OxyZen offer high pressure oxygen therapy in a chamber that reaches a maximum of 2.0 ATA which is the first such chamber on the Australian market. OxyZen do not make any inferences that our equipment or devices are used for medical treatment.
For more than 200 years, the hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been used as a regenerative health treatment and has helped improve the overall well-being of people. Lack of oxygen is one of the most common reasons behind the appearance of numerous illnesses and cell damage.
The therapy is entirely natural and is carried out by exposing the patient to a pressure higher than the atmospheric pressure and supplying them with pure oxygen through special devices called hyperbaric chambers.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) utilizes higher than normal (atmospheric) pressure. During therapy one does not breathe the usual 21% oxygen, but pure oxygen through an oxygen mask.
In the chamber the pressure is up to twice that of the ambient pressure, which is also why we breathe twice the concentration of oxygen, like we would be breathing pure oxygen in the environment or 9.5 times more as if we would be breathing normal air in the environment, which is why effects on our health and well-being are even better.
Hyperbaric therapy (HBOT) has been in use for many years already all over the world for preventing and improvement of many ailments and bettering general health. Any disease that is ischemic (lack of tissue Oxygen) in nature, or has a concurring edema (tissue or nerve swelling) will see a benefit from HBOT.
It is proven that the pressure inside a hyperbaric chamber has to be at least 160 kPa (1.6 bar, 1.6 ATA) in order to achieve the desired therapeutic effect. But only a handful of providers use equipment with such a high pressure. Our company has the knowledge required to achieve this high pressure. Using our own experience and development, we’ve managed to reach new dimensions within the field of hyperbaric medicine.
The compression usually takes 10-20 minutes, depending on the anticipated pressure of the Session, which is decided upon by the trained and certified operator. When the specific pressure is reached, we start timing the Session, which lasts 45-75 minutes at a constant prescribed pressure (Bottom time). During the Session you can rest or nap. The operator watches over you closely for the duration of the Session. After the completed time of the Session, decompression begins for taking the pressure down to atmospheric level, which usually takes as long as compression.
The whole Session lasts for approximately 90 minutes (Run time) and you breathe in pure oxygen all the while through NRB mask.
Operators are trained so that the Session proceeds as relaxed, pleasant and calm as possible.
After the Session in a Hyperbaric Chamber, the effects continue for 6 more hours because of a higher concentration of oxygen in your body. You usually feel great, relaxed, concentrated, energized, but you can also experience a pleasant tiredness. Effects of the Session can be seen right away or a day or two after the Session.
