Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) can serve as a adjunctive treatment for cardiology patients. The use of HBOT to precondition or treat patients with cardiac problems can lead to improved myocardial function after surgical or non-surgical procedures, reducing the length of intensive care stay and limiting complications.

How hyperbarics can complement your care?

  • Decreases re-perfusion injury
  • Stimulates angiogenesis
  • Enhances stem cell proliferation from the bone marrow and migration to the area of injury
  • Improve mitochondrial function 
  • Decreases inflammation

What are the benefits of HBOT?


Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy improves the quality of life for the patient in many areas when standard treatment isn’t working

Can HBOT help you?


Yes. It can benefit conditions where low oxygen levels (hypoxia) and inflammation are present

The Oxygen for Life


Oxygen can be used therapeutically for a wide range of conditions where tissues have been damaged by oxygen deprivation
