A hyperbaric oxygen machine can help people who have recently had surgery recover from their wounds much faster. Acute surgical wounds often heal slowly due to various factors, such as:
- • Low Blood Supply
- • Infection
- • Blood Vessel Damage
New research has found that hyperbaric oxygen therapy can help people heal from their wounds much quicker.
How It Works
When someone undergoes hyperbaric oxygen therapy, they lie down in an airtight chamber that fills with pure oxygen. This causes the person’s blood oxygen to increase, which then leads to more tissues, cells, and organs receiving more high-quality oxygen. This boosts the body’s ability to heal.
Users should only use the chamber for about an hour with two hours being the most, as too much oxygen can damage the brain and lungs.
Researchers have studied the effects of the hyperbaric chamber. Findings were published in a recent Cochrane review showing the chamber can be effective in many ways to help people recover from wounds as well as heal from various illnesses.
