Hyperbaric Medicine is based on significantly increasing the level of Oxygen O2 in the blood generating the strong Hyperoxia adequate for medical therapies. Hyperoxia is created by dissolving the O2 in the blood plasma that is achieved by breathing it under a higher atmospheric pressure inside specially designed chambers. Hyperoxia produces a wide chain of physiological process in the patient organism to treat different diseases.
The undersea and Hyperbaric medical Society (UHMS) defines Hyperbaric Oxygen treatment as treating 100% Oxygen delivered at pressure greater than 1.4 ATA
