Your Southern Colorado Spot for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Ask NOT what you can do for HBOT but what HBOT can do for you!
How Does HBOT Work? 
It's all about the pressure.  Oxygen under pressure dissolves into a liquid (your plasma) instead of being reliant on being carried by red blood cells.  Greater levels of oxygen are able to reach deeper into your tissues.  Because of injury, inflammation, infection, and trauma, the tiny blood vessels that carry red blood cells are often damaged, creating a broken highway where red blood cells cannot deliver oxygen.  In the same manner, some of your red blood cells themselves may have also sustained damage and may no longer be able to carry oxygen effectively.  You may have a great oxygen concentration level with a pulse oximeter but that doesn't mean you have sufficient levels or amounts of red blood cells to saturate your tissues. 

An increase of 0.5 to a 1.5 atmosphere increase will raise the oxygen levels in plasma 7 × -12× normal (700 % to 1200 %).  Under this increased pressure oxygen acts like a DNA signaling agent. This treatment’s mechanisms of action simply follow the general gas laws for saturating liquids with a gas, similar to the way Coca-Cola® makes their product.
What Conditions Does HBOT Treat?
The only insurance reimbursable conditions approved by the FDA are the following: decompression sickness, gas embolism, CO and cyanide poisoning, gas gangrene, selected aerobic and anaerobic soft tissue infections, osteomyelitis, intracranial abscess, management of fungal disease, radiation injury to tissue, exceptional blood loss/anemia, crush injury/compartment syndrome, ischemia reperfusion injuries, skin grafts and flaps, healing in selected problem wounds, and treatment of thermal burns.

Keep in mind, these conditions above are candidates for the high pressure, 100% pressurized oxygen chambers seen in hospitals. The chamber we possess is considered a mild, pressurized air chamber (m-HBOT).

But just because it's mild, does not mean it is weak. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy DOES NOT work specifically because of the amount of oxygen, it works because of pressure.
What About m-HBOT?
The only treatable condition approved by the FDA is Altitude Sickness (or Acute Mountain Sickness). We are familiar with this in Colorado Springs living at roughly 6500 feet of elevation. All other uses are categorized as off-label conditions. 

With that said, many use mild HBOT in support of: 

Performance Enhancement 
Cerebral Palsy 
Neurological Conditions 
AutoImmune (like Multiple Sclerosis)
Bacterial Overgrowth
Altitude Adaptation

Don't confuse mild with weak. Mild HBOT provides the body with significant additional oxygen. More importantly, the extra oxygen is traveling in the body’s plasma (the liquid portion of our blood) and can get into areas that most other oxygen molecules cannot.  In saying that, there are certain times that higher doses are required (i.e., a life-threatening condition) and in this case, m-HBOT would not be appropriate. This does not mean that it does not work. It just means in certain cases mild is more appropriate and in other cases high pressure 100% oxygen is more appropriate. 
Does Insurance Cover Treatments? 
Not for the uses that m-HBOT would cover.  You can use your HSA or FSA. Care credit is also available for those who qualify.  
So, Then What Does it Cost and How Many Sessions Would I Need?
Below is a general guide regarding the number of sessions recommended for the type of outcomes you desire.  

Under 20 hours of exposure is geared at supporting the following: increased superoxide dismutase – major antioxidant; increased oxidative phosphorylation – How ATP is formed (universal energy currency); increased oxygen perfusion – oxygen exchange with tissues; increased energy production – ATP again; and decreased inflammation. 

Over 20 hours of exposure is geared at supporting the following: immune system regulation, neurotransmitter regulation, hormonal regulation, increased stem cell release, increased mitochondrial size and density, increased wound healing, increased angiogenesis – new blood vessel formation; and fighting anaerobic infection (SIBO, Lyme, etc).

You Mean I Can Rent a Chamber Instead of Having to Come to the Office?
Absolutely.  This will actually be your most cost effective solution for those needing more frequent sessions.  We set up a chamber in your own home for 30 days. We install it, teach you how to operate it, are available for support, and then come pick it up when the rental is finished. For this option the rental is $2,190. We require a $3,000 security deposit that is returned at the end of the your rental if there are no damages. 

Please call so we can coordinate available chambers and dates and times to set up in your home.  719-602-4545.
Want More Oxygen? 
For home rentals, add an oxygen concentrator to your set up for an additional $350.  
What's An Oxygen Concentrator? 
The air we breath contains approximately 21% oxygen, 78% nitrogen, and 1% other gases.  With the oxygen concentrator, room air is drawn into the machine through an air intake port. It then passes through an absorbent material called a molecular sieve.  This material separates the oxygen from the nitrogen and allows only the oxygen to pass through.  The result is a flow of 90-92% oxygen delivered via mask while you are in the chamber.  
How Long Before I Will Experience Benefits? 
Everyone is different. Some see immediate benefits and others may not notice anything in particular until after they've completed their series of hyperbaric sessions. In terms of the “40-hour protocol”, it is not uncommon for many benefits to be reported up to four weeks following completion. 
Can I Use HBOT For General Health And Wellness? 
Yes, and that is why we like to focus on physiological benefits as opposed to medical conditions. In saying that, it is highly recommended that you speak with us about having a general screening for being inside of a hyperbaric chamber (i.e., being “fit for hyperbarics”). As low as the risks are, this will help to minimize any potential problems you may experience. Feel free to book a discovery call to discuss any concerns.  719-602-4545.
Can I Use a Hyperbaric Chamber if I’m Pregnant? 
It is not generally advised to undergo hyperbaric therapy if you are pregnant. Some people feel that there is benefit, quoting research done in Russia. However, until further safety studies are performed, it is not advisable to be inside a hyperbaric chamber during pregnancy. 
Can Children Use HBOT? If So, How Young Can They Be? 
Yes, children can safely undergo hyperbaric therapy. There is no age restriction. The pressure can be altered based on the child's comfort.

Our chambers are also large enough for a parent and child to comfortably be in the chamber together. We encourage the parent to be in the chamber with the child.
