Welcome to HBOT of Florida

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a medical treatment in which the patient is entirely enclosed in a pressure chamber breathing 100% pure oxygen at greater than one atmosphere pressure. Air contains nearly 21% Oxygen, and approximately 78% Nitrogen. In hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO), the oxygen percentage breathed by the patient is nearly or actually 100%, almost five times more than in air. The pressure of the oxygen breathed by the patient in HBOT is usually more than 1.5 times greater than atmospheric pressure. HBOT can deliver nearly 15 times as much oxygen as there is in air at normal pressure.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy increases the amount of oxygen to all cells of the body, including the brain, up to 15 times the normal amount of oxygen. These high oxygen levels over a series of treatments have a positive effect on many organ systems. These effects can be a decrease in chronic inflammation of organ systems, deactivation and clearing of toxins, stimulation of damaged nerve and brain cells, increase in the killing of harmful bacteria, and growth of new capillary blood vessels. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy also has a positive effect on the body’s immune system. A recent Medical publication for the first time in the history of Science demonstrated the improvement in Chronic Brain Injuries with hyperbaric oxygen therapy in animals.
