What is it?

Hyperbaric medicine is one of the medical disciplines that are  (developing in full swing) in full development internationally. Its physical and biological principles, simple and very solid, are widely verified and described in the extensive existing bibliography. They could be summarized as follows:

The air we breathe contains approximately 21% oxygen at sea level, being sufficient quantity to meet the needs of the human body. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy – OHB – is based on obtaining high partial oxygen pressures by breathing pure oxygen inside a hyperbaric chamber at a pressure higher than atmospheric pressure. 

Therefore, OHB is a non-invasive medical treatment based on breathing pure oxygen – at a saturation level of 100% – inside a pressurized chamber. 

Thanks to hyperbaric oxygen therapy, the blood carries about 20 times more oxygen than through our usual breathing. In addition, instead of being transported by red blood cells, oxygen circulates freely through the blood; thus,  it accesses places where the oxygen we breathe normally does not arrive, improving the overall functioning of our organism.
