Our Oxygen Treatment

The Centre's Oxygen Treatment (HBOT - Hyper Baric Oxygen Treatment) involves breathing pure oxygen at higher than atmospheric pressures in an enclosed chamber. This process causes oxygen to be absorbed by all body fluids and by all body cells and tissues, even those with blocked or reduced blood flow. This increased flow of oxygen stimulates and restores function to damaged cells and organs, including those of the liver and brain. A hyperbaric chamber is needed to allow the pressure around the body to be increased. The technology is very well established, in fact all commercial aircraft are hyperbaric chambers equipped with oxygen breathing systems.

 

" Every time you go up in an aeroplane you are sitting in a hyperbaric chamber. Hyperbaric is simply a term describing an increase in ambient pressure."

Professor Philip James MB ChB DIH Phd FFOM - Castle Craig Hospital
