Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) involves breathing almost pure oxygen in a small chamber. This therapy helps by increasing the atmospheric pressure in the body. It’s possible to micronize the oxygen molecule into the blood plasma instead of the haemoglobin. Haemoglobin has a specific amount of oxygen it can absorb, then after a certain point, it is maxed out. But when enough pressure is applied to the body, the plasma can absorb up to five times the normal oxygen amount which allows for carbonation of the blood plasma. This promotes an accelerated regeneration of cells throughout the body which attributes to rapid recovery and repair of body tissues.

A: There are several stages during a typical treatment.

  1. The first stage is compression in which the chamber is pressurized to the prescribed pressure, most commonly 2.0 atmospheres absolute (the equivalent of 33 feet below the surface of the ocean).
  2. The chamber is maintained at this pressure (depth) and patients breathe 100 percent oxygen via oxygen mask .
  3. Clients are given two air breaks during this oxygen-breathing period where they can take off the oxygen mask if treatment is 90 minutes. N0 air break is required if treatment is for 60 minutes.
  4. Depending on the duration of the treatment, after the oxygen periods are finished, the chamber is depressurized and the treatment is finished.

A: At the start of the treatment session, oxygen starts flowing in through the oxygen mask, and pressure in the chamber gradually increase. You may start feeling a fullness sensation in the ears, similar to ascending or descending in an airplane. This fullness should only last about 10-15 minutes and our experienced staff will guide you to relieve any ear pressure.

Once treatment pressure is reached, you can relax and just breathe normally. Near the end of the treatment session, the hyperbaric technician will gradually decrease the pressure in the chamber which takes about 10 minutes.

During this decompression stage, it is common for clients to experience a slight popping sensation in the ears as a result of the change in pressure. Majority of the clients find hyperbaric oxygen therapy sessions to be relaxing.

A: No. The majority of our clients find hyperbaric oxygen therapy sessions to be relaxing. Many patients use this as a time to relax, take a nap or read. You may experience some mild ear discomfort similar to the sensation you would experience while flying, diving or driving up a mountain. However, HBOT should not be painful. If you do experience any earaches during treatment, inform attending chamber operator immediately. Our chamber operators can help to alleviate pain by instructing you and equalising pressures within the ear alongside adjusting the pressure of the chamber to resolve the issue.

A: Be Superhuman offers a initial consultation service with a face-to-face assessment for all new clients to determine if therapy suitable for each patient.

The process allows our team to fully understand your individual medical circumstances and determine the appropriate Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy programme for you, based on your medical history and latest clinical research.

The initial consultation is essential to provide you with safe and effective tailored treatment programme.

A: A typical treatment lasts between 60 – 90 minutes, depending on your condition.

A: The number and frequency of treatments required varies with the specific condition that is being treated. Some conditions, might be treated in five visits. For many conditions, one treatment a day (Monday through Friday) is given for a total of 20 to 30 treatments, usually a total of four to six weeks.

To effectively treat medical conditions, hyperbaric oxygen therapy is used as part of a comprehensive treatment plan and administered with other therapies and drugs that fit your individual needs.

A: Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is performed under hyperbaric oxygen chamber operator’s supervision. It is non-invasive therapy with very few rare potential side effects and has very few contraindications. The risks will be discussed with you before you sign your consent form for therapy.

A: We advice loose-fitting cotton clothing, and avoid cosmetics, perfumes, hair sprays, deodorants and jewellery. The chamber operators need to know if any medications, including non prescription drugs, are being taken by the patient, and patients are advised not to take alcohol or carbonated drinks for four hours prior to treatment.

Both nicotine and caffeine cause blood vessels to constrict, and may reduce the effectiveness of hyperbaric oxygen therapy. We strongly advise avoidance of all tobacco during the period of your treatments and thereafter if at all possible.

Please have a light, nutritious meal one to two hours before your scheduled treatment. If you have diabetes, your blood glucose will be checked before and after each treatment, because hyperbaric oxygen treatments can occasionally lower blood glucose levels.
