Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy(HBOT)

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is also known as HBOT. It is one of the treatments for speeding up relieving of stubborn wounds, gangrene, carbon monoxide poisoning, and infections in which tissues are supplied for oxygen. HBOT can be done in many numbers of ways. For this therapy a special type of room can be allotted, it is known as a hyperbaric oxygen chamber. It is a very good particular chamber to breathe in unmixed oxygen in air pressure levels 1.5 to 3 times higher than average. Relieving cannot take place without proper oxygen levels in tissues and cells.

How Does HBOT Therapy Works

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy aids wound healing by giving oxygen-rich plasma to tissue undernourished for oxygen. Wound injuries harm the body’s blood vessels, which liberate fluid that leaks into the tissues and cause bulging. Swelling bereaves the damaged cells of oxygen and tissues begin to die. HBOT breaks the cycle of swelling, oxygen starvation and tissue death.

HBOT averts reperfusion injury, which is the hard tissue harm that happens when the blood supply recurs to the tissues after they have been deprived of oxygen. The body inside damaged cells leads to the release of detrimental oxygen radicals when the blood flow is interrupted by a crush injury. HBOT emboldens the body's oxygen radical scavengers to seek out the problem molecules and permit healing to continue.

HBOT aids the body’s immune system to block the action of dangerous bacteria andits strengths. HBOT can incapacitate the toxins of certain bacteria. Italso increases the tissues of oxygen concentration and resists infection. White blood cell's ability will be improved by this therapy and, its destroy invaders. It encourages the body for the formation of new skin cells and tissues.

Indications for HBOT:

HBOT Therapy Treatment Time

Regularly, this oxygen therapy treatment continued for 2 hours. Based on the medical condition, more than 1 session is required to treat, for non-healing wounds more than 20 sessions is required.

After Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

After completing Hyperbaric therapy you may feel lightheaded, tiredor hungry. After a short period, these symptoms will go away. Depends upon your medicinal conditions you have to attend the number of sessions. Some conditions, such as wound injury might take several visits depends on how well the wound responds to the therapy. Carbon monoxide poisoning might be treated in three visits and nonhealing wounds take 20 to 40 treatments. hyperbaric oxygen therapy is used as part of an administered with other therapies and comprehensive treatment plans and drugs that apt your individual needs.

Benefits of HBOT

Many injuries and illnesses fail to cure because of insufficient oxygen levels. Without appropriate oxygen levels in the tissue or cells curing cannot take place. Inflammation, bulging and decreasedblood flow contribute to nonhealing. This means sufficient oxygen is unable to reach the damaged part.

Cost of Hyperbaric Therapy Treatment:

The Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy treatment cost may varies across India. For the same disease, it could vary changes between differentcities located in different parts of the country.
