EQUINE HYPERBARIC OXYGEN THERAPY
Reduce Healing Time with your Equine Athlete
What was once created just for human use, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is now a commonly used therapy for equine athletes. Our treatment facility in Redmond, Washington utilizes this therapy often.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is produced by allowing a patient to breathe very high concentrations of oxygen (up to 100%) while placing them in a chamber and increasing the pressure around them. By increasing the pressure around the patient while they breathe high levels of oxygen, we can increase the amount of oxygen in the blood by as much as 15 times normal levels. The goal is to deliver the oxygen to the diseased tissue to help it to heal. The increased pressure condenses the oxygen molecules making more molecules available for the blood to pick up in the lungs and pass to the plasma.
Oxygen is a great healer and reduces healing time by half. It does this by opening all arteries, veins and lymphatic channels reducing inflammation, swelling and bruising. This makes antibiotics work better and doubles the stem cells available for healing.
