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


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 patient breathes high doses of 02 in a hyperbaric environment.
High HYPEROXIA increases the volume of dissolved oxygen in the blood plasma.
The greatest diffusion of oxygen reaches the less irrigated tissues.
Hyperoxia produces a wide variety of physiological benefits to the body.

Physiological effects

Non-hypoxemic vasoconstriction

The increase in O2 available in small arteries and capillaries favors vasoconstriction that occurs in healthy tissues and without deterioration of oxygenation. This promotes a redistribution of flow to hypoperfused areas

Stimulation of axonal and peripheral regeneration

The increase in O2 available in small arteries and capillaries favors vasoconstriction that occurs in healthy tissues and without deterioration of oxygenation. This promotes a redistribution of flow to hypoperfused areas

Angiogenesis

The increase in O2 available in small arteries and capillaries favors vasoconstriction that occurs in healthy tissues and without deterioration of oxygenation. This promotes a redistribution of flow to hypoperfused areas

Stimulation of cellular immunity

The increase in O2 available in small arteries and capillaries favors vasoconstriction that occurs in healthy tissues and without deterioration of oxygenation. This promotes a redistribution of flow to hypoperfused areas

Stimulation of collagen synthesis

The increase in O2 available in small arteries and capillaries favors vasoconstriction that occurs in healthy tissues and without deterioration of oxygenation. This promotes a redistribution of flow to hypoperfused areas

Bactericidal activity

The increase in O2 available in small arteries and capillaries favors vasoconstriction that occurs in healthy tissues and without deterioration of oxygenation. This promotes a redistribution of flow to hypoperfused areas

Regulation of oxidative stress and the inflammatory response

The increase in O2 available in small arteries and capillaries favors vasoconstriction that occurs in healthy tissues and without deterioration of oxygenation. This promotes a redistribution of flow to hypoperfused areas

Stimulation of stem cells

The increase in O2 available in small arteries and capillaries favors vasoconstriction that occurs in healthy tissues and without deterioration of oxygenation. This promotes a redistribution of flow to hypoperfused areas

Increases cerebral blood flow and neuroprotection

The increase in O2 available in small arteries and capillaries favors vasoconstriction that occurs in healthy tissues and without deterioration of oxygenation. This promotes a redistribution of flow to hypoperfused areas

Osteogenesis

The increase in O2 available in small arteries and capillaries favors vasoconstriction that occurs in healthy tissues and without deterioration of oxygenation. This promotes a redistribution of flow to hypoperfused areas

Non-hypoxemic vasoconstriction

The increase in O2 available in small arteries and capillaries favors vasoconstriction that occurs in healthy tissues and without deterioration of oxygenation. This promotes a redistribution of flow to hypoperfused areas.

Applications

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.
