WHAT IS HYPERBARIC OXYGEN THERAPY?

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, also known as hyperbaric oxygen treatment, HBO therapy or HBOT, is a specialized therapy that uses medical grade oxygen and an increase in atmospheric pressure. Treatments are also known as dives or “dry dives”. According to the UHMS it is, “an intervention in which an individual breathes near 100% oxygen intermittently while inside a hyperbaric chamber that is pressurized to greater than sea level pressure (1 atmosphere absolute, or ATA). For clinical purposes, the pressure must equal or exceed 1.4 ATA while breathing near 100% oxygen. The United States Pharmacopoeia (USP) and Compressed Gas Association (CGA) Grade A specify medical grade oxygen to be not less than 99.0% by volume, and the National Fire Protection Association specifies USP medical grade oxygen.”

MONOPLACE HYPERBARIC CHAMBERS

HIN utilizes Perry SIGMA 40 monoplace hyperbaric chambers. These large acrylic “hard” chamber systems can accommodate patients up to 500 pounds. Chamber systems include an outside entertainment system for viewing tv and other programming while undergoing treatment. HIN utilizes medical-grade oxygen and 100% cotton hyperbaric linens and clothing for patient safety.
