HBOT is an effective treatment for patients who have suffered from a stroke. One point to keep in mind is that this treatment cannot begin until the patient is in stable condition, including having a normal blood pressure level. Once you have been cleared for HBOT we can work with you to create the most effective course of treatment for your unique situation. This treatment modality has been effective in the treatment of patients who have brain damage due to a stroke, and can potentially help to improve your quality of life too.
The use of HBOT in stroke victims can increase the amount and concentration of oxygen that reaches the brain. The treatment consists of breathing concentrated 97% oxygen in a pressurized chamber. This increase in oxygen can help to reduce the amount of swelling on the brain which in turn can lead to better outcomes and fewer instances of irreversible brain damage. Time is of the essence, and getting you the most effective treatment as soon as possible is our goal.
