Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy
Q: What Is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?
A: Hyperbaric oxygen is a simple concept. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a medical treatment that is used to treat diverse series of illnesses including Diabetes, Heart conditions, Stroke, Brain traumatic injury, Neurodegenerative disorders, MS, Alzheimer , Diabetes, Fibromyalgia, Cancer and Autism. Some are approved indications by FDA, and some are off label. It may be the primary treatment for some disorders. In order to provide patients with hyperbaric oxygen therapy, a pressurized chamber is necessary. The patient is placed within the chamber, which is then compressed to the level ordered by the consulting hyperbaric physician, using pure oxygen.
Q: What is the mechanism of action?
A: The air we breathe contains 21% oxygen. By providing 100% oxygen in a pressurized chamber we are able to deliver 9-10 times that which can be provided by breathing. This "hyperbaric" (or high pressure) dose of oxygen offers distinct therapeutic benefits, Including increase in Circulation, Decrease in inflammation, Stimulating the Stem cells, and repairing the wounds and dead tissues, Balancing and augmenting the immune system against cancer. Studies show that it can kill the breast cancer, ovarian cancer and brain cancer cells and currently NIH is doing research on this particular usage. Also it is used successfully in in stroke, Parkinson disease and MS. We have seen disabled patients in our clinic that for the first time have started to walk immediately after the treatment.
Q: Where can I get that?
A; Pacific Medical Center of Hope is the only center in Fresno that has a chamber with capability of high pressures, and you DO NOT get claustrophobic since it is all glass like and you see your surroundings. The availability of the chamber, along with it’s technical sophisticated system has been a limiting factor to the conventional physicians, until now. As it shows more and more promises in treating patients it has even attracted conventional doctors and hospitals to pursue this modality more and more.
