What Is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a form of medical treatment that grew from the experience gained by treating deep-sea divers with the “bends.” The therapy’s purpose is to increase the amount of oxygen in the blood.
During hyperbaric oxygen therapy, you breathe 100 percent oxygen. At the same time, the pressure surrounding your body is slowly increased above normal atmospheric pressure.
Learn how hyperbaric oxygen therapy may be able to help you.
