BS-HP600 Veterinary Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber for Animal Clinic
How does it work?
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) has been used in human medicine for years in the treatment of acute and chronic diseases that suffer from a lack of oxygen. Safely and painlessly, oxygen delivered to the patient in the hyperbaric chamber is inhaled and absorbed by the body at pressure many times greater than when breathing oxygen at normal sea level pressure. Under hyperbaric pressure, healing oxygen is dissolved in the blood plasma, cerebrospinal and lymph fluids, enabling oxygen to reach damaged tissue at least 3 to 4 times farther than normally diffused by red blood cells. This is especially important in swollen and inflamed tissues where small blood vessels have been spread apart and oxygen from red blood cells is unable to diffuse out far enough to supply the needs of damaged cells.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a treatment in which the animal is placed in a hyperbaric chamber, a pressure of more than 1.4 ATA is applied and the animal is given oxygen to inhale.
Suitable animals: Small animals, poultry, rodents, reptiles, etc.
The application for BS-HP 600 HBOT in veterinary medicine are much the same as in human medicine: increased oxygen delivery to cells in the body. The result of the increased delivery of oxygen to damaged tissues is the relief of inflammation, pressure, and edema caused by injury or infection. In addition, the increased levels of oxygen promote angiogenesis (new blood vessel formation), stimulates wound healing and can help the body fight infection.
