Normal Blood Flow

Normal Blood Flow: There is 21% oxygen in the air that we breathe at normal air pressure. Our lungs transfer this oxygen to our red blood cells (via hemoglobin). These oxygen-filled red blood cells are carried around the body by the plasma (fluid), which travels through the blood vessels. Under normal air pressure the plasma is unable to absorb oxygen. The oxygen diffuses into the surrounding tissue ensuring that it is delivered to where it is needed most.

Restricted Blood Flow

Restricted Blood Flow: Restricted Blood Flow: When blood flow is restricted or interrupted due to illness injury or inflammation the red blood cells block the blood vessel and are unable to transfer oxygen to the cells on the other side of the restriction. This swelling starves the area of oxygen, causing hypoxia (a lack of oxygen); when this occurs, the tissue begins to break down.

Hyperbaric Oxygenation

Hyperbaric Oxygenation: concentrated oxygen under increased atmospheric pressure provides the body with at least 10-15 times its normal supply of oxygen and diffuses greater amounts of oxygen into the blood and blood plasma. This oxygen-rich plasma is able to diffuse up to 3 times deeper into the tissues and helps to reduce inflammation and repair damaged tissues. The saturative effects of tissue oxygenation slows and reverses hypoxic induced apoptosis – restoring blood supply to the compromised region by the development of new capillary networks (angiogenesis) enabling the body to alter the course and impact of the disease process.
