Medical Conditions Treated by Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment
Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment (HBOT) can help stroke patients. When a stroke occurs the brain is cutoff of blood flow leaving the neurons in the brain oxygen starved. Although the brain only accounts for a small portion of the body, it uses over 20% of the bodies oxygen. HBOT can be helpful for stroke victims because it supplies additional oxygen to keep the neurons healthy and in proper order. HBOT can also be helpful for those who have suffered from a stroke because it can significantly increase the stem cells available from the bone marrow, which aid in the development of new neurons that are necessary to recover from a stroke.
HBOT can be help stroke victims in several ways:
- Relief from excess build up of fluid in and around the brain
- Diffusion of oxygen outside the blood vessels
- Providing the oxygen necessary for brain proper functioning
- Improve circulation in the brain
If you, or someone you love, has suffered a stroke then you should consider the possibility of Hyperbaric Oxygen as a treatment to help restore their quality of life.
