Oxygen Tolerance – Part Two – Cerebral / CNS Toxicity

Continued from the introduction, this is a form of toxicity or intolerance that affects the central nervous system including the spinal cord and the brain. In extreme cases it can lead to grand mal (generalized tonic-clonic seizure) like convulsions, and unconsciousness. These have no lasting effect and cause no lasting damage with no sequelae and… Continue reading Oxygen Tolerance – Part Two – Cerebral / CNS Toxicity

What’s it like? – The Hyperbaric Environment and Hyperbaric Administration of Oxygen

Multiplace Chamber Courtesy Hayden Dunstan Borrowing from previous articles reproduced here is a definition of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. HyperBaric Oxygen Therapy is described as the medical administration of pure or near pure oxygen at higher than atmospheric (Normobaric) pressure. As discussed in those articles, and explained previously, hyper-oxygenation is facilitated by an increased pressure differential… Continue reading What’s it like? – The Hyperbaric Environment and Hyperbaric Administration of Oxygen

Hypoxia – The Common Denominator in Disease, Injury and Ill Health

Image by Derrick Sherrill from Pixabay Very often the question is posed, "what can Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) treat?" If we answer with a list of conditions, it generally follows the UHMS (Undersea and Hyperbaric Medicine Society) guidelines with some added conditions depending on who you ask, which are referred to as emerging conditions, off… Continue reading Hypoxia – The Common Denominator in Disease, Injury and Ill Health

What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy – HBOT

Image by CRAIG D from Pixabay Rather than re-inventing the wheel so to speak, today seems a good day to share another video lecture preambled by the contents of the page entitled, What is hyperbaric oxygen therapy, or HBOT as it is better known and commonly referred to. It is often beneficial to hear something… Continue reading What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy – HBOT

Dementia Stroke and Neuro-Degenerative Disorders

Image by VSRao from Pixabay  It may seem a little clumsy to group these conditions under a single heading as they differ greatly in many ways in their onset, direct causes and individual pathologies. However, as far as HBOT and complementary therapy goes, specifically oxygen therapy, they share one commonality among them, hypoxia (low oxygen, or lack of… Continue reading Dementia Stroke and Neuro-Degenerative Disorders

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Associated Conditions

Image by Alf-Marty from Pixabay Drawing on work by neuro-scientist Dr Joe Dispenza, PTSD comes into focus today. In Dr Joe's works, he details how he describes the brains response to external events in life. In brief, he writes that when an event occurs externally, our brains respond to this event and a chemical state is generated in… Continue reading Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Associated Conditions

Cerebral Palsy

Image by Raman Oza from Pixabay  This is one of those topics very often best left to the likes of professors to deal with owing to the controversial nature of the conditions thought by some to cause Cerebral Palsy (CP). In the opinion of many, CP originates at the point of birth or just before as some form… Continue reading Cerebral Palsy

Wound Healing

Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com Presenting a slightly shorter read today we address wound healing, especially problematic wound healing. We have refrained from posting graphic images of before and after wound scenarios, but these are available. In many books and papers there are comparative images taken before and after HBOT directly illustrating the improvement. Empirical… Continue reading Wound Healing

Altitude, The Hyperoxic Hypoxia Paradox, and The Common Sense Paradox

Photo by Pawan Yadav on Pexels.com You may ask what altitude has to do with HBOT. The answer is simple enough, the same physics apply to altitude considerations as they do to increasing pressure considerations. Note: Hyper-baric is the increase of ambient pressure and hypo-baric is the opposite, the reduction of ambient pressure. The physics… Continue reading Altitude, The Hyperoxic Hypoxia Paradox, and The Common Sense Paradox

Anti Ageing & HBOT

Photo by Edu Carvalho on Pexels.com I guess this counts as one of the few vanity treatments which extend a little beyond the core therapeutic treatments we promote. Or does it? Many of the core therapies we support the use of HBOT for, include neurodegenerative conditions such as dementia, recovery form injury, improvement in cognitive… Continue reading Anti Ageing & HBOT
