   INTRODUCTION
Because of the recognition Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is finally receiving and the many questions potential users have when trying to learn about HBOT, we have put this manual together in an attempt to make your education on HBOT easier.  

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT), or more appropriately, High Dosage Oxygen Therapy (HDOT) is fast moving to the forefront as one of the most successful therapies for many medical conditions, especially in the areas of brain injury which involve anoxia.   Unfortunately, the Medical community is slow to recognize this since HBOT is not included in the curriculum of the medical schools.   This is beginning to change and more MD's are beginning to recommend HBOT to their patients.   This web page is to help you understand more about HBOT and how it works.  We will use links to other pages with information which may be useful in your decision on whether HBOT is for you.  We take no responsibility for the content herein as we have no control over the links we provide, however, we try to include links which which we feel are factual and accurate.   The ultimate responsibility to verify and understand information on any therapy is in your hands.  This internet manual is provided as an information page only.  If you find other pages which may provide valuable and good information for others in making decisions on whether to include HBOT as part of their therapy program, please email the link to me by CLICKING HERE .

CONTENTS

Following are information pages which may be provided by us or, in many cases, may be a part of another web page.  Our main focus is on neurological conditions, however, there are many other conditions which HBOT has shown to benefit and some which may have a neurological connection which are included.   Please advise us if you find links which should be included.  We will not attempt to include wound therapy or other indications which are among the UHMS acceptable indications.  Those indications can be seen by CLICKING HERE
