Many people ask me what is this hyperbaric chamber thing, today we’ll find out what it is and how it can benefit your health.
Hyperbaric Oxigen Treatment (HBOT) involves breathing 100 percent oxygen while occupying a sealed chamber that maintains atmospheric pressure 1 ½ to 3 times greater than normal. It is a treatment that has been used in one form or another since the 1600s. There are two types of hyperbaric chambers: monoplace, in which a single patient is treated, and multi-place with room for several patients and a nurse or other person inside to monitor patients and equipment.
In a monoplace, which is a clear plastic tube approximately seven feet (about 2 meters) in length, the patient relaxes on a padded table while the tube is gradually pressurized with pure oxygen. Sessions typically last from 30 minutes to two hours. Treatment may cause ear pops or mild discomfort that can be remedied by decreasing the pressure. Patients may feel tired and lightheaded following a hyperbaric oxygen treatment, but symptoms are usually mild and short-lived.
Multi-place hyperbaric oxygen treatment chambers can treat a dozen or more patients at the same time. Ambulatory patients sit in recliners; others are wheeled in on beds or gurneys with their intravenous lines or ventilators in place. All of a patient’s equipment goes into the chamber with him or her. Patients in multi-place chambers receive 100 percent oxygen through masks or close-fitting hoods.
