San Diego Center for Hyperbaric Therapy is a freestanding facility dedicated to providing the highest quality care available using hyperbaric oxygen therapies.
Hyperbaric Therapy is a prescribed treatment that is approved by the FDA and AMA. This therapy is a medical treatment, which introduces 100% oxygen to the patient in a painless, relaxing atmosphere. HBOT uses controlled pressure in excess of the usual pressure in the atmosphere.
The administration of 100% pure oxygen through hyperbaric oxygen therapy increases the oxygen delivered 10 – 15 times more than what is delivered at normal atmospheric levels or at sea level. The HBOT procedure transports oxygen throughout the bodies tissues and increases the oxygen entering the bloodstream. By increasing the oxygen under controlled pressure the oxygen can reach tissue, bone, plasma, the central nervous system and the lymph that are not normally accessible to the red blood cells. The new blood vessels enhance blood flow and tissue growth, which accelerates the healing ability.
