What is a Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber? What is the Benefit?

In the past knowledge, it is generally believed that hyperbaric oxygen chambers are large-scale equipment only available in hospitals to assist in the treatment of some diseases. But with the development of science and technology, there are now civilian versions of hyperbaric oxygen chambers. Compared with the medical oxygen chamber, the volume is smaller, and the materials used are more suitable for home and high-end places to meet people's needs for daily health care and improvement of physical conditions.

What is the function of the hyperbaric oxygen chamber, and why does it make people so fascinated?

1. Knowledge of the hyperbaric oxygen chamber

Hyperbaric oxygen chamber is a special medical equipment for hyperbaric oxygen therapy.  According to different pressurized media, it is divided into air pressurized cabin and pure oxygen pressurized cabin. The scope of application of hyperbaric oxygen chamber is very wide, clinically mainly used for the treatment of anaerobic bacteria infection, CO poisoning, pneumoembolism, decompression sickness, hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy, brain trauma, cerebrovascular disease, etc. The hyperbaric oxygen chamber is usually composed of a cabin, an air supply and exhaust (oxygen) system, an air conditioning system, and a control system. It delivers high-concentration oxygen to the confined space to achieve the effect of enhancing the dissolved oxygen in the body, enhancing the body's oxygen absorption capacity and absorption efficiency, and then improving the hypoxic state of body functions.

2. The benefits of using a hyperbaric oxygen chamber

In hospitals that set up hyperbaric oxygen chamber projects, the main diseases are usually neurological diseases, or sequelae caused by neurological diseases and cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. In addition, the therapeutic effects of hyperbaric oxygen chambers have been improved clinically. With the extensive cooperation between hyperbaric chamber manufacturers and the medical industry, When the hyperbaric oxygen chamber entered the civilian field, for many mental workers and consumers who want cardio-cerebral vascular health care and anti-aging, hyperbaric oxygen chamber has also become a daily health care product. For people who often use hyperbaric oxygen therapy, hyperbaric oxygen chambers have the following advantages:

(1) The use of hyperbaric oxygen chamber can eliminate fatigue, improve brain power and work efficiency, improve the permeability of inner ear hair cell endothelium, reduce exudation, and improve inner ear edema caused by hypoxia. It can reduce blood viscosity and improve blood circulation in the inner ear.

(2) The use of hyperbaric oxygen chamber can improve immunity, help restore damaged cells, and enhance the ability of phagocytes to swallow and kill and digest pathogenic microorganisms and necrotic cells.

(3) The use of hyperbaric oxygen chamber can promote metabolism, improve blood circulation, help weight loss, beauty, anti-aging, and improve sleep quality and reproductive function.

(4) The use of hyperbaric oxygen chambers can relieve hangovers and assist rehabilitation for ischemic cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. Hyperbaric oxygen can expand the vertebral and basilar arteries, and the labyrinth artery is a branch of the basilar artery, so the blood supply to the inner ear is increased during hyperbaric oxygen treatment.
