How does HBOT work?
Inside the Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy chamber, air pressure is increased to three times higher than normal air pressure. This includes breathing medical grade oxygen through a breathing mask. This enables the patient’s lungs to gather more oxygen and also stimulate growth of new blood vessels which in turn, promotes wound healing.
