The oxygen increase in blood reached by the hyperbaric chamber is anti-inflammatory, stimulates the formation of new blood vessels, stimulates the cells that produce collagen, stimulates the release of stem cells and increases the bactericidal activity of white blood cells. All of these effects promote the scaring process and rehabilitation of wounds produced by venous and circulatory insufficiency.
Along with stimuli that promotes collagen synthesis and neovascularization, hyperoxia also stimulates the formation of granulation tissue in tissue affected by adverse conditions. Through the synergy between these mechanisms, the wound healing process is accelerated.
