Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) has been proven effective for a variety of surgical, medical and emergency conditions resulting from traumatic injury, diabetes, radiation treatments, infections and decompression sickness.

HBOT is a medical treatment of breathing 100% oxygen while under increased atmospheric pressure. This pressure enables oxygen to be delivered quickly and in greater quantities to affected areas of the body, which may have reduced circulation or have suffered oxygen deprivation.
