Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Q & A

What is hyperbaric oxygen therapy?

Normally, the air you breathe is about 21% oxygen, 78% nitrogen, and 1% miscellaneous gasses. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy involves sitting and relaxing and inhaling nothing but 100% pure oxygen for an extended period.

Not only is oxygen essential for human life, but it’s also a critical component for cell functioning and signaling. Inhaling pure oxygen can:


  • Increase blood circulation
  • Deactivate and clear toxins
  • Remove metabolic waste
  • Boost your immune system
  • Promote faster tissue healing
  • Decrease swelling and inflammation

In short, hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a natural way to harness your body’s ability to heal itself by stimulating normal cell functioning.

How can hyperbaric oxygen therapy help me?

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy at The Medical Dock is a safe and effective solution for improving your overall health and minimizing side effects associated with acute and chronic disorders. You may benefit from hyperbaric oxygen therapy if you have:

  • Autism or attention-deficit disorder (ADD)

  • Weakened immune system
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is even beneficial if you have a slow-healing wound such as a diabetic foot ulcer, or are trying to recover from surgery.

Do I need multiple hyperbaric oxygen therapy sessions?

When you come into The Medical Dock for your examination, Dr. Ahmad talks with you about your health history and any concerns you may have. He personalizes a hyperbaric oxygen therapy plan based on your specific needs.

It’s common to come in for about two to five hyperbaric oxygen therapy visits each week until your symptoms resolve or until you heal. Once you achieve your health goals, Dr. Ahmad may recommend weekly or monthly maintenance sessions to help you continue feeling your best.

Each hyperbaric oxygen therapy session can take anywhere from 20-40 minutes, so you can conveniently schedule visits during your lunch hour. With no downtime needed, you can return to your regular activities afterward.
