HI-per-BARE-ick Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a procedure which enables a person to breathe pure oxygen under increased atmospheric pressure within a controlled chamber. This oxygen saturation reportedly enhances the body's immune and healing responses to renew tissue and accelerate healing. Increased oxygen therapy is said to be extremely safe and to have no long-term side effects
This treatment utilizes gaseous pressure greater than normal for administering oxygen in the treatment of certain diseases.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been in use for about 40 years. It is thought to aid healing by supplying oxygen to the wound. The Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Association notes that HBOT acts as a bactericidal, stops toxin production, and promotes tissue growth.
