Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
HBOT is the delivery of oxygen at a pressure greater than normal (greater than 100kPa) so that a higher level of oxygen can be dissolved in the patient's blood plasma. This takes place within a treatment chamber.
It is the only treatment available for decompression illness, a condition that can develop while scuba diving. Divers with suspected decompression illness need urgent access to HBOT.
It also has some other applications in treating a range of injuries.
