HBOT Therapy (Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy)
Application of oxygen at high-pressure level for medical treatment or Hyprbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) has been widely used in medical practice for more than 40 years. Russia became second motherland for HBOT due to the efforts of academician B. V. Petrovski, Member of Russian Academy of Sciences.
Russian HBOT industry is one of the largest in the world. Presently there are over 1200 HBOT providers and organizations in the country.
Initial notion about HBOT as a method that facilitates tissues oxygen supply is substantially expanded these days. Due to multiple scientific researches today we know that HBOT method allows restoring self-regulatory systems balance inside the human body. That makes multifaceted medical treatment of various disorders much more effective. At the same time HBOT facilitates medical effect of many pharmaceuticals as a supplementary method. Therefore hyperbaric medicine is used not only in intensive care and surgical practice but also virtually in all fields of clinical practice and medical experiments.
HBOT (Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy) is successfully applied in:
Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment is efficiently used for a long time in military surgical practice. HBOT is most commonly used to successfully rehabilitate wounded army personnel. Practically all military hospitals are equipped by hyperbaric chambers.
The one of the major hyperbaric oxygenation characteristic is the possibility to provide the prophylactic effect. Hyperbaric rooms are equipped also at sanatorium-and-spa institutions. Free procedures, comfortable conditions increase effectiveness of Hyprbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT).
Frequently, the fundamental illness do not demand hospital treatment. Treatment at the polyclinic gives the possibility for such patients to take hyperbaric sessions out-patiently.
The following indications are approved uses of hyperbaric oxygen therapy as defined by the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Committee.
