The process step-by-step

How does it work?

Step 1

Making an appointment

In the appointment the patient is seen by a Doctor with competence in Hyperbaric Medicine. During the appointment, the patient describes his situation which will be evaluated by the doctor, and where he verifies the applicability and advantage of a treatment with Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy to his specific case. If you are eligible for treatment then a prescription will be made.

Step 2

Patient preparation

At the beginning of the sessions, patients are prepared according to the protocol which include wearing 100% cotton clothing during treatments.
During the period that the sessions occur (working days and consecutive days) there is a daily follow-up session between the nurse and the doctor about the ongoing process.

Step 3

The hyperbaric chamber

In the Treatment Sessions, patients are always accompanied by a nurse with professional experience in Hyperbaric Medicine treatments.

Step 4

Reassessment Appointment

Having completed the prescribed treatments at the first appointment, a follow-up appointment is made in order to analyse how the treatment is going and possibly consider a new prescription if the situation requires it.

How do we do it?

What we do

HBOT Treatment

Hyperbaric medicine also known as Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) consists of the medical use of oxygen at concentrations of 100% saturation while under pressure within a hyperbaric chamber.

How we do it

Medical equipment

THE HYPERBARIC CENTER OF CASCAIS is the first Portuguese Center of Hyperbaric Medicine with monoplace chambers that allow to make medical treatments up to 3 ATA.

With monoplace chambers it is possible to perform a personalized treatment, suitable for your pathology using for this purpose treatments adjusted to the patient.

HBOT Treatment

Hyperbaric medicine, also known as Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) consists of the medical use of oxygen at concentrations of 100% saturation while under pressure within a hyperbaric chamber.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy treatments assume that the pressure exercised is usually between 2 and 3 ATA (absolute atmospheres), i.e. simulation of diving between 10 and 20 meters deep.

More and more specialists and health professionals use HBOT to enhance the effects or complement the treatments they administer to their patients, making this technique on many occasions the cornerstone of their therapies.

All treatments are followed permanently by technicians with competence in Hyperbaric Medicine assigned by the Order of Physicians and Accredited by the manufacturer of the chambers hyperbaric.

How does it affect our body?

Oxygen breathed under a pressure between 2 and 3 A.T.A. dissolves in the blood plasma favoring cellular metabolism and allowing oxygen to reach the brain, cartilage, bones and tissues, which by various circulatory changes do not receive it properly.

These high oxygen levels produce an anti-infective, anti-inflammatory, anti-edematous, detoxifying effect, contributes to the formation of new vessels and stimulates the formation of collagen, which means an increase in the speed of healing, among other effects.

The best benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy are observed in carbon monoxide poisoning, decompressive diving accident, gas embolism, bacterial infections, diabetic foot wounds and other ischemic ulcers, sudden deafness, among other conditions.
