Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy consists of increasing the oxygen level in the blood (Hyperoxia). To do this, the patient enters a specially designed and pressurized hyperbaric chamber. There, he breathes high concentrations of O2 at a higher pressure (1.45 ATA) than normal atmospheric pressure (1 ATA).
This generates hyperoxia and triggers different beneficial physiological effects. Among them:
Reduces the problems caused by hypoxia (lack of oxygen)
Promotes tissue regeneration
Has a bactericidal effect
Accelerates recovery processes
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy produces hyperoxia. This favors cellular metabolism and allows oxygen to reach the brain, cartilage, bones and affected tissues. Its main effects are:
The increase in O2 available in small arteries and capillaries favors vasoconstriction that occurs in healthy tissues and without deterioration of oxygenation. This promotes a redistribution of flow to hypoperfused areas.
The indications for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy are evolving with new evidence from scientific associations and Hyperbaric Medicine societies.
Currently, it is applied when there is hypoxia or lack of oxygen.
