San Diego Hyperbaric Treatment Center
At OxyHubs, we provide HBOT in a sealed, pressurized chamber. You are able to lie down or sit up while the procedure takes place. Oxygen enters your body and oxygen levels gradually increase. In addition, the pressure surrounding your body is slowly increased above normal atmospheric pressure simultaneously. When the two are combined, the oxygen is able to enter your blood stream quicker and efficiently. This results in your blood oxygen levels rising higher than they could with normal air pressure. The extra oxygen flows through your veins and arrives to your body tissues. While the procedure takes place you can watch television, read a book, listen to music, or do some other stable activity in the comfort of our recliners.
For Your Safety
Some medications will affect the response that your body has to HBOT. Therefore, before receiving this therapy you have to alert us of all of the medications you currently take. Additionally, a spark or flame can turn into a fire in a pure oxygen environment quickly. Despite the fact that only a small area contains pure oxygen there are certain items that we do not allow in the environment.
- All metal objects (e.g., jewelry)
- Matches and lighters
- Vaseline or any other petroleum-based products
- Most skin care products are petroleum based, so please check with the hyperbaric unit staff before using any lotion or other product prior to treatment.
HBOT treatments are designed to help in alleviating wounds and patients with autism, cancer and stroke.
