The use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy as an exciting adjunctive therapy has provided veterinarians with another option to significantly improve small animal medical care, and has been used in the treatment of multiple conditions over the past decade.
Treatment in the hyperbaric oxygen chamber increases pressure around the patient and causes the body to dissolve more oxygen into the blood, plasma and other body fluids and not by red blood cells alone. Higher amount of oxygen reaches the tissues where the blood supply is compromised, thus, improving and speeding up the healing process.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy or “HBOT” is most often used as an “adjunctive treatment.” This means that is employed in conjunction with other forms of pet health care and is a part of the total medical treatment package or care regime.
HBOT utilizes oxygen, provided at optimal levels can have profound anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and tissue healing benefits. It can accelerate healing dramatically and assist in conditions where there is an oxygen deficit.
According to the Veterinary Hyperbaric Medicine Society (VHMS), USA position statement, the use of HBOT has the potential to accelerate the normal healing process and thus the potential to enhance the health and welfare of animals.
Over the past decade, Veterinary Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (VHBOT) is being routinely used in veterinary medicine to treat swelling, trauma, non-healing wounds, infections, sepsis, pancreatitis, stroke & other serious ailments. Small animal clinics world wide have performed over millions of procedures on various conditions, have saved lives and benefited small animals in a wide variety of hard to heal clinical conditions. In Japan and in orient nations, hyperbaric oxygen therapy is used regularly for small animal wellness treatments.
VHBOT is still largely an under utilized modality in veterinary medicine in many parts of the globe including India.
Veterinary Hyperbaric oxygen therapy often called VHBOT can be of great help to veterinary patients by speeding up the healing process and may reduce or eliminate the need for more invasive procedures such as surgery, oftentimes resulting in a net savings of time and cost of treatment for pet owners.
