Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Description

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) involves the breathing of pure oxygen while in a sealed chamber that has been pressurized at 1-1/2 to 3 times normal atmospheric pressure.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) melibatkan pernafasan oxygen murni ketika didalam chamber tertutup dengan tekanan almosfir 1 s/d 3x dari tekanan atmosfir normal.

 

Overview

Research has shown HBOT can help when used as a mainstream treatment for the prevention and treatment of osteoradionecrosis, a term for delayed bone damage caused by radiation therapy. There is also some evidence suggesting HBOT may be helpful as an extra treatment for soft tissue injury caused by radiation. There is no evidence that HBOT cures cancer. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved HBOT to treat more than a dozen health problems such as decompression sickness, carbon monoxide poisoning, gangrene, brain abscess, and injuries in which tissues are not getting enough oxygen.

Claims about alternative uses of HBOT include that it destroys disease-causing microorganisms, cures cancer, relieves chronic fatigue syndrome, and decreases allergy symptoms. A few supporters also claim that HBOT helps patients with AIDS, arthritis, sports injuries, multiple sclerosis, autism, stroke, cerebral palsy, senility, cirrhosis, Lyme disease, and gastrointestinal ulcers. Available scientific evidence does not support these claims. Because of that, the FDA has sent a warning letter to at least one manufacturer about promoting HBOT for unproven uses. The

Penelitian telah membuktikan bahwa HBOT dapat membantu sebagai treatment yang baik untuk pencegahan dan pengobatan dari “asteoradionecrosis” istilah untuk pelambatan kerusakan pada tulang yang disebabkan oleh therapy radiasi.

Juga ditemukan beberapa buktii bahwa HBOT dapat sebagai extra treatment untuk cidera pada jaringan lunak yang disebabkan oleh radiasi.

FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) telah menyetujui bahwa HBOT dapat membantu pengobatan beberapa macam masalah kesehatan, seperti keracunan CO2, dekompresi akibat perubahan tekanan udara, infeksi/bakteri pada otak, dan cireda akibat jaringan tidak mendapatkan cukup oxygen.

 

HBOT juga di klaim dapat membantu dalam penghancuran penyakit yang di sebabkan oleh micro organic, menyembukan kanker, mengurangi penyakit alergi, membantu penderita AIDS, autis, stroke, chronic fatigue syndrom, dll.

 

What is the history behind it?

In the early 1900s, Orville Cunningham noticed that people with some heart diseases did better if they lived closer to sea level than at high altitudes. He successfully treated a colleague with influenza who was near death due to lung restriction, and later developed a hyperbaric chamber.

HBOT chambers were developed by the military in the 1940s to treat deep-sea divers who suffered from decompression sickness. In the 1950s, HBOT was first used during heart and lung surgery. In the 1960s, HBOT was used for carbon monoxide poisoning, and it has since been studied and used for a number of health-related applications.

Di awal tahun 1900, Orville Cunningham mengamati bahwa orang-orang dengan penyakit jantung dapat bertahan lebih baik jika hidup lebih dekat atau sejajar dengan pantai daripada yang tinggal di daerah yang lebih tinggi. Dia berhasil menyembuhkan teman kerjanya dari flu yang kritis dimana hampir meninggal karena paru-paru yang menyempit, dimana lalu dia mengembangkan metode nya dengan membuat hyperbaric chamber.

Tahun 1940-an chamber ini gunakan militer untuk para penyelam yang mengalami dekompresi.

Tahun 1950-an HBOT pertama kali digunakan pada waktu pelaksanaan operasi jantung dan paru-paru.

Tahun 1960-an HBOT di gunakan untuk pemulihan dikarenakan keracunan CO2, dan selanjutnya dikembangkan untuk membantu pengobatan-pengobatan yang lain.

 

What is the evidence?

There is scientific evidence showing HBOT works to treat a number of conditions. The Committee on Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy of the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medicine recommends it for treatment of:

  • Decompression sickness
  • Arterial gas embolism (bubbles of air in the blood vessels)
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning (with or without cyanide poisoning)
  • Delayed radiation injury of the soft tissue or bones, including osteoradionecrosis
  • Gas gangrene (a serious infection)
  • Skin grafts and flaps that are not healing well with standard treatment
  • Soft tissue infections in which tissues are dying (necrotic)
  • Anemia due to severe blood loss (when transfusions are not an option)
  • Crushing injuries in which there is not enough oxygen to the tissues
  • Certain wounds that are not healing with standard treatment

 

Chamber dapat dibuat sesuai dengan kebutuhan dan budget dari pengguna, sehingga dapat di custom menjadi single lock atau twin lock, dengan kapasitas 4 seats, 6 seats, 8 seats, 12 seats, 16 seats.  Tinggi chamber juga bisa 180cm ataupun 220cm.
