Hyperbaric oxygen treatments (HBOT) use pure oxygen to enhance the body's natural ability to heal. It encompasses 100% oxygen under two to three times greater pressure than atmospheric pressure. This increased pressure causes a 10 to 15 fold increase in plasma oxygen concentration with a resultant increase in tissue oxygenation. This cannot be duplicated with topical O2 treatment. It is extremely safe and effective when administered by qualified professionals.

HBOT is gaining support. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has continued to view hyperbaric medicine as cost-effective in limb salvage and has recently increased the covered indications for HBOT.
