Fact

The increase in oxygen in the blood stimulates the production of collagen, the body’s natural ‘scaffolding’, and helps the body regenerate blood vessels in compromised areas – both necessary for wound healing. It also activates the white blood cells to fight infection.

How does it work?

  • Uses pure oxygen to enhance the body’s natural ability to heal.
  • Encompasses 100% oxygen under 2-3 times greater pressure than atmospheric pressure.
  • This increased pressure (up to three atmospheres) causes a 10-15 fold increase in plasma oxygen concentration witch a results in an increase in tissue oxygenation.
  • Cannot be duplicated with topical O2 treatment.
  • Is extremely safe and effective when administered by qualified professionals.

Gaining Support

HBO is gaining more support.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (“CMS”) has continued to view hyperbaric medicine as cost-effective in limb salvage and has recently increased the covered indications for HBO.
