Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is the use of pressurized oxygen to treat a variety of clinical conditions by increasing the concentration of oxygen within the body making it readily available for complex biochemical processes including production of energy and repair of damaged cells. The treatment is performed within a hyperbaric chamber in which the entire body surface is exposed to compressed gas.
