Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a non-invasive medical treatment which involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized room or tube. Breathing 100% oxygen under pressure allows oxygen to dissolve into the blood plasma, resulting in increased amounts of oxygen delivery to the tissues. Hyperbaric oxygen acts as an anti-viral and anti-bacterial, as bacteria and viruses typically cannot tolerate oxygen. This helps fight bacteria and stimulate the release of substances called growth factors and stem cells, which promotes healing.

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 breathing pure oxygen at normal air pressure.Your blood carries this oxygen throughout your body. Researchers are actively investigating into utility of HBOT in several other medical disorders. HBOT is of immense value as a life and limb saving measure in several medical and surgical conditions. HBOT appears to be promising in Autism affected children, Paralytic Stroke rehabilitation, Traumatic brain injury etc. HBOT in most cases supplements conventional treatment and not meant as Alternative therapy.
Your body's tissues need an adequate supply of oxygen to function. When tissue is injured, it requires even more oxygen to survive. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy increases the amount of oxygen your blood can carry. An increase in blood oxygen temporarily restores normal levels of blood gases and tissue function to promote healing and fight infection.
