What to expect in your sessions
1. I'm claustrophobic. Am I going to feel stuck in a tube?
-Firstly we have a vertical hyperbaric chamber, not a horizontal / lying chamber. This means you'll feel more like sitting in a tall tent than being stuck in a tube. Our Chamber is also able to be opened from the inside should you need to get out quickly, It also contains windows so that you'll be able to see outside the entire time, as well as our technician will be able to monitor you. We also have an alarm button you can press if you'd like us to end the session early.
2. I have limited mobility, will I be able to get in and out easily?
-Again with our vertical chamber, it is easy to step in and out of without much bending over. We have a normal height seat in the chamber that you can sit in comfortably once inside.
3. What do I do when inside?
-What ever you would like! We have an ipad if you want to watch Netflix / browse the internet. Some patients bring books to read, listen to music, talk on their cell phones, play videogames, work on their laptop, or meditate.
4. How long are sessions (referred to as a "dive" )?
-Each dive will start and end with about a 5-10 minute inflate and deflate period. Our providers will then recommend how long they want you to dive / stay under pressure for your exact condition, but 30 minutes at full pressure is an average time.
5. Are there any side effects during the session?
-Mild HBOT therapy is incredibly safe, but some patients experience pressure in their ears similar to flying on an airplane that lasts a few minutes while inflating. This can be mitigated / avoided by yawning or chewing asthe pressure changes are occuring.
6. Is there a concern of overoxygenation or oxygen toxicity?
-This is a phenomenon of tingling fingers and toes that happens in divers who spend many hours in very high pressure hyperbaic systems for days at a time. These are not conditions that we re-create in our protocols and thus never occur in our setting.
7. How many sessions will I need and how much does it cost?
-This will vary widely based on your condition and health status. Some patients complete one dive at a time as needed for things like migraines. Some of our cancer patients come twice per week throughout their chemo and radiation sessions. Patients with chronic conditions may come once a week for many months. If it is looking like you would benefit from an extended number of sessions, we do offer packages to make care more obtainable if needed.
