Severe Acute Anemia (bridge therapy)
Anemia is a lack of blood, specifically red blood cells. The deficiency of red blood cells and hemoglobin reduces the oxygen-carrying capacity of blood, causing pallor, fatigue, weakness, or shock. Causes of anemia include excessive blood loss from internal bleeding or trauma, destruction of red blood cells by disease, or abnormal production of red blood cells in the bone marrow.
The use of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) can be used to treat severe acute anemia. HBOT is used as a bridge therapy in this case until life threatening acute anemia can be resolved by helping to push oxygen through to vital organs.
How you will benefit from HBOT
- Pushes enough oxygen into blood plasma to reach vital organs and tissues
- Increases blood flow
- Creates new blood vessels
- Promotes stem cell mobilization
Did You Know?
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Creates New Blood Vessels. Vascularization or angiogenesis is the creation of new blood vessels. Non-healing wounds, strokes, heart attacks, and many other conditions can dramatically benefit from the enhanced blood flow that occurs with HBOT.
Our experienced clinical team is available to help you identify appropriate candidates for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and to answer any additional questions about HBOT or our facilities. You deserve the best – our mission is to achieve patient success through personalized, innovative, and compassionate care that enhances your healing potential. We do so at the lowest possible out-of-pocket cost for your patients, with only one copay and/or less coinsurance than at a hospital-based HBOT program.
