Hyberbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is the medical use of oxygen in a pressurized environment, at a level higher than 1 atmosphere absolute (ATA). Increased pressure allows for oxygen to dissolve and saturate the blood plasma (independent of hemoglobin/red blood cells), which yields a broad variety of positive physiological, biochemical and cellular effects. This noninvasive therapy is the most trusted way to increase oxygen levels to all organs of the body. The typical treatment lasts for 60-90 minutes, during which the patient lies down and breathes normally.
HBOT has been demonstrated in several clinical studies to enhance the body’s innate ability to repair and regenerate. It is used as an adjunct therapy to complement and enhance the healing process in both chronic and acute conditions. Please consult your Shine Pediatrics Provider if you’re interested in HBOT.
Our HBOT chamber is housed at the Center for Holistic Healing. A Shine Pediatrics Medical Assistant will meet you in the lobby at the time of your appointment. They are located at 12800 Hillcrest Rd Ste A207, Dallas, TX 75230.
