It is common knowledge that humans need oxygen to survive and to have a healthy life. Unfortunately, our air in the city is no longer that fresh anymore. We breathe in pollutants that cause respiratory problems, degenerative diseases, and aging. Thankfully, technology has brought us the hyperbaric oxygen therapy where we can breathe 100% oxygen under atmospheric pressure. It is now on soft operations in Bacolod City at the Advanced Hyperbaric Healthcare Center. Read more about this health and technology innovation that is the first in Western Visayas!
About The Advanced Hyperbaric Healthcare Center in Bacolod City
The Advanced Hyperbaric Healthcare Center in Bacolod is already the third of its kind in the Philippines. And it’s the first in Western Visayas.
It employs hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) where one can breathe in 100% oxygen under atmospheric pressure during the treatment process. According to their information manual, you will feel better, heal faster, and even stall some natural aging occurrences in the body.
The treatment takes place in state-of-the-art, computerized multi-chambers engineered and built in Germany. A patient can sit comfortably in the chamber and inhale therapeutic oxygen through a specialized face mask. There are several television sets in the area so that you won’t get bored just sitting there.
The oxygen therapy is ideal for these 14 indications*:
- Air or gas embolism
- Carbon monoxide poisoning
- Clostridial myositis and Myonecrosis (gas gangrene)
- Crush injury, compartment syndrome, and other acute traumatic ischemias
- Decompression sickness
- Arterial insufficiencies
- Necrotizing soft tissue infection
- Osteomyelitis (refractory)
- Delayed radiation injury (soft tissue and bone necrosis)
- Intracranial abscess
- Severe anemia
- Compromised grafts and flaps
- Idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss
- Acute thermal burn injury
Learn About the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
The hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) offered at the Advanced Hyperbaric Healthcare Center Bacolod is founded on the healing power of oxygen.
HBOT is an established and non-invasive treatment that has been around since the 1600s in other countries. The therapy enhances the body’s natural healing processes using this single ingredient — oxygen. Represented with the simple letter O (with atomic number 8) in the periodic table, oxygen is the third most abundant element in the world.
However, the purest form is no longer available for city dwellers, thanks to pollution brought by industrialization. Yes, pure oxygen is no longer free and that is also one of the reasons why many lifestyle diseases have developed.
We badly need pure oxygen to preserve, repair, and enhance cellular functions in the body. However, it is not readily available.
Breathing in 100% oxygen in a pressurized chamber that has a higher pressure than the sea breeze has a therapeutic effect on the body.
The higher concentration of oxygen that reaches the different tissues of the body accelerates natural healing processes. This will then cascade to positive health benefits and overall wellness that you can really feel.
The Center is still on soft opening. But you can already book your treatment sessions for February.
