Effects of Hyperbaric Oxygen on Inflammatory Response to Wound and Trauma

Proper management of a chronic wound requires adequate oxygen delivery to the tissue, adequate-protein, vitamins, minerals, nutritional factors, a moist environment, an appropriate inflammatory milieu, debridement, and correction of contributing medical diagnoses. In some patients, these conditions are achieved easily and the wound closes properly. However, in other patients, no healing can be obtained despite aggressive management of these conditions.

Review: Hyperbaric oxygen therapy, a treatment for chronic pain?

Management of pain, especially when it becomes chronic, is a challenging task requiring a multidisciplinary approach. Currently, most pharmacological, nonpharmacological and interventional modalities achieve only temporary or modest improvements in pain symptoms and often produce intolerable adverse effects which interfere with quality of life and lead to nonadherence. There is a need for new and effective chronic pain treatments that

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy for traumatic brain injury

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a treatment by which high oxygen concentrations are administered to a patient at a pressure greater than atmospheric pressure at sea level (i.e. one atmosphere absolute, ATA). The increased partial pressure of oxygen (pO2) within the blood and subsequent improved mitochondrial metabolism/tissue oxygenation constitutes the net effect of HBOT. Given that the dissolved oxygen content

Hyperbaric oxygenation therapy in healthy individuals

The clinical use of Hyperbaric Oxygenation (HBOT) consists of breathing oxygen (O2) at a high concentration in a pressurized chamber at least 1.4 absolute atmospheres (ATA). Under these conditions, a large amount of O2 is dissolved in the plasma, to be used by all cells, reaching even poorly perfused tissues. Developed initially for the recovery of carbon monoxide poisoning and

Spanish researchers evaluate the use of hyperbaric chamber in oncology

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is used to improve the supply of oxygen to damaged tissues, mainly due to oncological treatments. A group of researchers from Las Palmas, Spain, developed the protocol “FEASIBILITY OF A HYPERBARIC OXYGEN PROGRAM. TREATMENT OF TOXICITY. FIRST SPANISH EXPERIENCE “, to evaluate the viability, tolerability and short-term results of HBOT. The patients were referred by several

Dr. Romero: “The demand for Hyperbaric Medicine increases”

Hyperbaric Medicine is a non-invasive therapy that is based on increasing ten times the level of oxygen in the blood (hyperoxia). This favors cellular metabolism, achieving desinflammation and regeneration of the tissues. The increase in oxygen (93% O2) is achieved by dissolving it in the blood plasma, and for this, it is necessary to apply it at atmospheric pressures higher

Medical applications of the new hyperbaric oxygenation chambers generation

With Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) at 1.45 atm, the minimum required P2O2 (20 mmHg) is reached and greatly exceeded to cover the minimum average penetration radius required to satisfy cellular functions (~ 40μm). The Krogh model explains the existence of radial and longitudinal pressure gradients (PpO2), as a function of capillary radius and arterial and venous ends, respectively. From the

The Hyperbaric Chamber relieves pain and inflammation in patients with Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia (FM) is a disease characterized by chronic and generalized pain. No medical and scientific evidence has yet been found that can explain it. The sensation of pressure at specific points resembles joint pain, although FM is a rather rheumatologic or soft-tissue pathology. Between 2% and 6% of the population (around 6 million people in the world) suffers from FM

HYPERBARIC OXYGEN THERAPY ARRIVES TO PROVIDENCIA, CHILE

Hyperbaric Oxygenation Treatment continues to expand in Latin America. BioBarica opened the doors of a new center of attention in Providencia, Chile. The headquarters is in Eliodoro Yañez 2972, Of 702, Providencia. Santiago de Chile. 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

WE OPENED A NEW CENTER IN JUNÍN

A new service center was inaugurated in Junín. The headquarters is located at Primera Junta 19, (6000) Junin, Prov. de Bs. As. and will offer the benefits of hyperbaric medicine to the community. Hyperbaric chamber treatment is a non-invasive method that provides air and oxygen under pressure in a pressurized cabin at 1.45 ATM. The normal ambient atmospheric pressure is
