At Clinica Ricardo Palma we have a hyperbaric medicine service, also known as hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which consists of the medical use of pure oxygen at high pressure, which causes the body to have 20 times more oxygenation in all cells. This treatment is carried out through a pressurized chamber called the Hyperbaric Chamber.
Dr. César Carozzi, general surgeon and specialist in hyperbaric medicine, comments that at this pressure level O2 becomes a medicine with many uses, making cells work more effectively and efficiently. That is why hyperbaric oxygen therapy contributes to the treatment of people with post-COVID-19 sequelae, who have developed vascular alterations in all organs, some of which are more serious.
Some of the sequelae generated by the exaggerated inflammatory response to the virus in the body are:
Hyperbaric oxygen is a great anti-inflammatory, so when we hyper oxygenate the entire body, it will restore damaged tissues shortening recovery times.
Our leading specialist recommends taking 10 sessions of hyperbaric oxygen therapy to improve symptoms of post-COVID-19 sequelae.
