Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
We are happy to announce our newest service, mild pressure Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (mHBOT), now available and very affordable.
Our bodies rely on the constant supply of oxygen intake to survive. Our atmosphere is approximately 21% oxygen. This element is required by every cell in the human body to produce cellular energy via the mitochondria.
When oxygen is administered at high pressure rates, up to 20 times more oxygen can be absorbed by the bloodstream. This oxygen is transported to damaged organs and tissue which speeds up both healing and recovery time.
What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) refers to breathing in conditions of 100% pure oxygen under high pressure. This process encourages oxygen to be quickly absorbed and dissolved into the bloodstream at an expedited rate. Infection can slow healing because the blood supply to the affected site is damaged. HBOT increases the oxygen supply to these damaged tissues.
Mild hyperbaric therapy or mHBOT has also shown significant health benefits and may administer up to 95% oxygen in a small range of 1.3 to 1.4 atmospheric pressure. Providing incredible health benefits, mHBOT is a much more affordable treatment option.
Benefits of mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
mHBOT may benefit any patient who is healing from a condition triggered by inflammation in the body. The healing process can be improved using mHBOT to deliver a higher rate of oxygen to damaged tissue. In fact, oxygen controls more than 8,000 genes and is one of the most natural forms of antibiotics.
mHBOT use may help with the following:
- Stimulate new blood vessel growth and increase blood flow
- Elevate the body’s natural immune defences to fight infection and bacteria
- Reduce swelling that may occur around damaged areas
- Speed up healing by increasing tissue oxygen levels to areas in the body where they are reduced due to injury or illness
- Boost the supply of circulating stem cells
- Promote the growth of new capillaries and blood vessels
- Promote new nerve growth in the brain
- Reduce radiation and inflammation in tissue and bones
- Stimulate oxygenation
- Support faster wound healing.
Key features of the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Safety comes standard
Our Salus36 Portable Hyperbaric Chambers deliver oxygen at a safe and effective 1.35 ATA. With external and internal gauges, it’s easy to see what pressure the chamber is operating at. All of our chambers have 3 emergency exits that can be controlled by the user inside the chamber to safely exit the chamber quickly. Our two efficient compressors deliver 110L of air per minute into the chamber. Hyperbaric Chambers offers the only hyperbaric chamber that comes complete with carbon removing capabilities as a standard feature. This is SO important if you don’t want to poison yourself with carbon monoxide. We are the only portable hyperbaric chamber available worldwide with these safety mechanisms installed. The inbuilt oxygen concentrator allows it to deliver upwards of 5L or 10L of 95 to 97% oxygen per minute, making it an industry leader in Melbourne hyperbaric oxygen therapies.
Our chamber is manufactured using the best available engineering. The chamber itself is made from medical grade thermo plastic polyurethane and the joins are heat welded with NO TOXIC glues used.
