Conditions that can be treated with hyperbaric oxygen therapy

Category: HBOT

HBOT has been successfully used in the treatment of various conditions, both acute and chronic. Some of the conditions that can benefit from HBOT include: 1. Wound healing: HBOT is commonly used to treat wounds that are slow to heal, such as diabetic foot ulcers, pressure sores, and non-healing surgical wounds. The increased oxygen levels promote tissue regeneration and accelerate the healing process. 2. Carbon monoxide poisoning: HBOT is the gold standard treatment for carbon monoxide poisoning. The increased oxygen levels in the blood can rapidly remove the carbon monoxide and prevent further damage to vital organs. 3. Decompression sickness: Also known as “the bends,” decompression sickness occurs when nitrogen bubbles form in the blood and tissues due to a rapid change in pressure, such as ascending too quickly from a deep dive. HBOT helps to reduce the size of these bubbles and facilitates their elimination from the body. 4. Radiation injuries: HBOT has shown promise in treating radiation injuries, such as those caused by cancer treatments. The increased oxygen levels promote tissue healing and reduce the risk of complications, such as delayed wound healing and radiation necrosis. 5. Traumatic brain injuries: HBOT has been studied as a potential treatment for traumatic brain injuries (TBI). The increased oxygen levels can help reduce brain swelling, improve blood flow, and promote tissue healing, potentially improving outcomes for individuals with TBI.
