Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

It is a non-invasive medical treatment. The patient enters the Hyperbaric Chamber and by means of a mask breathes high concentrations of oxygen at a pressure higher than the normal atmospheric pressure.
The Hyperbaric Chamber Treatment contributes to the recovery of different pathologies that present inflammation or pain. It is a safe therapy, since the number of sessions and their duration are always indicated by a physician.




It is a non-invasive medical treatment that increases the volume of dissolved oxygen in the blood plasma. Inside the Hyperbaric Chamber, the patient breathes high concentrations of oxygen at a pressure higher than normal atmospheric pressure. This results in multiple benefits for the organism.

Mechanisms of action of HBOT

  1. circle-check
    The patient breathes high doses of O2 in a hyperbaric environment.
  2. circle-check
    High HYPEROXIA increases the volume of dissolved oxygen in the blood plasma.
  3. circle-check
    The greater diffusion of oxygen reaches the less irrigated tissues.
  4. circle-check
    HYPEROXIA produces a wide variety of physiological benefits to the body.

Physiological Effects

The Hyperbaric Chamber produces strong hyperoxia that generates different benefits for the organism.

Repair of peripheral neuronal fibers
Oxygen promotes nervous system plasticity.
Hyperoxia stimulates and promotes the formation of small blood vessels, thus improving perfusion.
Collagen synthesis stimulation
Hyperoxia induces proline hydroxylation and fibroblast proliferation. Thus, it promotes collagen synthesis, which is essential for wound healing and tissue repair.
Bactericidal activity
Hyperoxia generates reactive oxygen species that increase the activity of antibiotics. It is also active against bacterial biofilm.
Regulation of oxidative stress and inflammatory response
Hyperoxia acts on regulators and mediators of the inflammatory response and decreases oxidative stress. This results in an anti-inflammatory effect and decreases cell damage.
Increases cerebral blood flow and neuroprotection
It improves perfusion thanks to the formation of new vessels and cerebral oxygenation, decreases edema and inflammation of the central nervous system.
Hyperoxia stimulates the differentiation of bone-forming cells, promotes osteogenesis and bone repair.
Decreases ischemia-reperfusion damage
It improves tissue microcirculation, decreases the production of reactive oxygen species and increases their degradation by stimulating the expression of antioxidant enzymes.
Analgesic effect
It has an analgesic effect in pathologies with nociceptive and neuropathic components, through tissue repair, recovery of functionality and reduction of inflammation.

History of Hyperbaric Medicine

1662 - Great Britain

Development of the first Hyperbaric Chamber sketch. It called "Domicillium".

1775 - 1789

Discovery of oxygen properties.

1860 - Canada

Construction of the first Hyperbaric Chamber.


Treatment of diver decompressive disease.

1920 - 1930 - USA

Treatment for hypoxic problems (circulatory, cardiac). Construction of the "Spherical Cunningham-Timken", a 5-floor Hyperbaric Chamber.

1959 - Amsterdam

First hyperbaric operating room for cardio-pulmonary surgeries and skin grafts.

1960 - USA and the rest of the world

First successful treatment of gas gangrene. The indications for injuries, anaerobic infections and carbon monoxide poisoning are extended.

1974-1990 - Russia

The emergency of the hyperbaric medicine centers in Moscow.

Nowadays - USA and Israel

Pressures lower than 2 ATA are described as optimal for neurological disorders and the indications are significantly expanded.
