What is hyperbaric oxygen therapy?
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is the uptake of pure oxygen under increased pressure used to enhance the acceleration of the body's natural ability to heal from traumas, diseases, and other afflictions.
Why hyperbaric oxygen treatment (HBOT) is important
Oxygen is the most basis and critical element of life. Used appropriately, it can mean the difference between life and death, coma and mental alertness, paralysis and movement, illness and health.
Treating neurological and cardiac patients with HBOT
HBOT is widely recognized among leading international medical experts as a proven treatment for patients with some of the most debilitating neurological conditions, including stroke, traumatic brain injury, cerebral palsy, and coma. Research indicates HBOT makes a critical difference in the pace of recovery for many patients.
HBOT is rapidly becoming an additional prescription for patients suffering heart attacks or other heart-related illnesses. HBOT results in earlier relief of chest pain, an increase of the heart's blood-pumping capacity and improved ECG readings in many cases. The American Heart Association endorses its use.
HBOT comes to Marin and Northern California
Through the efforts of Todd S. Kaufmann, founder of the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Centers of Northern California, HBOTC is among the leading providers of HBOT in the country. In making HBOT more easily available to patients, HBOTC has become the most important resource for hyperbaric oxygen treatment in the Pacific West.
