  • BRIEF HISTORY OF HBOT 1662 - British physician to treat pulmonary disease and help with digestion. 1891 - Doctors in U.S. began using hyperbaric oxygen therapy to treat nervous disorders 1895 - Was found to be effective in treating carbon monoxide poisoning. 1928 - The largest hyperbaric chamber for $1 million in Ohio by Dr. Cunningham. It was a 5 story high steel ball that contained 60 rooms 1934 - A U.S. Naval officer found hyperbaric oxygen therapy to be effective in treating decompression sickness. 1961 - Hyperbaric oxygen therapy was found to be effective in treating gas gangrene. 1963 - The first International Congress on Hyperbaric Medicine convened in USA 1966 - Hyperbaric oxygen therapy was found to be effective in treating stroke patients. 1970 - Hyperbaric oxygen therapy was found to be effective in treating multiple sclerosis. 1988 - The International Society of Hyperbaric Medicine was founded. 2000 - Hyperbaric medicine was approved by the American Board of Medical Specialties as a sub-speciality of emergency and preventative medicine.

  • Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Humour First tried on Human Now being successfully used on animals
  • Slide 5
  • HYPERBARIC Hyper = More or increased Baric = Related to Pressure More Pressure Word Hyperbaric derived from Hebrew word for More Pressure
  • Slide 6
  • Hyperbaric is More Pressure More Pressure yes. Than what pressure ? Related to which pressure?
  • Slide 7
  • More Pressure Related to Atmospheric Pressure Atmospheric pressure is the (amount of normal ) pressure exerted at sea level. This pressure is referred to as One Atmospheric Pressure : 1 ATA ATA ( Atmospheric Absolute )
  • Slide 8
  • Henrys Law (An increase in atmospheric pressure allows for more gas to be dissolved into any given liquid at constant temperature) (Henrys law states that the amount of gas dissolved in a liquid is equal to the partial pressure of the gas exerted on the surface of the liquid. By increasing the atmospheric pressure in the chamber, more oxygen can be dissolved into the plasma than would be seen at surface pressure.) The human body is composed almost completely of water. Gas... under pressure... dissolves in water.
  • Slide 9
  • Hyperbaric Medicine Use of Oxygen at a higher pressure than the atmospheric pressure
  • Slide 10
  • Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy HBOT Intermittent treatment with 100 % oxygen at a greater pressure than the normal atmospheric pressure
  • Slide 11
  • HBOT & Dissolving Oxygen During Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT ) 100% oxygen dissolves in blood plasma, body cells, tissues and fluids. This is 5 times more than normal !!!!

  • Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy How Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is Administered ? How Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is Administered ?
  • Slide 13
  • Types of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Chambers 1) Portable 2) Monoplace 3) Multiplace
  • Slide 14
  • Portable Hyperbaric Chamber Referred to as MILD HBOT as pressure used in less than 1.5 ATA Child receiving treatment Attributes: Made of inflatable Bags with zippers. Maximum pressure upto 1.3 /1.5 ATA For 2 Adults or 1 Adult & 1 Child. Allows O2 concentrator connections. Self and home treatment possible. Portable, can be carried if needed. Referred to as Mild HBOT chambers. Low cost and limited application
  • Slide 15
  • Monoplace HBOT Chamber Called MONOPLACE CHAMBER as One (Mono) patient can be treated at a time Patient receiving treatment Attributes Accommodates only a single person Pressurized to upto 2-3 ATA with 100% oxygen Access to patient through intercom communication. Patient entertainment systems -TV / Video is mounted on top Patient monitoring systems can be hooked Referred to as Hard Shell Chambers Lower cost Mobile
  • Slide 16
  • Monoplace Hyperbaric Chamber Patient Handling Method Monoplace Chamber & StretcherPatient slid only with top of Stretcher
  • Slide 17
  • Monoplace Hyperbaric Chamber Patient communicating with the attendant while receiving treatment
  • Slide 18
  • Multiplace HBOT Chamber Accommodates patients / healthcare personnel from 4 20 in numbers. Pressurised with medical breathing air from 2 - 6 ATA Breath 100% oxygen through head tent or face mask Patient monitors and ventilators can be interfaced for the Critically ill Medicines can be passed through special openings during treatment Intercom communication. Internal Entertainment system like TV / video Needs larger space & fixed systems High cost
