Hyperbaric OxygenTherapy

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Abbreviated (HBOT), also known as Hyperbaric medicine,  is a medical treatment which enhances the body’s natural healing process by delivering oxygen under pressure, increasing the oxygen content in the blood and in the cerebral spinal fluid, flooding the tissues with oxygen.



How does HBOT work?

Hyperoxygenation - By increasing the oxygen dissolved in the plasma (the liquid portion of the blood), the lymphatic fluid, and the cerebrospinal fluid, HBOT increases the oxygen available to damaged tissues, stimulating healing.
Neovascularization - HBOT stimulates blood vessel formation (angiogenesis) and collagen (connective tissue) formation in areas that were previously resistant due to lack of oxygen.

Hyperoxia enhanced antimicrobial activity
– HBOT reduces or eliminates the effects of toxic substances, bacteria, viruses, and yeast by increasing the tissue oxygen levels.
Hyperoxia enhanced immune response
- HBOT activates the white blood cells to fight infection, promoting resistance to infection, as well as wound healing. HBOT also helps to reduce inflammation and oxidative stress.


What is the difference between Mild HBOT Oxygen and Hard HBOT Hyperbaric Oxygen?

Mild HBOT is hyperbaric oxygen therapy at low pressures, typically to 1.3 ATA – 1.5 ATA (atmospheres absolute) or 4.5 psi. Mild HBOT is available in portable hyperbaric chambers at 1.3 ATA – 1.5 ATA with compressed room air.

Hard HBOT is hyperbaric oxygen therapy at higher pressures, typically above 1.5 ATA (atmospheres-absolute). These pressures are achieved in a variety of  chambers currently available on the market, to include monoplace, multiplace with 100% oxygen.

What is the difference in clinical outcomes between mild HBOT & hard HBOT?

While hard HBOT results in greater oxygen saturation in the tissues, some conditions respond better to mild HBOT. Please contact your doctor regarding which type of HBOT is best for you.

What is Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?
 Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (mHBOT)  is a therapy provided at Miracle Hyperbaric in which a patient is placed inside a soft inflatable chamber that is filled to deliver
ambient  air (about 25% oxygen)  at elevated  pressures (about 1.3 ATA).  The typical pressure reaches between (1.1ATA) and 1.3(ATA) atmospheres, which can also be expressed as 3 to 4 PSI (Pounds Per Square Inch) This is roughly the equivalent of 11 feet below sea level.  The patients usually breathe oxygenated air through an oxygen concentrator which typically delivers  85% to 96% oxygen. FDA approved oxygen concentrators for human consumption in HBOT are regularly monitored for purity (+/- 1%) and flow (10 to 15 liters per minute outflow pressure). An audible alarm will sound if the purity ever drlops below 80%. 


How does Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Work?
Mild Hyperbaric Therapy (mHBOT) is a safe, effective way to get more oxygen into the body at the cellular level by using pressurized air chambers. According to Henry’s Law of Physics, an increase in atmospheric pressure allows for more gas to be dissolved into any given liquid.  Henry’s law is displayed in every can of soda.  When soda is canned at the factory, it is put under pressure so that more carbon dioxide can be dissolved into the soda, causing it to be carbonated.  When the can is opened, the pressure is released.  Without the pressure to keep the gas dissolved, the soda will become flat in a few hours.
This same principal applies to oxygen and plasma, (the liquid part of blood).  When the body is under pressure, plasma, cerebral spinal fluid, and synovial fluid, will dissolve more oxygen than they would if they were not under pressure.  Not only does this increase the amount of available oxygen to the tissues, it allows oxygen to reach areas of the body that would normally be difficult to reach

 What Chambers are used at this center?

Miracle Hyperbaric Therapy Center carries FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approved Class II medical devices and requires a prescription in order to receive treatments or purchase. We are proud to feature the Vitaeris 320 hyperbaric chamber for oxygen therapy.  It  boasts a roomy  33” inflated diameter that comfortably seats two.  Five windows have been incorporated into a urethane shell and a large top loading entry allows patient placement using a lift system if necessary.  Specifically designed for the clinic is the functional part of our practice.   While in it, you can relax, listen to music, read, use your mobile device  or simply nap while your body absorbs the ambient air and beneficial oxygen therapy. Don’t forget your favorite pillow or blanket.

 Is HBOT safe?
Yes, HBOT Chambers is incredibly safe.  Since the Miracle Hyperbaric uses mild chambers (mHBOT) filtered ambient air, with the addition of concentrated oxygen  at lower pressure then the larger medical unit, they can be used more regularly and are NOT flammable.  A member of our trained staff constantly monitors each patient to ensure comfort and safety. Once inside the chamber, patients are able to maintain full visual and verbal communication with our staff. For added assurance, our hyperbaric chambers have a dual way communication device and can be deflated from the inside of the chamber.

The majority of Miracle Hyperbaric clients will report a pleasant, comfortable experience.  In addition, mHBOT can safely be combined with most other therapies.  Always remember to consult your doctor before starting any new treatment. Patients inside the chamber may notice discomfort inside their ears as a pressure difference develops between their middle ear and the chamber atmosphere.  This can be relieved by the Valsalva maneuver or by “jaw wiggling”. Such a discomfort is similar to the ear pressure felt when ascending or descending in altitude. The patient has the ability to deflate the chamber to minimize the discomfort. Patients with Upper repertory infections or high fevers should refrained until authorized by their physician before mHBOT treatments begins.


How many treatments are needed?

The standard treatment protocol in each case is different and doctors regulate them depending on a patient’s disease, prognosis and improvements through the course of therapy. Many doctors recommend an initial group of 20-40 sessions, one or two per day, for 60 to 90 minutes each. A second round of sessions is usually recommended after a short break. Some patients require hundreds of sessions over a period of years. Please contact your doctor to discuss the best protocol for your condition.


Is Hyperbaric good for children?

Yes, Hyperbaric yields wonderful results with children. In fact, research with children suffering from brain injuries and genetic disorders shows positive results and great promise.


Is Hyperbaric good for the elderly?

Most definitely.  HBOT is great for those in their later years. HBOT provides an immeasurable boost which counteracts the signs of aging. In fact, new research indicates that hyperbaric oxygenation slows Apoptosis (cell death).


What if I’m healthy but want to do Hyperbaric for sport, fitness and wellness?

Mild Hyperbaric is used by people from all walks of life, including professional athletes to mountain climbers. As a competitive edge used  for reducing muscle fatigue and the buildup of lactic acid. Celebrities use it for anti-ageing and stress relieving, long distance travelers to pain managers.
