Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (hbot) is a painless, non-invasive and highly comfortable procedure where a person will be subjected to inhale pure oxygen by resting inside a compression chamber for a predetermined amount of time. Inhaling pure oxygen results in filling up the blood with oxygen and supply of oxygen to all the muscles and tissues of the body effectively fighting infections, increasing stem cells and promoting healing. Many medical conditions including severe Anemia, brain abscess, burns/wounds (especially in diabetic people), infections of skin and tissues etc can be treated without administering any medication.
As per the limited recent research conducted on severely ill patients suffering from COVID-19 and severe shortness of breath and those on ventilator, HBOT has proved as a life saving therapy. For patients with severe shortness of breath, five sessions of HBOT and for those on ventilator, twenty sessions of HBOT were done. After the sessions, the patients were out of the critically ill status and recovered.
Body cells (including skin cells) get damaged as the body ages and also due to the toxic environment that we get exposed to. HBOT helps by combating these degenerative conditions by putting the life back into such cells and tissues and helps in regeneration and growth of new cells and tissues. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy helps in stem cell proliferation and mobilization that helps in reducing the speed at which a body ages.
Reduction in the haemoglobin cells (due to any medical condition) of the blood in the body results in lesser oxygen carrying capacity of the blood to muscles and tissues. Such people become perfect candidates for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. Making them inhale more oxygen than they would normally get from the atmosphere, fills up their blood cells with more oxygen effectively reducing the risks associated with lack of haemoglobin cells.
As the currently available treatment options are partially effective, HBOT helps patients suffering from fibromyalgia by relieving some of their symptoms. HBOT therapy significantly reduced pain, symptoms of anxiety, fatigue and overall severity of symptoms in 87% of the test subjects in a study.
A study performed to evaluate the effectiveness of HBOT for treating injuries caused during sports has revealed that HBOT helped in early recovery from muscular injury by accelerating cell recovery and tissue repair. A significant improvement in muscular enzymes in the patients pointed towards the positive effects of HBO Therapy.
