What Are the Health Benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?
The air that we breathe is made up largely of oxygen. But inhaling 100% oxygen under atmospheric pressure in a hyperbaric chamber is different.
It brings so many health benefits as well as faster healing for injuries. Among the health benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy are:
- Increased delivery of oxygen to injured tissues.
- For cancer care and post chemotherapy support.
- Greater blood vessel formation.
- Faster healing of wounds.
- Works synergistically with antibiotics.
- Preserves damaged tissues and stimulates new bone formation
- Stimulates growth factors.
- Reduces swelling (edema).
- Relieves chronic pain.
- Addresses hypoxia.
- Improves memory and cognitive function.
- Decreased risk of infection.
- Anti-aging or reverse aging.
The center opened today and was graced by Ms. Em Ang. Mr. Jess Co, a.k.a. Mr. Chill flew in from Manila with Dr. Phiton Yu.
Other Uses for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
HBOT has been the secret to the optimum performance of many popular athletes. They use it for strengthening and endurance, conditioning before a game or event, as well as muscle. It is proven to be good after an event because it hastens the healing of injuries.
Meanwhile, oxygen therapy for geriatric care has been proven to reverse aging. It even corrects or mitigates pre-existing conditions.
In Manila, the center has already had patients who are babies and young children with genetic anomalies. A guardian is required to be with the child during treatment.
Health Requirements for Treatment
The Advanced Hyperbaric Healthcare Center requires a recent chest X-Ray and ECG result prior to treatment.
Before each session, the nurses on duty get the patient’s medical history, blood pressure, and oxygens levels. Moreover, each one should check with the in-house doctor who provides teleconsult.
Indoor Safety and Purified Air in the Center
At Advanced Hyperbaric Healthcare Center, the safety of their staff and patients is of their top priority.
That is the reason why the fully air-conditioned healthcare center has installed a state-of-the-art air purification system. This is on during operations times in order to clean the atmospheric air inside the building.
The system is proven effective in ridding the air of bacteria, viruses, molds, and other pathogens.
