The history of hyperbaric therapy is closely linked to underwater diving, which is thought to date back to 4500 years BC. It all started in Britain in 1662 when Mr. Henshaw used a pressurized sealed chamber to treat his patients’ ailments. In 1830 France in turn became the leader in hyperbaric medicine, with Fontaine, a French surgeon, designing the first mobile chamber for this purpose in 1877.
In America, the first hyperbaric chamber would be built in Ontario in 1860. From 1950-1960, it was reported to produce tremendous benefits in a variety of areas of application, including cases of carbon monoxide poisoning. Over the past fifteen years, the angiogenic properties of hyperbaric therapy have ranked among the
leading high tech treatment processes.
Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (mHBOT) is a natural therapy in which a person is exposed to increased atmospheric pressure inside an inflatable chamber. The typical pressure reaches between 1.1 and 1.4 atmospheres, which can be expressed as 1-4 pounds per square inch. The increase in pressure allows more oxygen to reach the body’s cells, delivering a multitude of healing and therapeutic benefits.
Conditions typically treated with hyperbarics traditionally have been:
Air or Gas Embolism
Central Retinal Artery Occlusion
Carbon Monoxide Poisoning and Smoke Inhalation
Crush Injury, Compartment Syndrome, and other Acute Traumatic Ischemias
Necrotizing Soft Tissue Infections
Radiation Tissue Damage
Skin Grafts and Flaps
Idiopathic Sudden Deafness
Conditions that have been demonstrated to responded well to MHBOT include:
Autism Spectrum Disorder
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (RSD)
Concussion / Head Injury
Degenerative Disc Disease
Diabetes / Peripheral Neuropathy
Drug and Alcohol
Fetal alcohol Syndrome
