Do you ever wonder what oxygen would look like if you could see it or feel it? Well, at Mobile Hyperbaric Centers, you will be able to see and feel the difference oxygen can make in the quality of your life.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a mode of medical treatment that involves delivering high doses of oxygen to the body. It is done by breathing 100% oxygen through special head gear while inside a pressurized treatment room.
The pressure in the treatment room causes the oxygen you breathe to be dissolved in your blood, much like pressure causes carbon dioxide to be dissolved in soda pop. This extra oxygen is used by the body in many ways, such as reducing swelling, controlling infection, and stimulating the growth of new blood vessels. It allows for conditions such as non-healing wounds to heal when they otherwise would not.
HBOT is called "adjunctive therapy" because it is to be used along with the other forms of treatment your health care team has prescribed. Adding HBOT is proven to significantly increase healing over standard care alone.
