Will mild hyperbaric therapy and or EECP help my condition?

Whether HBOT or EECP will be beneficial for your personal circumstances is best discussed with your physician. To research the effects of these therapies on a particular condition or disease you can do a search for “EECP and (the condition)” or “HBOT and the condition.”

What is Mild Hyperbaric Therapy?

Mild hyperbaric therapy refers to Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy at lower, safer, pressure. In a hyperbaric oxygen chamber, the air pressure is increased to three times higher than normal air pressure. Under these conditions, your lungs can gather more oxygen than would be possible breathing pure oxygen at normal air pressure. Your blood carries this oxygen throughout your body.

This helps fight bacteria and stimulate the release of substances called growth factors and stem cells, which promote healing. Why it’s done Your body’s tissues need an adequate supply of oxygen to function. When tissue is injured, it requires even more oxygen to survive. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy increases the amount of oxygen your blood can carry.

What is EECP?

EECP is Enhanced external counter pulsation, It is a non invasive outpatient treatment which uses several blood pressure cuffs on both legs to gently, but firmly, compress the blood vessels there to boost blood flow to your heart. Each wave is timed to your heartbeat. So more blood goes there when it’s relaxing. When your heart pumps again, pressure is released right away. This lets blood be pumped more easily to the heart. EECP helps some small blood vessels in your heart to open. This gives more blood flow to your heart muscle.
