Abstract

Hyperbaric oxygen treatment (HBOT) has for centuries been used to improve or cure disorders involving hypoxia and ischemia, by enhancing the amount of dissolved oxygen in the plasma and thereby increasing Oxygen delivery to the tissue. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) involves breathing almost pure oxygen in a special room or small chamber that is pressurized to greater than sea level pressure. Also, wounds and infections that have not responded to other treatment may respond to HBOT by reducing the need of amputation in people with diabetes foot ulcers. The body tissues need oxygen to function and additional oxygen can help damaged tissue heal. Oxygen at high pressure can enhanced tissue functions and fights infection under certain conditions.
