Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment Q & A

What is hyperbaric oxygen treatment?

Hyperbaric oxygen treatment involves breathing in pure oxygen while you lie in a pressurized chamber. In the special hyperbaric oxygen chamber, air pressure is 2-3 times greater than normal.

The increased pressure allows your lungs to take in greater amounts of oxygen, which increases oxygen levels in your blood. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is known for treating decompression sickness in scuba divers. 

The extra oxygen in your blood also benefits other health conditions by helping to kill bacteria and stimulating the substances in your body that support cell and tissue regeneration and repair. 

Who benefits from hyperbaric oxygen treatment?

What can I expect during hyperbaric oxygen treatment?

Your hyperbaric oxygen treatment is an in-office therapy.  Treatment is noninvasive, painless, and safe. The practice charges $50 per one-hour session. 

During your therapy, your provider has you lie in the hyperbaric oxygen chamber. At the start of your treatment, you may feel an increase in pressure in your ears, similar to what you experience on an airplane. 

Yawning and swallowing can relieve the pressure. The team encourages you to relax and breathe during your therapy. 

After your treatment, your provider checks your blood oxygen levels and sends you home. There’s no downtime following hyperbaric oxygen treatment, but you may feel hungrier than usual. 

How many hyperbaric oxygen treatments do I need?

Your provider at Arkansas Progressive Medicine determines how many hyperbaric oxygen treatments you need during your initial consultation. The number may depend on your diagnosis and the need for therapy.

Some conditions only need a few treatments, while others may need as many as 40 sessions. 

To help you reach your health and wellness goals, the team at Arkansas Progressive Medicine may also include other therapies with your hyperbaric oxygen treatment, such as disease-specific medication, vitamin B12 injections, or an exercise program.
