What Will I Experience in the Hyperbaric Chamber
Who Will Be Operating the Hyperbaric Chamber
Our Hyperbaric chambers are operated by certified Hyperbaric Technicians. They will be monitoring you at all times.
How will I feel breathing in 100% oxygen at pressure
Breathing oxygen at pressure should make you feel more alert and aware. It is normal to sometimes feel a bit light headed in the beginning stages as your body adjusts to absorbing that much oxygen.
Is it Safe?
Yes it is very safe as our chambers do not go to a pressure above 2.0ATA - Oxygen can become toxic but only if breathed at a pressure far greater than this. 2.0 ATA is the equivalent of being 10 metres under water and oxygen toxicity only occurs at 56 + metres.
What should I wear?
- For the Hyox Chamber you need to be wearing all cotton items. So please wear cotton underwear. Cotton t-shirt and pyjama trousers. These can be aquired from Optimum Wellbeing if you do not have any.
Please remove all jewellery and your bra.
Bring cotton socks.
Remove any make up including lipstick, eyeliner, nail polish or perfume.
Do not have any Lotion, oils, hairspray, hair mousse or gel.
Do not wear any nylon.
How Many Treatments Should I have?
The amount of treatments varies from patient to patient as everybody responds differently and it also depends on what you are using Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for. During the initial session either our GP or osteopath will prescribe how many treatments would be most beneficial to supporting your condition and working with any other therapies and protocols you are following.
Will I feel any discomfort or pain during the sessions?
Compression Phase :
Will it affect my eyes or eyesight?
Patients experiencing daily HBOT sessions have reported that changes have temporarily occured with their eyesight. These are usually minor and make close up reading appear clearer.
Smoking is prohibitted for the duration of your Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Sessions.
If you have cold or flu then you may have blocked eustacian tubes which will prevent your ears from being able to equalise or the pressure in your sinuses may bring on an intense sinus headache. Please tell us if you are feeling this way as it may better to reschedule your appointments to a time when you are feeling better.
BRINGING PEOPLE WITH YOU
Our HYOX Hyperbaric Chamber is for one person only so if you are wanting to bring a carer with you they would have to remain in the waiting room for safety reasons. If there is an issue with this please call and tell us what it may be so that we can assist in any way we can.
