Frequently Asked Questions

Can I overdose on oxygen?

Added enriched oxygen does need to be monitored. Ask your trained hyperbaric professional. Of course, if enriched oxygen is not being supplemented into the chamber, this is not an issue.

Is Hyperbarics safe?

Hyperbarics has a very good safety record. Many hyperbaric centers report only mild ear discomfort as a contraindication to therapy. Such a discomfort is similar to the ear pressure felt when ascending or descending in altitude. These discomforts may be minimized by descending at a slower rate. Discuss these concerns with your trained hyperbaric technician.

Does insurance cover Hyperbarics?

In the United States, there are certain indications which insurance covers. This includes gangrene, radiation burns, carbon monoxide poisoning and decompression sickness. Traditionally insurance does not cover these treatments for the conditions we are using it for in our office.

Where can I go for treatments?

We offer HBOT treatments in our office as well as a rental or purchase option for the ability to do the treatments at home.

How many treatments are needed?

Each case is different and the doctors may regulate protocols, depending on a client’s disease, prognosis and improvements through the course of therapy.

Is hyperbarics good for children?

Yes, hyperbarics yields wonderful results with children. In fact, research with children suffering from brain-injuries and genetic disorders shows positive results and great promise.

What is Hyperbarics used for?

Traditionally HBOT has been used for diabetic foot wounds, air and gas embolism, carbon monoxide poisoning and smoke inhalation, gas gangrene, thermal burns, decompression sickness and acute mountain sickness. Due to the healing effects of oxygen therapy HBOT is now also used for cerebral palsy, brain injuries, multiple sclerosis, ALS, anemia, wound and scar healing, post stroke care, post surgical care, improved performance, dementia and bells palsy… just to name a few.

How does hyperbarics work?

Hyperbarics is a technology in which the air pressure in the environment is increased. When a person’s body is placed in a more pressure environment, it absorbs more oxygen molecules per volume of compressed air. The body normally transports oxygen via the hemoglobin of the red blood cells. By increasing the air pressure, oxygen is then driven into the body’s fluids, allowing a super-saturation of tissues and organs with oxygen. The increased pressure infuses the body with oxygen, even reaching injuries with damaged circulation. An example of this is a blood clot in the brain (stroke).

Is hyperbarics good for the elderly?

Most definitely. Hyperbarics is great for those in their later years. Hyperbarics provides an immeasurable boost which counteracts the signs of aging. In fact, new research indictes that hyperbaric oxygenation slows Apoptosis (cell death).

Can I get in a chamber with my apprehensive child?

Yes, the larger hyperbaric chambers can accommodate two people and you as a parent will derive the health benefits along with your child. In fact, a couple could be in the large chambers together receiving mutual benefits.
