Common Use for HBot

While HBot treatment has been around since the 1940’s. Originally used for Divers who surface too quickly and are at risk of decompression illness (DCI), which some call “the bends,” an air gas embolism, or both, much research still needs to be done on the effects of HBot treatments. Many countries have already approved HBot for many treatments, the United States on the other hand has limited what it approves for use of HBot treatments.

The following is a list of FDA approved uses and all other unapproved FDA uses which may or may not be approved for use in your country. Always check with your doctor before seeking any alternative treatments like HBot.

The FDA have approved HBOT to help treat:

  • DCI
  • Air or gas embolism
  • Anemia due to severe blood loss
  • Some brain and sinus infections
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Burns resulting from heat or fire
  • Skin grafts
  • Necrotizing soft tissue infections
  • Osteomyelitis, a bone marrow infection
  • Arterial insufficiency, or low blood flow in the arteries
  • Acute traumatic ischemia, which may involve a crush injury
  • Gas gangrene
  • Radiation injury, for example, as a result of cancer treatment

Some call it a “miracle cure” and claim that it can help with a wide range of conditions as an alternative therapy. While some of the claims may be true, the FDA have raised concerns about the risks of using HBOT “off label.”

The FDA point out that they have not approved HBOT as a treatment for the following:

  • Asthma
  • TBI or brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Bell’s palsy
  • Sports-related injuries
  • Depression
  • Migraine
  • HIV
  • Hepatitis
  • Heart disease
  • Multiple sclerosis
