Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) involves breathing in a pressurized room or tube.
This noninvasive and painless treatment helps oxygen reach damaged tissue so your body can support its own healing process.
Forum Health uses HBOT to enhance healing and fight infection after harm caused by cancer and related treatments.
When body tissue is injured, it may require more oxygen to heal. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy provides this extra oxygen naturally and with minimal side effects.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy involves breathing pure oxygen at a high pressure, which allows your lungs to gather much more oxygen than normally possible. When your blood carries this extra oxygen throughout your body, it stimulates the release of substances called growth factors and stem cells, which helps fight infection and induce wound healing.
