Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can be used for conditions and diseases that would benefit from a higher oxygen concentration, including pulmonary embolism, infections, and non-healing wounds.
Increased oxygenation throughout the body.
Cellular growth and regeneration.
Fighting infections and reducing inflammation.
Improved physiological function.
How does hyperbaric oxygen therapy work?
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy delivers 100 percent oxygen by using a chamber in which the air can be pressurized more than normal air pressure. The decompression of gas bubbles in your lungs are able to uptake more oxygen in this pressurized state, allowing for a higher saturation of oxygen in the blood.
Oxygen is transported to the body by red blood cells with a protein complex known as hemoglobin. Under a pressurized state, oxygen is dissolved into blood, plasma, central nervous system, lymph, and bone allowing oxygen to reach places that are blocked or restricted by injury or infection. Restoring blood oxygen levels replenishes the tissue and promotes healing.
“Hyperbaric medicine is an incredibly powerful tool. It can be as helpful and therapeutic as a surgical scalpel in the right patient for the right indication. We’re seeing a rise in specialized wound and hyperbaric centers across the United States,”
- Dr. Jeffrey Niezgoda, president of the American College of Hyperbaric Medicine.
Hyperbaric Oxygen at the NAD Treatment Center
The NAD Treatment Center uses the FDA approved Summit to Sea mild hyperbaric oxygen chamber at 1.3 ATA with an oxygen concentrator that enhances the clinical effect.
Our device is large enough for someone to fit comfortably and receive intravenous fluids during their one hour treatment.
