KHAMH, A'Ali is equipped to offer Hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized environment. It is a well-established treatment for decompression sickness, a potential risk of scuba diving. It also helps in wound healing.
In a hyperbaric oxygen therapy chamber, the air pressure is increased 2 to 3 times higher than normal air pressure. Under these conditions, your lungs can gather much more oxygen than would be possible breathing pure oxygen at normal air pressure.
This extra oxygen helps fight bacteria. It also triggers the release of substances called growth factors and stem cells, which promote wound healing.
Hyperbaric oxygen enhances wound healing by fibroblast and capillary proliferation, suppress infection, reduce edema, reverse CNS damage from carbon monoxide and cyanide poisoning, and reduce clostridial alpha toxins.
