Extending the Way of Healing
Oxygen8 America sells and installs hyperbaric chambers needed for hyperbaric therapy (HBOT). HBOT is a non-invasive medical procedure providing 100% oxygen supply to a patient in a chamber at pressures exceeding 2 to 3 times the normal atmospheric (sea level) pressure. Hyperbaric oxygen produces various responses at different dosages to increase the level of oxygen in the body.
HBOT has been and is used worldwide. It has proven to be useful for various indications as additional therapy and improves the body's healing abilities.
Uses of HBOT
Hyperbaric therapy helps athletes to cure faster from strains and sprains, which naturally cause swelling and edema. When swelling happens, it compresses the blood vessels and limits the critical supply of oxygen-carrying plasma and red blood cells to the wounds. Oxygen-starved cells and tissues around the site impede healing. In acute cases, cells and tissue may die. HBOT can encourage faster healing in the popular sports injuries:
Every year over 1.7 million people suffer from traumatic brain injuries (TBI). Brain injuries may take place on roadways, battlefields, playgrounds, or football fields. TBI is a disorder of normal brain function caused by a blow, bump, or jolt to the head caused by an external force.
