Lying Type Hyperbaric Chamber For Sports
How Does HBOT help Athletes and Gym Body Builder?Hyperbaric Oxygen (HBO) in sports has become more prevalent in today’s collegiate and professional realm. Mild HBO therapy provides a highly effective way to increase the volume of oxygen in the blood and thus increase the many beneficial effects that oxygen has on the body. It allows the body to get the oxygen it needs to create ATP for energy and flush out the lactic acid that causes muscle fatigue. The elevated oxygen levels help athletes increase performance and recover more quickly after a workout. Increased oxygen delivery to the brain facilitates brain function, and enhances an athlete’s ability to make split-second decisions that could be a difference in the outcome of a game.A sports injury can be especially devastating for an athlete. Often, athletes re-injure themselves or make their conditions worse by attempting to return to full activity before their bodies have healed completely. Athletes sidelined because of injury can lose their standing in national rankings, or their place on a team. Because elite athletes have so much at stake, many have turned to mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy to speed recovery.The pressurized chamber in which athletes breathe pure oxygen, allows up to a tenfold increase in the oxygen level of the blood plasma and hemoglobin. The red blood cells become more malleable, increasing their ability to penetrate restricted blood vessels so that cells and tissues receive the oxygen they need to regenerate and heal. With hyperbaric treatment, a sprained ankle might recover in four days instead of eight; a bruised thigh could mend in one week, not three. Recovery time is reduced significantly, and athletes at all skill levels get back into play faster.1.What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy is the breathing of pure oxygen while inside a treatment chamber. The purpose of the therapy is to provide increased amounts of oxygen to the body.2.How does it work?The air we breathe is 21% oxygen, 78% nitrogen and minor amounts of other gases. Our bodies are usually able to heal themselves with a normal oxygen level, but in certain conditions extra oxygen is required. During HBO therapy, the pressure is increased with more than 90% purity oxygen. The breathing of pure oxygen under pressure causes a much larger than normal amount of oxygen to be dissolved in the blood and subsequently, the rest of the body. The extra oxygen is used by the body in many ways. Depending on the underlying problem, the oxygen can improve wound healing by reducing swelling, keeping infection under control and stimulating new blood vessel growth.3.How long is the treatment?Usually 60-90 minutes for each time, 5-7 Times per week. Doctors recommend using it continuously every day, but one time per day is enough. 4.Are there any side effects?Usually, there are no side effects to hyperbaric treatment. Some people may feel tired after a treatment. Other people may feel a popping in their ears. Sometimes, a patient may have small changes in vision. The changes are temporary. Let your Hyperbaric Unit technician or doctor know if this continues.5.How will it feel?You will feel the change in pressure in your ears when chamber inflating, similar to that when descending in an airplane. Once the chamber has had a chance to equalize you will not have any discomfort. During treatment, you will be able to watch videos and enjoy listening to by your phone and pad. You can also choose to just close your eyes and relax. At the end of the treatment, the chamber pressure is reduced.You will feel your ears "popping" during this phase. You can clear your ears by chewing (gum or food), swallowing, yawning. Once the chamber is fully pressurized, this feeling will return to normal.
