Hyperbaric Oxygenation Treatment is used to treat decompression syndrome in divers. However, it has other applications. Most women with fibromyalgia who underwent this therapy experienced relief from pain and other symptoms, according to a small study. The patient’s’ brain images showed that two months of hyperbaric oxygen therapy could also have repaired abnormal brain activity in areas of the brain related to pain, the
Several studies have demonstrated the benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygenation Treatment before and after surgery. What is hyperbaric treatment and what are its effects? Hyperbaric Oxygenation Treatment (HBOT) is a non-invasive method that consists of 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
Hyperbaric Oxygenation Treatment continues to expand in Latin America. In this framework, BioBarica continues its expansion and opens the doors of a new center of attention in Montevideo. The headquarters is in Magariños Cervantes 1944. 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
The Society of Hyperbaric and Underwater Medicine (Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society) has approved a series of indications for the use of Hyperbaric Oxygenation Treatment (HBOT) in medical practice, either as a coadjuvant treatment or absolute indication. Among those related to angiology we have: injuries and wounds with scarring problems, where the diabetic foot has a preponderant role; grafts and

Instead, stroke occurs when a blood vessel ruptures and affects the brain. Both are also known as strokes. There are risk factors that increase the possibility of suffering any of these diseases.
Dr. Ane Jesús Escribano, an oncologist from La Paz Hospital in Madrid, addresses laSexta’s ‘¿What happens to me, doctor?’ program, what is hyperbaric oxygenation and what are its benefits. Hyperbaric oxygenation is a non-invasive method based on supplying air and oxygen at 1.45 atmospheres. “Hyperbaric medicine is used in treatments of diseases that occur with hypoxia”.
