Oxygen Therapy Q & A

What is hyperbaric oxygen therapy?

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), often referred to simply as oxygen therapy, is a treatment in which you’re surrounded with pure pressurized oxygen. INDY VITAL often recommends this treatment option for patients suffering from inflammation, pain, or discomfort. 


How does oxygen therapy work?

For oxygen therapy at INDY VITAL, you relax inside an FDA-approved Perry Sigma 34 chamber. INDY VITAL is the only independent hyperbaric oxygen therapy facility in the Indianapolis area, and the equipment on-site is the same type that you’d find at local hospitals. 

The fully pressurized treatment chamber has clear acrylic panels so you can see everything around you. You’re able to interact with the medical team at all times during your treatment. 

The HBOT chamber includes a video entertainment system, so it’s easy to entertain yourself during the painless treatment. 

As you absorb high-concentration oxygen in this pressurized environment, it infuses every part of your body, including your internal organs, with maximum pure oxygen. This has a number of bodywide benefits and helps you heal, rejuvenate, and revitalize quickly. 


What are the advantages of oxygen therapy?

Oxygen therapy has many advantages, including:

  • Speeds up cellular regeneration
  • Encourages recovery in damaged or diseased tissue
  • Encourages new blood vessel growth
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Reduces swelling
  • Promotes toxin release
  • Boosts immune function for better infection resistance
  • Decreases pain

Oxygen therapy is a completely natural treatment that requires zero drugs, but it can often have results just as, if not more, impressive than medication produces. And with oxygen therapy, you’re eliminating toxins instead of potentially ingesting new ones. 


What conditions does oxygen therapy treat?

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy at INDY VITAL can help with a wide range of chronic and acute conditions, including:

  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Vascular dementia
  • Traumatic brain injury, such as concussions
  • Cerebrovascular accident (stroke)
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Regional sympathetic dystrophy
  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Sudden deafness
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Chronic inflammatory arthritis (osteoarthritis)
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Autism
  • Recovery after plastic surgery
  • Headaches, including intractable migraines and cluster headaches

Oxygen therapy is a safe and effective therapy for a wide variety of issues and is typically well-tolerated by adults of all ages. 


How long does oxygen therapy take?

Your treatment lasts 1-3 hours. Most patients get optimal results with 20-40 total HBOT sessions.
