Use of hyperbaric oxygen in rheumatic diseases: case report and critical analysis

Hyperbaric oxygen has been used in patients with rheumatic disease for many years without reports of untoward or unusual complications for a variety of non-rheumatic indications. Recent evidence that hyperbaric oxygen inhibits the actions of certain cytokines, acts as an immune modulator and may help cognitive dysfunction has resulted in a re-examination of its potential role in rheumatic diseases. This

Hyperbaric oxygen as an adjunctive therapy in treatment of malignancies

One of the major issues contributing to the ineffective medical treatment of cancer is the occurrence of local hypoxia within the central tumor areas. The application of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) may help overcome the problem of oxygen deficiency in the poorly oxygenated regions of the neoplastic tissue. To date, several reviews on the use of HBO in cancer treatment

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy for painful bladder syndrome/interstitial cystitis resistant to conventional treatments

Painful bladder syndrome/interstitial cystitis (PBS/IC) is a collective term covering a range of clinical complaints and pathological findings. Approximately 10-50% of PBS/IC patients demonstrate a classical mucosal ulcer (Hunner’s ulcer), and the majority are diagnosed on the basis of positive factors and exclusions derived from the diagnostic criteria of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases for

A study revealed that hyperbaric medicine temporarily reverses Alzheimer’s symptoms

Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy in a pressurized chamber (HBOT) allowed temporary improvements in the symptoms of a 58-year-old woman with Alzheimer’s. The authors of the study estimated that HBOT combined with medication can be an effective long-term therapy For the first time, it was documented, by positron emission tomography (PET) scans, that hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), a medical treatment based on 100%

Hyperbaric oxygen treatment induces antioxidant gene expression

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has recently been promoted as an approach to slow aging. HBOT is the medical use of oxygen at higher than 1 atmosphere (atm) of pressure. The therapeutic principle behind HBOT stems from increasing the partial pressure of oxygen in the tissues of the body. In addition, HBOT increases the oxygen-carrying capacity of blood plasma beyond those

BioBarica continues to grow in Europe

BioBarica continues to grow in Europe. We opened two new service centers for HBOT, one in Milan, Italy and the other one in Maxeville, France. HBOT is a non-invasive method that consists in supplying oxygen at high concentrations in a pressurized hyperbaric chamber at a minimum of 1.4 ATM atmospheres (higher than the normal ambient atmospheric pressure of 1 atmosphere). The person is

Un hospital público logra reparar tejidos en tiempo récord gracias a una cámara hiperbárica

Es la primera vez que se puede acceder a esta tecnología en la salud pública. Clarín habló con pacientes que sufrieron quemaduras o heridas cortantes y se recuperaron. Guillermo Britez Neira (27) estaba a 3.800 metros de altura, en el cerro Pedro Zanni, en Mendoza, cuando empezó a sentir “mucho frío en los pies”. Esperó a llegar al campamento base para sacarse las

10 frequently asked questions about hyperbaric oxygen therapy

Hyperbaric oxygenation therapy (HBOT) is a non-invasive medical treatment that involves the administration of oxygen at high concentration (close to 100%) inside a hyperbaric chamber where the pressure is higher than the normal atmospheric pressure (1 atm). Under normal conditions, oxygen is only transported by hemoglobin within the red blood cells. The hyperbaric chamber also allows to dissolve it in

APLICACIÓN DE TRATAMIENTO HIPERBÁRICO EN EL MANEJO DEL LEGG-CALVÉ- PERTHES

The pathology of Legg-Calvé-Perthes is defined as a condition of the hip that can affect the growth plate, avascular neurosis of the ossification center of the femoral head or group of alterations of the vascularization in the ossification nuclei. Its origin is idiopathic and it occurs in the growing femur. Hyperbaric oxygenation could be useful for this pathology. Signs and
