Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy(HBOT)
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is used to render quicker healing for various medical conditions as a part of a comprehensive treatment procedure. With the help of this procedure, the natural ability of the body’s healing process is enhanced by enabling the patient to inhale pure oxygen. In simple and plain language, HBOT basically increases the quantum of oxygen that can be carried by the blood.
As HBOT increases the amount of oxygen in blood it temporarily restores the right levels of gases in blood and regulates the functionalities of tissue to quicken the healing process and effectively fight the infection. An effective HBOT makes the body fluids to be saturated with oxygen more than six times that of natural level. This increased oxygen makes the cells to work beyond their normal capability and instantaneously provide the thrust to render better results with less exhaustion.
It is an outpatient procedure and does not require hospitalization. The pure oxygen at twice or thrice the normal pressure would be supplied through a mask or a face hood. By this way, the lungs collect three times more oxygen than what could have been achieved during normal procedure.
It is generally a safe procedure and the medical complications are quite rare. It is only in the unsafe practices, few risks associated with the air pressures can occur. After the completion of the therapy, it is normal to feel slightly tired and hungry and they would not limit any of your normal day-to-day activities. As it is a well established and regularly practiced procedure especially for treatment of decompression sickness that is associated with scuba diving no other serious side effects are anticipated.
For most of the conditions, this oxygen therapy is continued for two hours. Based on the medical conditions, more than one session may be required. For instance, for treatment of non-healing wounds more than 20 sessions may be required.
- HBOT facilitates the blur of blood brain barrier and readily makes the oxygen to cross over. This instantaneous availability of oxygen is readily accepted by the brain tissues.
- Moreover this therapy helps in metabolizing the crucial glucose, which is absolutely vital for the proper functioning of the brain and the production of neurotransmitters. The best advantage of this therapy is that no energy is spent additionally for the production of these transmitters.
- Increases the quantum of stem cells (As reported in a study conducted by University of Pennsylvania).
- Props up the chances of growth of new skin as it stimulates the collagen rich connective tissue cells.
- Helps to remove foreign bodies such as bacteria, fungi, dead cells in the blood stream by increasing the capability of WBC. This is basically facilitated by the stimulation of changes in molecules and enzymes.
- Induces the immune systems.
- Provides good anti-inflammatory effects.
- Remedy for arterial gas embolism
- Provides treatment for tissue death caused by infection of bone or skin
