Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Posted on Jan 13, 2012 in Technology

Overview  Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is breathing 100% oxygen while under increased atmospheric pressure. HBOT is a treatment that can be traced back to the 1600s. The first well-known chamber was built and run by a British clergyman named Henshaw. He built a structure called the domicilium that was used to treat a multitude of diseases.The chamber was pressurized with air or unpressurized using bellows. The idea of treating patients under increased pressure was continued by the French surgeon Fontaine, who built a pressurized, mobile operating room in 1879.Dr. Orville Cunningham, a...

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy for carbon monoxide poisoning

Posted on Aug 8, 2009 in Health & Wellness

The purpose of oxygen therapy for the treatment of carbon monoxide poisoning is to reduce the amount of carbon monoxide in the blood and restore the oxygen level to normal as quickly as possible.For hyperbaric oxygen therapy, the affected person lies down on a stretcher that slides into an acrylic tube about 7ft long and 25in. across. The pressure inside the tube is raised, and 100% oxygen is delivered under high pressure. Each treatment session lasts about 90 minutes. After treatment, the chamber is depressurized slowly while the person rests inside. What To Expect After Treatment A person...

Fri, Mar 20, 2009 (Reuters Health) – Kids with autism may benefit from a series of treatments in a pressurized chamber with boosted oxygen levels. The results of small trial indicate that hyperbaric oxygen therapy, as it’s called, improves language ability, social interaction, and other functions in such children. The trial involved 62 children, from 2 to 7 years of age, diagnosed with autistic dis order. Dr. Daniel A. Rossignol, from the International Child Development Resource Center in Melbourne, Florida, and colleagues, randomly assigned the children to 40 one-hour sessions...

We meet with a family whose child’s development is improving thanks to the benefits of oxygen therapy. Some are talking for the first time, and interacting with their families. There is new hope for autistic children treated with oxygen therapy in pressurized chambers. The 7-year-old child crawls into her play cave, nicknamed her blue tunnel. A therapist stays with her. A new study proves spending time in capsules at the Hyperbaric Medical Center helps autistic children....

WHAT IS OZONE? Ozone is a very energetic form of pure oxygen produced in nature. The new growth in rain forests and the plankton in the sea are continually producing ozone, which rises up into the stratosphere forming a layer which filters out a lot of harmful ultraviolet radiation. Ozone is also produced by industrial emissions, which does not rise up but causes smog and is harmful to humans and to plants. Ozone attaches to particles of pollutants and toxic waste in the atmosphere, oxidising them and thereby effectively neutralising them. Due to the enormous quantities of pollutants emitted...
