Hyperbaric oxygen treatment (HBOT)
During HBOT, the patient breathes 100 percent oxygen in a hyperbaric chamber while under pressure. This causes oxygen to saturate blood plasma to 20 times the normal level. This high-level oxygen may be delivered four times further into diseased tissue than by breathing air alone.
The HBOT environment builds new blood vessels, decreases painful swelling and offers additional healing mechanisms. It also kills harmful bacteria and neutralizes tissue-destroying oxygen radicals.
