Sudden Sensorineural Hearing Loss*
Sudden sensorineural hearing loss, or more commonly known as sudden deafness, is an unexplained, rapid loss of hearing. It typically occurs in one ear and can happen either at once or over a span of a few hours to several days.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is indicated for the treatment of idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss to increase blood flow and transport more oxygen to the inner ear and nerve cells. Doing so can help reduce swelling, promote stem cell growth and aid in fighting bacteria and infections.
*Approved by the Undersea Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS), and not the FDA.
How you will benefit from HBOT
- Increases oxygen tension in the blood and tissues and dissolves extra oxygen in the blood plasma to better supply the structures, fluids, and nerves of the inner ear
- Reduces inflammation and swelling
