen in the blood plasma. It promotes cellular metabolism and allows oxygen to reach the brain, cartilage, bones, and tissues that, due to various circulatory disorders, do not receive it properly.
HBOT mechanism of action
The increase of the oxygen available in small arteries and capillaries favors vasoconstriction that occurs in healthy tissues and without deterioration of oxygenation, as well as the redistribution of flow to hypoperfused areas.
Due to its therapeutic physiological effects, Hyperbaric Oxygenation Treatment is indicated in all pathologies that occur with pain and inflammation. Among its main effects: it accelerates rehabilitation times and promotes wound healing.
