Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a medical treatment that involves breathing 100% oxygen in a hyperbaric chamber. The pressure in the chamber is increased, anywhere from 1.5 atmospheres to up to 3 atmospheres. The hyperbaric oxygen treatment provides a dramatic increase in oxygen in the blood. The high level of oxygen in the blood then provides an increase in oxygen to all tissues, decreases swelling to any damaged tissues, and mitigates an over-reactive immune function. These three results, all from simply the increased oxygen of the blood, provide incredible healing benefits.
