Air or Gas Embolism
An air or gas embolism refers to a bubble moving in the blood stream that could obstruct the flow of blood to the body’s vital organs and tissues.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is the primary treatment for an air or gas embolism because the increased atmospheric pressure reduces the bubble’s size and helps it dissolve in the bloodstream.
How you will benefit from HBOT
- Increased atmospheric pressure reduces the size of bubbles and helps them dissolve into the bloodstream
