Benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)

I’m excited to announce that we now have a hyperbaric oxygen chamber at Apollo Health Clinic in the Whitefish, Montana clinic location as of April 2021!

It is imperative that this therapy is done in a manner that is backed by the latest research for treatment efficacy. Many clinics are not having consistent results that allow patients to get the most benefit due to shortened session times and inconsistent treatment frequency. Successful results typically require 2-4 treatments per week with each treatment 60 minutes in duration for the first 20 treatments which are followed by a mid-way evaluation.The remaining 20 treatments for the 40 total treatments is completed with a comprehensive re-evaluation of treatment progress.

At Apollo Health Clinic, we follow the latest research for your complete therapeutic success!

Please call us today to inquire about seeing if you qualify for this amazing therapy!

Conventional uses of HBOT from the Mayo Clinic:

“Your body’s tissues need an adequate supply of oxygen to function. When tissue is injured, it requires even more oxygen to survive. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy increases the amount of oxygen your blood can carry. With repeated scheduled treatments, the temporary extra high oxygen levels encourage normal tissue oxygen levels, even after the therapy is completed.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is used to treat several medical conditions. And medical institutions use it in different ways. Your doctor may suggest hyperbaric oxygen therapy if you have one of the following conditions”: 

  • Severe anemia
  • Brain abscess
  • Bubbles of air in your blood vessels (arterial gas embolism)
  • Burns
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Crushing injury
  • Deafness, sudden
  • Decompression sickness
  • Gangrene
  • Infection of skin or bone that causes tissue death
  • Non-healing wounds, such as a diabetic foot ulcer
  • Radiation injury
  • Skin graft or skin flap at risk of tissue death
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Vision loss, sudden and painless

The 13 FDA Approved Uses typically performed in a hard shell Hyperbaric chamber in a Hospital:

  • Air or Gas Embolism
  • Carbon Monoxide Poisoning 
  • Gas Gangrene 
  • Crush Injury 
  • Decompression Sickness
  • Arterial Insufficiencies
  • Intracranial Abscess
  • Necrotizing Soft Tissue Infections 
  • Delayed Radiation Injury 
  • Osteomyelitis 
  • Compromised Skin Grafts and Flaps 
  • Severe Anemia 
  • Thermal Burn Injury
