Hyperbaric oxygen therapy, also known as HBOT, medically utilizes oxygen at an air pressure higher than 1 atmosphere absolute (ATA). Under the pressurised environment, the oxygen dissolves into the blood plasma saturating the fluid and bringing about a wide range of positive cellular, biochemical, and physiological effects. HBOT is the most trusted, non-invasive form of treatment to increase oxygen levels in the organs of our body. Generally, an HBOT session can continue for about 60 to 90 minutes, where the patient inhales pure oxygen by lying down inside the hyperbaric chamber.
Several clinical research demonstrated HBOT’s innate capability of enhancing the body’s natural healing abilities. HBOT is used as a supplementary form of therapy to boost the healing process in both acute and chronic health conditions.
