Underutilized Medicine? What you Need to Know

Hyperbaric Oxygen » High Pressure Oxygen is a simple and highly efficient in delivering one of the most crucial elements to the human body, Oxygen. The difference between Hyperbaric Oxygen from the normal air we breathe everyday is that in Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, patients are immersed in 100% pure oxygen, which, contains approximately 79% more oxygen than the air we breathe on a daily basis. Administration of 100% oxygen under slight pressure causes increased oxygen to be dissolved into all of the bodily fluids and tissue spaces; areas it cannot normally reach. This allows oxygen to infuse and saturate every cell of the brain and body.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) 

Therapies are very efficient in the delivery of oxygen to wounds, swollen or damaged tissues, and areas of the body that are lacking sufficient blood. With increased oxygen to the cells, the body is able to speed up the healing process at many sites of injury, including bone, soft tissue, the brain, spinal cord, heart, liver, etc. Its amazing healing benefits are well recognized for non-healing wounds and infections, carbon monoxide poisoning and the bends. However, as doctors and researchers have learned about the mechanisms of action of HBOT, this list has rapidly expanded and is addressing conditions from multiple sclerosis to autism, stroke, cerebral palsy, Lyme disease, vascular dementia, bone loss, macular degeneration and many other conditions in which tissues have been damaged by varying degrees of oxygen deprivation. HBOT is also a powerful anti-inflammatory agent and it is now well recognized that most degenerative and long standing illness is a result of chronic inflammation. But how does it work?

Administered under pressure, oxygen has medicine-like effects on the DNA, and other components of each cell, signaling the DNA to promote new tissue growth and regeneration. It stimulates angiogenesis, which is the development of tiny new capillary growth in injured areas to reestablish blood supply. It enhances immune function and is a powerful combatant of infection. In 2007 it was demonstrated that HBOT can cause stem cell release from the body’s own bone marrow into circulation to reach points of injury. These and other factors are what make it such a versatile non-invasive therapy which is virtually side-effect free.

 One of the great pioneers and proponents of the field, Dr. Richard A. Neubauer, did his amazing work and research right here in South Florida. He began his practice in 1972 and within a decade was beginning to become recognized as an international expert and innovator in the field. He authored hundreds of articles and was published in such prestigious journals as the Lancet, the British Medical Journal and the Journal of the American Medical Association. His research, expertise and technique in the treatment of brain injury with hyperbaric oxygen is now being utilized worldwide.
