A hyperbaric machine is a type of medical equipment that provides hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) to individuals who may benefit from increased levels of oxygen in their bodies.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy involves breathing in 98% oxygen in a pressurized environment, inside a hyperbaric chamber. This increases the amount of oxygen in the blood and tissues, which can help promote healing and improve various health conditions.
The benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy may include:
Increased oxygen levels can help promote healing by stimulating the production of new blood vessels and increasing the growth of new tissue.
HBOT can help improve circulation by increasing the amount of oxygen in the blood and promoting the delivery of oxygen to tissues and organs throughout the body.
HBOT can help fight certain infections by increasing the amount of oxygen available to the body’s immune system.
HBOT has been used to treat a wide range of medical conditions, including diabetic foot ulcers, radiation injury, carbon monoxide poisoning, and more.
Some athletes use HBOT to enhance their performance by increasing the amount of oxygen available to their muscles during workouts.
