Why it's done

Your body's tissues need an adequate supply of oxygen to function. When tissue is injured, it requires even more oxygen to survive. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy increases the amount of oxygen your blood can carry. An increase in blood oxygen temporarily restores normal levels of blood gases and tissue function to promote healing and fight infection.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is used to treat several medical conditions. Your doctor may suggest hyperbaric oxygen therapy if you have one of the following conditions:

  • Aging

  • Anemia, severe

  • Anxiety and Depression

  • Attention Problems

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

  • Autoimmune Diseases

  • Brain abscess

  • Bubbles of air in your blood vessels (arterial gas embolism)

  • Burns

  • Crushing injury

  • Deafness, sudden

  • Gangrene

  • Infection of skin or bone that causes tissue death

  • Lymes Disease
