Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) is a mode of therapy that systematically delivers 100 percent oxygen at pressures two to three times greater than normal atmospheric pressure.  There is no significant oxygen absorption through the skin or wounds, so dressings stay intact during treatments.

Hyperbaric Oxygen TherapyHyperbaric oxygen therapy, or “HBO”, is a medical treatment in which a patient breathes 100% oxygen while increased atmospheric pressure (generally 2 atm) in a hyperbaric chamber. The purpose of breathing 100% oxygen under pressure is to dissolve more oxygen into the bloodstream which accelerates the body’s natural healing process.
