Hyperbaric Chamber

What is hyperbaric oxygen therapy?

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized room or tube. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a well-established treatment for decompression sickness, a hazard of scuba diving. Other conditions treated with hyperbaric oxygen therapy include serious infections, bubbles of air in your blood vessels, and wounds that won't heal as a result of diabetes or radiation injury.

In a hyperbaric oxygen therapy chamber, the air pressure is increased to three times higher than normal air pressure. Under these conditions, your lungs can gather more oxygen than would be possible breathing pure oxygen at normal air pressure.

Your blood carries this oxygen throughout your body. This helps fight bacteria and stimulate the release of substances called growth factors and stem cells, which promote healing.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is used to treat several medical conditions. 

  • Anemia, severe

  • Brain abscess

  • Bubbles of air in your blood vessels (arterial gas embolism)

  • Burn

  • Decompression sickness

  • Carbon monoxide poisoning

  • Crushing injury

  • Deafness, sudden

  • Gangrene

  • Infection of skin or bone that causes tissue death

  • Nonhealing wounds, such as a diabetic foot ulcer

  • Radiation injury

  • Skin graft or skin flap at risk of tissue death

The evidence is insufficient to support claims that hyperbaric oxygen therapy can effectively treat the following conditions:

  • AIDS/HIV

  • Allergies

  • Alzheimer's disease

  • Arthritis

  • Asthma

  • Autism

  • Bell's palsy

  • Brain injury

  • Cancer
