Hyperberic Oxygen Therapy
Most atmospheric air is comprised of roughly 21% oxygen and, of course, oxygen is necessary for the production of cellular energy within the mitochondria of every cell. The use of pure 100% oxygen in a high pressure atmosphere (HBOT) has been shown to accelerate the healing process.
The hyperbaric chamber has pure oxygen administered at pressures 1.5 – 3 times the normal atmospheric pressure with treatment times of 30 minutes. Administering oxygen at higher pressures causes up to 20 times more oxygen to be absorbed by the blood and transferred to injured organs and tissues. This speeds healing and recovery time in addition to providing other benefits.
Utopia Wellness offers Hyperbaric Oxygen for cancer in a comfortable upright chamber allowing the patient to stay in a seated position. This allows patients to feel less claustrophobic than with other chambers. We also provide the patient with an intercom to communicate with the staff should they feel the need to terminate the session. Most importantly, the patient is capable of ending the session themselves from within the chamber should they need to for any reason.
