Hyperbaric Medicine Center

Our unique clinical laboratory achieves various altitudes, depths, and/or temperatures precisely using a precision multi-place hypo/hyperbaric environmental chamber.

Our Focus

  • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) infuses 100% oxygen at pressures up to three times greater than normal via the lungs, blood, and tissues
  • HBOT speeds healing by increasing oxygen available to body tissues
  • High oxygen pressure in the blood due to HBOT allows body tissues and fluids greater oxygen absorption
  • How does HBOT produce beneficial effects?
    • Hyperoxygenation of plasma and tissues
    • Increases formation of therapeutic oxygen-free radicals
    • Mitigation of ischemia and reperfusion injury
    • Induces and mobilizes increased stem cell activity
    • Induces angiogenesis, neovascularization, and osteogenesis
    • Restoration of normal/elevated oxygen tension in bone
    • Improves collagen production
    • Reduces fibrosis within radiation fields
    • Increases leukocyte and macrophage activity
    • Enhances neutrophil-mediated phagocytosis
    • Augments active cell wall transport of antibiotics
    • Inhibits growth of bacteria and anaerobic oganisms
