Learn How HBOT Works

Physics of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

To learn how HBOT works, we start with a short “the physics of gases” lesson.

At a constant temperature, the amount of a given gas (e.g. Oxygen) dissolved in a given type and volume of liquid (e.g. blood plasma) is directly proportional to the partial pressure of that gas in equilibrium with that liquid. – Henry’s Law

If you live or work at sea level pressure, it is known that a certain amount of oxygen is dissolved in your blood. However, when the body is pressurized in a hyperbaric chamber and using medical-grade oxygen, it is now possible to dissolve more oxygen in the blood plasma.

Dissolved oxygen in the blood moves rapidly throughout the body. Reaching and oxygenating each living cell. Not only does this increase the amount of available oxygen to the tissues it pushes this dissolved oxygen to reach areas of the body and brain that would normally be difficult to reach. Areas that have impaired circulation or damaged cells.

By increasing the oxygen available to an area that is injured and slow to heal, hyperbaric oxygen therapy accelerates the natural healing process. This in turn provides the stimulus for the body to heal. Technically, Fibroblast and Collagen production is accelerated and these are the building blocks for damaged tissue and bone healing.

Cerebral Plasticity

“HBOT improves cerebral plasticity, allowing the repair of chronically impaired brain functions and improved quality of life in mTBI patients with prolonged post-concussion syndrome and in post-stroke patients, years after the brain insult.” (Efrati S. et al Hyperbaric oxygen induces late neuroplasticity in post stroke patients—randomized, prospective trial).

Hyperbaric Oxygen Induced Angiogenesis

HBOT promotes angiogenesis (new blood vessel growth). > Learn more about Angiogenesis: The Key To Hyperbaric Oxygen HBOT Therapy.

Stem Cells

Published research has documented that hyperbaric oxygen therapy can increase the number of stem cells released from the body by up to eight times. These stem cells are increasingly recognized as essential to the body’s ability to self-heal.
