To benefit from hyperbaric oxygen therapy, you’ll likely need more than one session. The number of sessions depends on your medical condition. Some conditions might be treated in as little as 3 sessions. Others, such as nonhealing wounds, may require 20 to 40+ treatments.
To effectively treat other conditions, hyperbaric oxygen therapy is used as part of a comprehensive treatment plan to help boost the effects of the treatment plan such as stem cell therapy for example, that fit your individual needs.
HBot treatments increase the amount of oxygen your blood can carry. An increase in blood oxygen can restore normal levels of blood gases and tissue function to promote healing and fight infections. In recent years, HBot has claim to restore brain cells and reverse effects of TBI or other related brain injuries.
Some call it a “miracle cure” and claim that it can help with a wide range of conditions as an alternative therapy. In a hyperbaric oxygen therapy chamber, the air pressure is increased to three times higher than normal air pressure. Under these conditions, your lungs can gather more oxygen than would be possible breathing pure oxygen at normal air pressure.
Your blood carries this oxygen throughout your body, including the brain. This helps fight bacteria and stimulate the release of substances called growth factors and stem cells, which promote healing.
