What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)?
HBOT is the administration of 100 percent oxygen in a pressurized environment. The combination of added pressure and oxygen significantly increases the amount of oxygen in the bloodstream and offers the following benefits:
~Preservation of injured tissue
~Delivery of oxygen to injured tissue
~Faster healing rates
~Improved control of certain infections
~Growth of new blood vessels
