..I've seen what Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy can do for people who felt hopeless before giving hyperbaric oxygen treatment a try. The results have ranged from subtle to dramatic - what some call miracles and, having seen the changes, I can understand why (Amazon.com, Customer Review of "Oxygen Revolution" written by Paul G. Harch, M.D. of New Orleans)
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) or more appropriately, High Dosage Oxygen Treatment has been alternately called highly effective1 and a therapy in search of diseases2 and for the most part has remained a nearly unknown treatment in the world of western medicine. There may be many reasons for this including historical controversy and prejudice, but non more important than the lack of awareness or sufficient information on the part of some physicians and the general public.
We hope the information on this website will help you to form a basic understanding of Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment and controlled hyperoxygenation. It might happen, one day the awareness of the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) would become of a great value either for you or for your dearest, like it has already done for a plenty of people when other efforts of mainstream medicine were unsufficient to help effectively...
Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment sets into motion cumulative processes promoting immediate and delayed healing activities. Read the explicit definition of Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment issued by Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS).
In order to prevent backlash from a strict scientific approach protecting patients from indiscriminate use, professional hyperbaric organizations had to establish guidelines for the employment of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. Learn about "approved" and "off-label" HBOT indications...
The mechanism of Hyperbaric Oxygenation is governed by physical laws described by Charles, Boyle and Henry. These are known as an ideal gas laws. Learn how Hyperbaric Oxygen (HBO2) alters conditions of tissue hypoxia, facilitates fibroblast proliferation or angiogenesis.
Hypoxia - a lack of Oxygen, remains a constant threat throughout life. Most conditions associated with hypoxia can benefit of HBOT. Learn about signs and symptoms of Hypoxic Hypoxia, Tissue Hypoxia, Histotoxic Hypoxia, Cerebral Hypoxia, Chronic Hypoxia, Altitude Sickness.
Hyperbaric Medicine is governed by physical laws described by Charles, Boyle and Henry, known as an ideal gas laws. Summarizing interrelation between gases, liquids, temperature and pressure these laws explain the physics behind Hyperbaric Oxygen. Learn more about HBOT History...
SPECT stands for Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography. It shows how blood flows to tissues of organs. As opposed to MRI or CT which show structure of organs such as a brain, SPECT might be more sensitive to brain injury because it can detect reduced blood flow to injured sites.
Prof. Philip James, M.D. of Dundee University, Scotland observes reasons of blindness in newborn babies highlighting a tragic failure of modern medicine to acknowledge the use of oxygen under pressure in treatment of retinopathy of prematurity...
Skin Grafts and Flaps require oxygen and nutrients to survive and often are compromised by inadequate oxygen supply. A number of studies have shown the efficacy of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) on enhancement of skin graft / flap survival...
The beginning of the 21st century has been marked by unprecedented terrorist activity resulting in massive blast injury and high fatalities in the initial phases of the trauma. Prof. G. Rogatsky at al. observs a life-saving effects of the early use of hyperbaric oxygenation.
Analyzing the mechanism of Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment this article explains and extends the physiochemical basis for the oxygen transport to ischemic tissues beyond the molecular diffusion transport mechanism... Read about a sad event with fortunate outcome motivated this research.
Non healing wounds or problem wounds such as diabetic ulcer wounds, vascular insufficiency ulcers (ulcers with poor circulation), compromised amputation sites, traumatic wounds all share the common problem of tissue hypoxia...
Acute cyanide poisoning in combination with carbon monoxide poisoning frequently occur simultaneously in victims of fires, smoke inhalation, military operations and industrial accidents. In combination, both elements exhibit synergistic toxicity.
Osteomyelitis is an inflammatory bone disease caused by bacterial infection or by other types of microorganisms such as Staph. Aureus, Strep. Pyogenes, H. influenza, Gram-negative organisms or Salmonella which can affect those with sickle-cell anaemia.
Robert L. Sands explains the oxygen toxicity in terms easily understood by doctors who write Rx for the use of HBOT to educate them to adverse effects and benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy and also the layperson who may be influenced or intimidated by the opinions of others.
Preventing death from cyanide poisoning primarily depends on the time between exposure and treatment. The term cyanide poisoning is also evokes associations of homicide or suicide victims poisoned with cyanide salts like potassium cyanide or of workers exposed to hydrogen cyanide gas.
Soft tissue necrosis is one of possible consequence of radiation exposure during radiotherapy, which may be defined as an ulcer located in the radiated tissue, without the presence of residual malignancy.
In spite of a number of existing Autism treatments, there are no miracle autism cures. For many realistic parents striving to help their autistic kids to feel less frustrated, communicate, perform and feel better, one of the crucial questions is what is the correct course of the autism treatment?
So, is there a link between autism and vaccinations? In response to the recent media attention given to a possible link between autism and vaccinations, the Immunization Action Coalition (IAC) has reprinted a special excerpt from Dr. Brown's Baby 411 that answers these questions...
Monoplace Hyperbaric Chambers are designed to treat one person at a time. A pressure compartment is typically a cylindrical metal or acrylic crystal clear tube allowing a person to observe her surroundings and facilitated with increased comfort and mobility features.
Multiplace Hyperbaric Chambers are designed to treat more than one person at a time facilitating treatments under higher internal pressure - up to 6 ATA, which extends the scope of treated conditions.
TRCS or Transportable Recompression Chamber Systems are uniquely designed for emergency evacuation and treatment of decompression sickness, air embolisms, blast injuries, smoke inhalation in victims of accidents, disasters, terrorist acts or military operations.
A portable hyperbaric chamber, that provides immediate treatment for different medical conditions, by supplying 100% oxygen to the patient at above atmospheric pressures, whilst being transported to a medical facility.
HYPERBARIC-OXYGEN-INFO.COM is all about promoting public awareness of Hyperbaric Oxygenation. The price of unawareness eventually would be too high, like in the story of Grace Kenitz who suffers from a rare mitochondrial disorder that kills children by the age of two. Grace was saved by Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (see this video...). Or read the stories posted by Prof. Eugen Levich, a car accident survivor, or Seva Brodsky, a road accident victim sustained TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury). If he'd been aware of his injury and the Hyperbaric Medicine's existence 27 years ago, would he have waited for so long before having Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy heal his brain?
