Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)
WHAT IS HBOT?
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is the use of oxygen as a medical treatment in a safe, slightly pressurized environment. The specialized treatment takes place under highly controlled conditions and results in a broad variety of positive affects at the body’s cellular level.
High levels of oxygen consumed in the chamber dissolve into all the body’s fluids, including plasma and central nervous system fluids. Once consumed, this oxygen stimulates the levels of DNA present in each cell, helping to substantially accelerate the healing process.
Increased pressure allows the oxygen to saturate blood plasma, increasing oxygen levels in all organs of the body, reaching inflamed tissue and supporting optimal cellular regeneration and organ functionality.
IS THIS A SAFE AND REGULATED TREATMENT?
HBOT is an FDA-regulated process and the treatment takes place in a controlled environment to ensure patients are safe as they experience a change in atmospheric pressure and heightened levels of oxygen.
We use an FDA-approved steel chamber capable of treating at pressures from 1.3-3.0 ATA. We are the only clinic in Central Oregon specializing only in regenerative medicine and offering HBOT in a 3.0 ATA hard shell.
WHAT TYPES OF CONDITIONS ARE TREATED BY HBOT?
Dr. Payson Flattery is considered an expert physician in regenerative medicine and is utilizing Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy with patients resulting in positive outcomes.
The combination of our experienced stem cell replacement therapies and platelet-rich-plasma injections with HBOT has a potentiating effect for excellent results. These dual modalities are the future of medicine for supportive treatments of degenerative conditions including neurological disease, sports injuries and stroke.
HAVE THE RESULTS OF HYPERBARIC OXYGEN THERAPY BEEN PROVEN?
HBOT has been demonstrated in clinical trials to enhance the body’s ability to increase immune responses while regenerating and repairing tissue, tendons, and cellular damage. Bend Regenerative Medicine is embracing HBOT technology in conjunction with other therapies that enhance your body’s strong ability to heal itself.
HOW DOES HBOT WORK?
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy treatment 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 O2 delivery to the tissue.
Increased pressure and oxygen delivery from the HBOT chamber allows for oxygen to dissolve and saturate the blood plasma which yields a broad variety of positive physiological, biochemical and cellular effects. It’s a noninvasive therapy that increases oxygen levels to all organs of the body. The patient simply lies down in the spacious chamber with a clear window and breathes normally during a typical 60 to 90-minute treatment. The staff is always nearby and easy to contact.
The FDA has studied and approved HBOT for the following conditions:
- Air or gas embolism
- Decompression sickness
- Carbon monoxide poisoning
- Intracranial abscess
- Tissue Repair
- Arterial insufficiency
- Radiation tissue damage
- Skin grafts and flaps
- Thermal burns
- Crush injuries, acute trauma
- Necrotizing soft tissue infections
- Exceptional blood loss anemia
- Gas gangrene
The following conditions are being safely treated with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy in the U.S. and worldwide by physicians using it in an “off label” capacity.
- Brain Injury
- Concussion, TBI and brain injuries
- Post-operative healing
- Metabolic Syndrome
- Bell’s palsy
- Spinal cord injury
- Peripheral nerve damage
- Bone fractures
- Organ transplants
- Muscle injury
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Diabetes Injury
- Cancer and Radiation Injury
- Rheumatic diseases
BEND REGENERATIVE MEDICINE USES OXYHEALTH CHAMBERS
OxyHealth’s HBOT chambers are the most widely used chambers worldwide, utilized by over 3,000 physicians. They are the only chambers approved by the International Olympic Committee. Over 500 NFL, MLB, NBA, PGA, MMA and Olympic athletes, in addition to their medical training staff, exclusively utilized OxyHealth for their recovery and physical health.
