Can hyperbaric oxygen decrease side effects immediately after radiation?
Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO2) is a commonly used treatment for patients who have suffered the late effects of radiation therapy, also known as Chronic Radiation Tissue Injury (CRTI) or Soft Tissue Radionecrosis (STRN). While we utilize radiation to kill cancer cells, it also damages healthy tissue that is next to the cancer. Radiation results in tissue…Read More →
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy for inflammatory bowel disease
Hyperbaric Oxygen (HBO2) HBO2 has been used to treat a variety of different diseases that all have hypoxia – a lack of oxygen – as a common denominator. HBO2 has been shown to stimulate new blood growth and enhance the body’s ability to kill bacteria by increasing the amount of oxygen in the body ten-fold…Read More →
