Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy is an intermittent treatment of 100 percent oxygen at increased atmospheric pressure. In a hyperbaric oxygen therapy room, air pressure is as much as three times higher than normal. These conditions allow your lungs to collect three-times as much oxygen as they would under normal circumstances. This oxygen is carried throughout the body in the blood and stimulates the release of growth factors and stem cells that promote healing.
