MILD HYPERBARIC OXYGEN THERAPY

Logo Scottburgh Hyperbaric Chamber.png

Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (mHBOT) involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized environment.

mHBOT is a well-established treatment for decompression sickness, a potential risk of scuba diving. Other conditions treated with mHBOT include serious infections, bubbles of air in your blood vessels, and wounds that may not heal as a result of diabetes or radiation injury.

In a mHBOT chamber, the air pressure is increased two to three times higher than normal air pressure. Under these conditions, your lungs can gather much more oxygen than would be possible breathing pure oxygen at normal air pressure.

When your blood carries this extra oxygen throughout your body, this helps fight bacteria and stimulate the release of substances called growth factors and stem cells, which promote healing.

 

Known Physiological benefits of mHBOT are:

  • Better energy levels

  • Improved tissue regeneration 

  • Improved tissue function

  • Reduced inflammation and related pain

  • Enhanced immune system function

  • Better antioxidant protection to help promote healthy ageing

WHY IT'S DONE

Aging and well-being

If you are looking to reduce ageing and enhance your beauty, our mHBOT will help you with antioxidant protection, healthy ageing and tissue regeneration from swelling or damaged skin.

mHBOT is also used to improve Post-Covid 19 Symptom.

Injury & Performance

Many sport athletes use mHBOT to improve their energy levels or recovery from an intense sports training session or an injury that followed (muscle, tendon or bone injury).

If you are a physically active person you may enjoy benefits of an improved immune function and quick tissue generation, ensuring that you can be back on track much faster. mHBOT can give you this.

HOW DOES IT WORK

mHBOT is a simple, non-invasive and painless therapy which most patients find comfortable and relaxing. You will be treated in a secure and comfortable purpose built chamber with a trained operator present to operate the barochamber.

On entering it is recommended that you wear comfortable clothing and leave any jewellery or watches outside. No smoking materials, matches or lighters are allowed in the chamber.

You can bring your smartphone, laptop or tablet inside the chamber.

The treatment session is conducted in three phases:

  1. Compression:

Once the chamber is closed, there will be some noise as the pressure increases. You will feel fullness in your ears similar to when descending in an aeroplane. You will have been taught how to avoid discomfort by clearing or ‘equalising’ your ears. As soon as the chamber pressure increases, you will need to start making your ears ‘pop’. There are several ways to do this and the chamber attendant will find the best way that suits you. Some people find that swallowing is sufficient. If you develop any discomfort inform the attendant and the rate of compression will be reduced. 

2.Therapy:

On reaching the desired pressure (usually 1.3 to 1.5 ata) the client places an oxygen delivery device over the head and breathes oxygen for the duration of the session. The therapy begins when the pressure reaches the prescribed level. You may then rest, sleep, read or use your electronic device. The oxygen delivery device can be removed occasionally and the chamber can be decompressed at any time if necessary.

3.Decompression:

After the amount of time has elapsed the attendant will let you know when the therapy is complete and the pressure will be lowered slowly, at a rate that is comfortable. A session usually lasts about 40min and can be repeated daily. If a patient is receiving two therapy a day, the second therapy follows the first after a three to four hour break outside the chamber. A patient receiving one therapy per day will spend about 45min at the treatment centre.

ARE THEY ANY CONTRAINDICATIONS?

The most common side effect is discomfort to the ears caused by pressure changes. To minimize the risk, patients must equalize their ears during pressurization. Some patients may feel tired and dizzy after using the hyperbaric chamber for the first time. It`s a good signal as Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy will speeds up the metabolism of our body, just like people feel tired after a long run. They are usually good signs of indicating detoxification.

 

It is strongly recommended that you never use the chamber while:

-If you have a cold or flu symptoms.

-If you have rhinitis or otitis media (runny nose or ear infection.)

-If you are pregnant.

Right of admission reserved.

Anyone using the mHBOT chamber must sign in the indemnity form before.
