We opened a new center in Sevilla, Spain

A new center of attention was inaugurated in Sevilla, Spain. The headquarters is located at Av. José María Tomasetti, 27, 41740 Lebrija, and will offer the benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy to the community. Hyperbaric oxygenation treatment is a non-invasive method that consists of supplying oxygen in a pressurized cabin at 1.45 atmospheres (ATM). The normal ambient atmospheric pressure is

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for the Compromised Graft or Flap

Tissue grafts and flaps are used to reconstruct wounds from trauma, chronic disease, tumor extirpation, burns, and infection. Despite careful surgical planning and execution, reconstructive failure can occur due to poor wound beds, radiation, random flap necrosis, vascular insufficiency, or ischemia-reperfusion (IR). Traumatic avulsions and amputated composite tissues—compromised tissue—may fail from crush injury and excessively large sizes. While never intended,

Hyperbaric oxygen effects on sports injuries

In the last decade, competitive sports have taken on a whole new meaning, where intensity has increased together with the incidence of injuries to the athletes. Therefore, there is a strong need to develop better and faster treatments that allow the injured athlete to return to competition faster than with the normal course of rehabilitation, with a low risk of

Scientific fundamentals of HBOT in diabetic foot

Hyperbaric Oxygenation Treatment is one of the most effective and safe medical tools that can reduce the major amputation of extremities of patients with severely infected diabetic foot. It is a statistically proven treatment option and supported by studies in evidence-based medicine, as long as it is used in conjunction with conventional treatment, without replacing (or delaying) revascularization when necessary

How do the discoveries of the Nobel 2019 prize relate to Hyperbaric Medicine?

On Monday, October 7th, 2019, it was awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine. The winners were William Kaelin, Gregg Semenza and Peter Ratcliffe, two Americans and a British who discovered the molecular mechanism by which cells adapt to lack of oxygen. The scientists found that cells have the ability to make adjustments in their metabolic rates for the functioning of the

Why does Hyperbaric Treatment favors rehabilitation?

Hyperbaric Oxygenation Treatment is widely used in traumas that affect different organs and tissues. Some traumatisms that require surgery and can be treated with HBOT are acute traumatic ischemia, compartment syndrome, and injuries involving nerve, muscle, and bone tissue. In rehabilitation, HBOT favors the recovery of neurological and physical sequelae resulting from surgeries, traumatic injuries and cerebrovascular accidents (CVA). In

Hyperbaric oxygen for Parkinson’s disease with severe depression

Patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD) frequently suffer from nonmotor symptoms, with up to 40% to 60% of PD patients suffering from psychiatric symptoms. Psychiatric symptoms can exacerbate the neuromotor symptoms of PD, complicating the care of patients with PD. Previous research has suggested that psychiatric symptoms comorbid with PD decreases the quality of life for the patient and increases the

Case report: hyperbaric oxygen in vasculitic ulcers

Skin ulcers are a dangerous and uncommon complication of vasculitis. Olivieri et al. describe the case of a teenager suffering from Systemic Lupus Erythematosus with digital ulcer resistant to conventional therapy, treated successfully with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. The application of hyperbaric oxygen, which is used for the treatment of ischemic ulcers, is an effective and safe therapeutic option in patients

Hyperbaric oxygen can reduce fibromyalgia symptoms

Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS) is a persistent and debilitating disorder estimated to impair the quality of life of 2–4% of the population, with a 9:1 female-to-male incidence ratio. FMS is the second most common disorder, after osteoarthritis, observed by rheumatologists [1]. The defining symptoms of FMS include chronic widespread pain, intense pain in response to tactile pressure (allodynia), prolonged muscle spasms,
