Frequently Asked Questions
What is a hyperbaric chamber?
Biobarica uses Hyperbaric Chambers with Revitalair®️ technology that reach a pressure of 1.45 ATA and achieve complete efficiency in the diffusion of oxygen to all body tissues.
What are the characteristics of the Revitalair Hyperbaric Chambers?
Revitalair® Hyperbaric Chambers are pressurized with air and oxygen is administered through a mask. The air circulates avoiding oxygen accumulation. In addition, they have a triple safety valve to avoid any type of failure.
Why are Revitalair Hyperbaric Chambers safe?
The Revitalair® 430 hyperbaric chamber has a triple security system that acts sequentially to avoid any fault or malfunction of the user. The closure system is made of aeronautical aluminum and has a design that can withstand pressures several times higher than normal work. The flexible fabric and windows are designed and tested for frequent use and overpressures that cannot be reached by the equipment compression system.
What are the differences between Revitalair® 430 and other Hyperbaric Chambers?
The Revitalair® Hyperbaric Chambers are 1.45 ATA certified medical devices that have a removable stretcher for patients with reduced mobility and a zipperless opening system. Finally, there are large technological differences in air flows. In the Revitalair® technology hyperbaric chambers the treatment pressure can be lowered, but it cannot be raised. The equipment operating in standard form only works at 1.45 ATA, but in some cases, the doctors decide to work at a lower pressure and open the outlet valve 1 or 2 points. The internal pressure is stabilized at values between 1.1 and 1.45 ATM as indicated.
What is required to install and maintain a Hyperbaric Chamber?
Maintenance is done by the hyperbaric chamber operator with the instructions we provide. The Biobarica Global System (BGS) management software notifies you of all necessary maintenance for the equipment to function properly. In case of any technical problem, Biobarica offers personalized attention and operational support through direct contact with the factory.
How does Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy work?
Oxygen is obtained through a mask. This generates strong hyperoxia. Hyperoxia produces different beneficial physiological effects that act at different levels and in different tissues simultaneously.
What are the physiological effects of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?
- Non-hypoxemian vasoconstriction
- Angiogenesis and vasculogenesis
- Proliferation and stimulation of stem cells
- Stimulation of collagen synthesis
- Regulates oxidative stress and inflammatory response
- Stimulates axonal and peripheral regeneration
- Increases neuronal function and neuroprotection
- Bactericidal activity
- Promotes cellular immunity
How is a session in a Hyperbaric Chamber?
The Hyperbaric Chamber is used to improve the symptoms of pathologies that occur with hypoxia in tissues or cells. It is an adjunctive treatment. It does not cure on its own, but it speeds up the recovery processes generating the hyperoxia necessary to combat the lack of oxygen. Its effect enhances the treatment indicated by the doctor.
Is Hyperbaric Oxygenation Treatment therapeutically safe?
What are the benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy at 1.45 ATA?
In neurology, there were achieved superior therapeutic effects by working with pressures lower than 2 ATM. The researchers suggest that, at the neuronal level, neuroplasticity or neuronal recovery and nerve fiber regeneration is achieved with low-level oxygen dose, since at higher levels of oxygen the reactive oxygen species are toxic to the neuron and therapeutic effect is not produced. This pressure at 1.45 ATA is also ideal for treating pediatric or epileptic patients.
What are the contraindications of Hyperbaric Oxygenation Treatment?
Some special care should be taken in patients with claustrophobia, upper airway diseases, patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, as well as controlling blood glucose in diabetic patients and checking blood pressure in hypertensive patients. By taking the necessary precautions, all these conditions can be overcome without major problems.
