Biobarica keeps spreading all the benefits from hyperbaric medicine around the world and opened a new unit in Atlanta City. It is located in the Spine Center, at 3161 Howell Mill Rd, United States. The center counts with specialized services in spine, neck, and back.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a non-invasive medical treatment that consists in providing the patient with high concentrations of oxygen using a mask in a pressurized environment. This generates a significant increase of oxygen in the blood and, consequently, a better reach of O2 to cells, tissues, bones, and cartilages
Also, it works as a coadjuvant therapy because it boosts other treatments, accelerates the recovery times, and promotes wound healing due to the physiological effects produced by hyperoxia. Some of them are:
- Stimulation of collagen synthesis
- Regulation of oxidative stress and the inflammatory response
- Increases cerebral blood flow and neuroprotection
- Stimulation of axonal and peripheral regeneration
- Stimulation of cellular immunity
Hyperbaric chambers with Revitalair 430F Technology has a versatile design and, thanks to its removable stretcher system, patients with reduced mobility can do the treatment without any problem.
In addition, the chamber has ten windows, constant ventilation, as well as a system of fast opening and closing valves that the patient can manipulate to leave in seconds when required. That is why claustrophobia is not a contraindication for hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
Hyperbaric oxygen treatment at 1,45 atmospheres is safe because it doesn´t produce excitability in nervous tissue and also there is no risk of oxygen toxicity.
The session lasts from 60 to 90 minutes, depending on the doctor's indications. It is recommended to enter with comfortable clothes.
