Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy at Novomed

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy at Novomed

At Novomed Wellness Clinic in Dubai, we strive to provide innovative and effective treatments to enhance your overall health and well-being. One such advanced therapy we offer is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT), a non-invasive medical treatment that involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized room or chamber. This therapy is designed to deliver a range of health benefits by increasing the body’s oxygen levels and promoting healing and recovery.

What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy involves breathing 100% pure oxygen in a pressurized environment, typically within a specially designed chamber. The increased pressure allows your lungs to gather more oxygen than would be possible at normal air pressure. The oxygen-rich air then circulates throughout your body, delivering numerous health benefits.

Uses of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy has been utilized for various medical purposes, including:

  1. Wound Healing: HBOT accelerates the healing of wounds by promoting the growth of new blood vessels and improving tissue regeneration. It is particularly effective for non-healing wounds or those related to diabetes.
  2. Decompression Sickness: HBOT is a crucial treatment for divers experiencing decompression sickness (the bends). It helps in reducing symptoms and aiding recovery.
  3. Radiation Injury: Patients undergoing radiation therapy may experience tissue damage. HBOT can mitigate the adverse effects of radiation by improving blood flow and promoting tissue repair.
  4. Infections: Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is utilized to treat infections, including chronic bone infections and infections that have spread to soft tissues.
  5. Neurological Conditions: Research suggests that HBOT can be beneficial for certain neurological conditions like stroke, traumatic brain injury, and cerebral palsy by improving oxygenation to the brain and promoting neural tissue repair.
  6. Carbon Monoxide Poisoning: In cases of carbon monoxide poisoning, HBOT can help by rapidly eliminating carbon monoxide from the bloodstream and improving oxygen delivery to the tissues.

Benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

The benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy are vast and can positively impact various aspects of health and well-being, including:

  1. Enhanced Healing: By increasing oxygen levels in the body, HBOT stimulates the growth of new blood vessels and aids in tissue repair and regeneration, accelerating the healing process.
  2. Reduced Inflammation: HBOT has anti-inflammatory effects, helping to reduce inflammation and swelling in different parts of the body, which is beneficial for a range of medical conditions.
  3. Improved Immune Function: Oxygen is vital for a healthy immune system. HBOT boosts the immune response, enabling the body to fight infections and illnesses more effectively.
  4. Pain Reduction: HBOT can alleviate chronic pain and discomfort associated with certain medical conditions by promoting healing and reducing inflammation.
  5. Neurological Support: For individuals with neurological conditions, HBOT can aid in improving brain function, cognitive abilities, and overall quality of life.
  6. Enhanced Athletic Performance and Recovery: Athletes and fitness enthusiasts can benefit from HBOT by improving endurance, reducing fatigue, and speeding up recovery after intense workouts or competitions.

How Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Works


Before undergoing Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy at Novomed, you will have an initial consultation with our medical professionals. During this consultation, we will review your medical history, discuss your specific health concerns, and determine if HBOT is a suitable treatment option for you.

During the Session

When you begin a session of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, you will enter a hyperbaric chamber. The chamber will be pressurized to the prescribed level, and you will breathe in 100% pure oxygen through a mask or hood. The increased pressure allows your lungs to absorb a higher amount of oxygen, which is then carried by the blood to all parts of your body.

During the session, you may experience a feeling of fullness in your ears, similar to what you might feel during a flight or deep-sea dive. Our experienced staff will guide you through techniques to equalize the pressure in your ears and make you feel comfortable throughout the session, which typically lasts for about 60 to 90 minutes.

After the Session

After completing a session of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, you may feel rejuvenated and energized. The increased oxygen levels in your body continue to provide healing benefits even after the session. For optimal results, it is recommended to undergo multiple sessions as prescribed by your healthcare professional.

Results of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

The results of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy may vary depending on the individual and the condition being treated. Many individuals experience significant improvements in their condition, such as enhanced wound healing, reduced pain, and improved overall well-being.

At Novomed, we are committed to providing you with a safe and comfortable environment for your Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy sessions. Our experienced medical team will guide you through the process, ensuring that you receive the best care and experience the potential benefits of this innovative therapy.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a medical treatment that involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized room or chamber. The pressure in the chamber is higher than atmospheric pressure, allowing the lungs to absorb more oxygen than they would at normal pressure.

How does Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy work?

HBOT works by increasing the amount of oxygen dissolved in the blood, which then enhances the delivery of oxygen to tissues and organs. The increased pressure helps the body’s natural healing processes and can have anti-inflammatory effects, promoting the repair of damaged tissues.

What conditions can be treated with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

HBOT is primarily used to treat conditions such as non-healing wounds, diabetic foot ulcers, radiation injuries, carbon monoxide poisoning, decompression sickness (the bends), and chronic bone infections (osteomyelitis). It’s also being researched for its potential in treating various neurological conditions and other chronic health issues.

Is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy safe?

Yes, when administered by trained medical professionals and under controlled conditions, HBOT is generally considered safe. However, it’s important to undergo a thorough evaluation to determine if you are a suitable candidate for HBOT and to discuss any potential risks and benefits with your healthcare provider.

How many sessions of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy are typically required?

The number of sessions needed varies depending on the specific condition being treated, its severity, and how well you respond to the therapy. Some conditions may require daily sessions over several weeks, while others may only need a few treatments. Your doctor will determine the appropriate treatment plan for you.

Is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy covered by insurance?

In many cases, HBOT is covered by insurance for approved medical conditions. However, coverage may vary based on the insurance provider, the specific condition being treated, and other factors. It’s advisable to check with your insurance company to understand the extent of coverage for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.
