Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT). Hyperbaric medicine, also known as hyperbaric oxygen therapy, is the medical use of oxygen at a higher than atmospheric pressure. Hyper means increased and baric relates to pressure. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) refers to intermittent treatment of the entire body with 100-percent oxygen at greater than normal atmospheric pressure. That pressure is defined as one atmosphere absolute (1 ATA). In the ambient atmosphere we normally breathe approximately 20 percent oxygen and 80 percent nitrogen. While undergoing HBOT, pressure is increased up to two times (2 ATA) in 100% oxygen. This increased pressure, combined with an increase in oxygen to 100 percent, dissolves oxygen in the blood plasma and in all body cells, tissues and fluids at up to 10 times normal concentration.
Non FDA-approved conditions that have been greatly affected and improved by hyperbaric oxygen therapy include Alzheimer's, arthritis, cancer, depression, fibromyalgia, and more.
