How Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Works

In each session, the patient enters an oxygen chamber, where the air pressure increases slowly. Patients can often listen to music or watch TV and feel no differently than if they were in a normal pressure environment. The idea is to increase the amount of oxygen in the body’s tissues and red blood cells. The process can change the way the body heals.
