What is hyperbaric oxygenation based on and what are its disadvantages?

  • by

In order for the cells in the human body to fulfill their biological functions at maximum intensity, it will need oxygen. If oxygen is not properly transported to cells, either by vasoconstriction or by oxygen deficiency in our blood, they suffer from oxidative stress.

Probably everyone is aware that stress is the cause of free radicals. Free radicals are very bad for the human body because they affect the biological function of cells.

With the help of hyperbaric exigency, you will realize that your body will get oxygen to all corners of the body, even to cells that are poorly irrigated by capillaries. Due to the hyperoxygenation to which the body is subjected with this therapy, the growth of new capillaries increases and existing ones regenerate.

Capillaries are responsible for absorbing oxygen from the lungs to introduce it into the bloodstream so that it reaches all areas of the body. This additional supply of oxygen is very beneficial in the processes of healing and repairing tissues.

Complications in this procedure are very rare, but, like any medical procedure, it is not without risks.

These are:

• Oxygen poisoning. This procedure can cause seizures due to excess oxygen in the central nervous system.

• Barotrauma. Due to changes in air pressure, certain organs may be damaged.

• Temporary myopia. This problem can be caused by an increase in the level of oxygen in the blood.

• Ear damage: in both the middle and inner ear, including fluid loss and broken eardrum due to high pressure.
