Hyperbaric Oxygen Tutorial


Think of hyperbaric oxygen therapy as a rehabilitation tool for the body. Just as you prescribe exercise, rest, medications, lifestyle changes, and physical therapy, we prescribe oxygen to augment the treatment protocol you’ve established for your patient. Working in tandem with your treatment methods and protocol, hyperbaric oxygen therapy uses oxygen as a drug to help and accelerate the body’s ability to heal.
