Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is 100% oxygen administered in a pressurized environment. Regular oxygen is only 21%. HBOT therapy increases oxygen delivered to tissues and helps heal, repair, improve circulation, and stimulates growth of new blood vessels.*

Health Canada recognizes HBOT therapy to assist with many conditions including:

Embolisms (air or gas bubbles in the bloodstream, which may travel to the brain or lungs);
Earbon monoxide poisoning (from inhaling smoke or car exhaust)
Gas gangrene
Crush injury, Compartment Syndrome and other acute traumatic problems where blood flow is reduced or cut off (e.g., frostbite)
Decompression sickness (the bends) often used for divers
Enhancement of healing for wounds such as diabetic foot ulcers
Exceptional blood loss (anemia)
Intra-cranial abscess (an accumulation of pus in the brain)
Necrotizing soft tissue infections (flesh-eating disease)
Osteomyelitis (bone infection)
Delayed radiation injury (e.g., radiation burns that develop after cancer therapy)
Skin grafts and flaps that are not healing well; and
Thermal burns (e.g., from fire or electrical sources)

The therapy is also used to help:

Bell’s palsy
Cancer (blood cell count and nausea)
Cerebrovascular accidents/Stroke
Cerebral palsy (CP)
Fracture healing and bone grafting
Head, brain injury
Lyme disease
Multiple sclerosis
Peripheral nerve injury
Pseudomembranous colitis
Reflex sympathetic dystroph
Retinal artery insufficiency
Retinitis pigmentosa
Stroke rehabilitation / stroke recovery
Parkinson’s Disease
Wounds as a result of radiated skin

Our HBOT chamber is a multi-person chamber which is ideal for treating children. With this chamber, parents can sit and play with their children while oxygen is being administered.

Though HBOT is not a magic cure for the above conditions, it can help symptoms and in some cases improve quality of life.
