Hyperbaric Oxygen is a therapeutic treatment in which a patient inhales pure oxygen at elevated pressure conditions. Many diseases and all injuries are associated with a lack of oxygen in tissues, known as hypoxia. HBOT provides a safe and effective method to deliver oxygen to tissues in critical need. By correcting the availability of oxygen, the body and its tissues are able to heal and when possible recover normally. The role of oxygen in metabolism is beyond question, but research has now shown that oxygen is also critical to the regulation of at least 30 genes.
