The treatment is very comfortable, painless and non-invasive. During the first and the last 8 to 10 minutes of the treatment (pressurization and depressurization), you may feel your ears pressurize similar to what you might experience in an airplane during take-off or landing.
Hyperoxygenation: Increasing the pressure in the chamber while breathing increase alveolar po2. Thus increased blood oxygen transport via plasma increases tissue po2 and helps in healing.
Neovascularization: Increased po2 is important for the release of growth hormone which is needed for capillary growth.
Vasoconstriction: Thus cerebral edema reduces and oxygen supply to brain increases.
Microorganism effect: Increased phagocytosis has antibacterial effects.
Effect on stem cells: It stimulates the vasculogenic stem cell mobilization from bone marrow.
