Hyperbaric oxygen therapy isn't a well known or widely accepted form of wound care, but it might become so in the near future. The process is being perfected, and the following success stories are proof of that. These stories might sound like miracles, but the process of HBOT healing doesn't happen overnight.
HBOT is originally invented to recompress divers and describes the process of exposing the whole body to a much higher level of oxygen in a chamber. We all need oxygen to live, as well as heal and generate new healthy cells in all parts of our bodies.
The studies from Johns Hopkins Medicine shows that even coming in contact with purer oxygen on the outside, not just breathing it in, has huge benefits for the human body. The body has the ability to heal much faster when coming in contact with high levels of oxygen.
