Although the high pressure chambers are almost 200 years old and there are many protocols, the new medium pressure technology is so efficient and does not carry the explosive and safety hazards required by high pressure chambers. Both technologies have similar performance and even the dose of oxygen provided at medium pressure gives in some cases a greater anti-inflammatory effect

The hyperbaric chamber benefits the recovery in oncological neck and head surgery

Hyperbaric Oxygenation Treatment (HBOT) is accepted by the medical community due to the benefits and multiple applications it has. The rise of oxygen in the tissues results in a stimulus on the enzymatic system, on the adrenal glands, a decrease in insulin requirements, promotes the synthesis of prostaglandins, increases vascular neoformation, phagocytosis and therefore reduces sepsis for its bactericidal activity

Indications and contraindications of the Hyperbaric Chamber

Hyperbaric Oxygenation Treatment (HBOT) has a set of physiological effects that affect the patient who is subjected to a hyperbaric environment. The therapy provides a number of therapeutic effects based on the increase in plasma oxygen transport together with better tissue availability. The benefits are applicable in certain pathologies and their side effects are well defined. They are rare if
