15 benefits of Hyperbaric Medicine in your health

February 18, 2018




Treatment with hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a non-invasive method that involves supplying oxygen at high concentrations in a hyperbaric chamber pressurized to a minimum of 1.4 atmospheres (ATM). This generates a hyperoxia, significantly increasing the oxygen level in the blood, thereby in the tissues. Hyperoxia has many health benefits:

  1. Increases oxygenation in all tissues, including those damaged
  2. It has anti-inflammatory effects from vasoconstriction.
  3. It stimulates the cells that produce collagen
  4. It stimulates the immune response
  5. It increases blood flow, especially in poorly irrigated tissue
  6. It has bactericidal and bacteriostatic effects
  7. Accelerates wound healing time
  8. Produce angiogenesis, which is stimulating blood vessel formation
  9. Contributes to detoxification of gases and toxins
  10. Accelerates rehabilitation processes on ligament, bones or muscles injuries
  11. Stimulates the differentiation of bone forming cells and osteogenesis promoting bone repair
  12. Decreases symptoms related to depression, anger, sadness or fatigue
  13. Contributes to the regulation of oxidative stress
  14. Reduce muscle fatigue
  15. Increases energy at the cellular level
