This transference from the RBC to the plasma is important because injury creates inflammation, which is a barrier that limits the ability of red blood cells to penetrate as it is very thick and compressed, leaving little room for larger RBCs to deliver vital oxygen for healing. However, when we undergo Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, the smaller O2 molecules are forced from the RBC into the plasma and can permeate through the inflammation and saturate the injured region, traveling 400% deeper into the tissue. Oxygen not only heals the injured body part but also decreases inflammation, returning tissue physiology to normal function. This is extremely important in Injury, Burns, Post-surgical, Diabetics, Lyme, Brain Injury/Concussion, Multiple Sclerosis, Autism/ADHD/Learning disabilities, Stroke, Other Neurological Conditions, Hypoxic injuries, Sleep Apnea and the list continues. The more oxygen we have in our bodies, the more energy we produce.
There are two types of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy: high pressure and mild hyperbaric therapy. High pressure is generally referred to as hospital-grade HBOT or just HBOT. It is generally administered between 1.5 – 3 ATA (absolute atmospheres . ) Wound clinics can go as high as 5 ATA. Mild hyperbaric, or mHBOT, is hyperbaric oxygen administered at 1.3 ATA. Each type of hyperbaric oxygen therapy has its advantages and disadvantages. The higher pressures are very useful in acute illnesses and wound healing. The lower pressures are safer, generally without side effects, and better for chronic illnesses. People with compromised immune systems, autoimmune conditions, and significant detoxification issues frequently find it very difficult to handle the higher levels of oxidative stress associated with the higher pressures of HBOT. The Quebec/McGill study, using HBOT in the treatment of cerebral palsy, found that patients at 1.75 ATA and 1.3 ATA were almost identical in improvement, and the patients at 1.3 ATA experienced better results with fewer side-effects (Stroller, 2004). One of the great advantages of mild HBOT is the low number of contraindications, risks, and side effects. “This is one of the lowest risk procedures in all of medicine,” says Paul Harch, MD, a leading expert in hyperbaric medicine.
Our office has the Grand Dive Pro by Summit To Sea. It is one of the largest mHBOT chambers manufactured in North America. It is very spacious ( like a tent ) and comfortable, which is especially important for those with anxiety. Two people can easily fit inside with plenty of space. During the 60 – 90-minute session, you can work on a laptop, listen to music, read a book or take a nap. Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers are Class 2 medical devices and require a doctor’s prescription (MD, DO, DC, NMD, NP) prior to use. Contact us if you need a referral to a Doctor for consult and prescription.

At 65 years old, it’s not uncommon for healing of the extremities to be tediously slow. Last month, I had a skiing accident that landed me in the hospital with a dislocated shoulder. The humerus bone was completely out of the socket for over three hours until the ER doctor could put it in place.read more
