DISEASES AND INJURIES WHICH REQUIRE HYPERBARIC OXYGEN TREATMENT (HBOT)

DISEASES AND INJURIES WHICH REQUIRE HYPERBARIC OXYGEN TREATMENT (HBOT)

Currently accepted conditions according to American UHMS and FDA

  • Air and or gas embolism
  • Carbon monoxide and cyanide poisoning
  • Gas gangrene
  • Crush injuries, compartment syndrome
  • Decompression sickness
  • Acute circulatory failure (strokes, near drowning and acute bleeding)
  • Sudden blindness syndrome
  • Sudden deafness syndrome
  • Post-traumatic brain injuries
  • Intracranial abscess
  • Skin grafts and flaps
  • Enhancement of healing in selected problem wounds (diabetic foot ulcers)
  • Osteomyelitis (refractory)

HBOT A PRIMARY TREATMENT

Chronic conditions which HBOT is considered a primary treatment together with surgical and medical treatment:

  • Chronic bacterially contaminated wounds
  • Strokes with different stages
  • Acute and chronic joint inflammation
  • Cranial nerves and spinal cord inflammation
  • Thermal burns
  • Sports injuries (muscles and ligaments)
  • Early dementia and Alzheimer disease

HBOT A SECONDARY TREATMENT

Chronic conditions which HBOT is considered a secondary treatment together with surgical and medical treatment:

  • Vertebral column injuries
  • Peripheral vascular diseases
  • Different tissue infection
  • M.S (Multiple Sclerosis)
  • Tinnitus
  • Migraine
  • Rheumatic diseases (rheumatoid and systemic lupus)
  • Autism in children
  • Cerebral palsy in children
  • Parkinsonian syndrome

HBOT AND AUTISM

Many children with autism spectrum disorders benefit from hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Some have experienced improvement in language and others, in fine motor skills.They may show early promising signs of improvement, but require a longer series of sessions to obtain substantial gains. There is no lab test to predict who will respond best to hyperbaric oxygen therapy, though if there is a known circulatory problem the likelihood of benefit is very significant. Autistic children who are more severely impacted seem to have a higher response rate than high-functioning children, though the anti-inflammatory effects and antioxidant effects of hyperbaric oxygen may make an important contribution to healing, even in the high-functioning children.

 HBOT IN SPORT INJURIES

Many sports injuries involve strains and sprains, which naturally cause swelling and edema (accumulation of excess fluid in connective tissue). These natural reactions to injury compress blood vessels and restrict the vital flow of oxygen-carrying plasma and red blood cells to the injury site.

Cells and tissues surrounding the injury site become starved for oxygen, which impedes healing. In extreme cases, cell and tissue death can occur. Mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy saturates the blood plasma and hemoglobin with oxygen. The red blood cells become more malleable as well, increasing their ability to penetrate restricted blood vessels. Life-giving oxygen is thus able to reach the injury site so that cells can heal and the immune system can fully defend the body against harmful agents. Healing time is reduced significantly, and athletes get back into play faster.
