Our bodies' tissues require an adequate oxygen supply to function optimally. Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy in Beverly Hills enhances your body's ability to carry oxygen through the blood to promote tissue healing and fight off infections.
What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy happens in a sealed, pressurized chamber with two to three times more air pressure than outside air. The specialized chamber delivers 100% pure oxygen, allowing you to breathe much more oxygen into your cells than the air within the environment, which is generally packed with nitrogen, pesticides, heavy metals, and other pollutants. The high-pressure atmosphere of the hyperbaric oxygen chamber passively drives the oxygen through your tissues into the blood, allowing it to carry a more significant amount of oxygen to your body parts. This helps repair injured tissues, fight infections, increase energy levels, and more.
