The proven benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) are:
- HBOT speeds up wound healing by promoting the growth of new capillaries, (angiogenesis), and consequently, the growth of new healthy tissue.
- HBOT reduces infection by killing bacteria directly, by increasing the capacity of white blood cells to fight infection, and by eliminating the waste products of bacterial invasion.
- HBOT enhances the effect of some antibiotics.
- HBOT reduces the swelling that develops as a consequence of infection, poor circulation and injury.
