Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
HBOT: What is it? Should I try it?
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is an innovative treatment that enhances the body’s natural healing process through oxygen inhalation in a soft or hard hyperbaric chamber where atmospheric pressure is controlled. The concept of hyperbaric oxygen is pretty simple: the gases in the air get thinner as you go higher in the air, and they become denser as you go deeper in the earth. Thus, simulating going underwater in a medical device means you breathe in more oxygen per breath—up to three times as much! This means three times as much oxygen can be dissolved into the bloodstream and help with anything that oxygen improves in the body, which is almost every single system!
HBOT delivers much-needed oxygen to all tissues of the body and supports healing and repair. In the chamber, the air pressure increases to allow your lungs to have as much oxygen as possible, improving your body’s overall breathing pattern and healing process.

HBOT At The James Clinic
At The James Clinic, our notoriety and success with HBOT come from COVID patients who were clinically crashing or who developed full-blown cytokine storm. We were able to use the chamber, stabilize their oxygen levels, and treat them at home—even when their presenting oxygen saturation was as low as 60%.
