Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)


Oxygen is essential to life and the air we breathe is only 21% oxygen.

Pure oxygen is inhaled in a pressurized chamber as part of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), which allows your lungs to absorb up to three times as much oxygen as usual. The body's natural healing process is aided by the high oxygen concentration, which is beneficial for patients with a range of medical conditions.

Benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy include:

  • Increased oxygen delivery to injured tissues, promoting faster healing
  • Improved circulation
  • Reduced inflammation
  • Enhanced immune system function
  • Reduction in swelling and fluid buildup
  • Decreased risk of infection
  • Improved neurological function in some cases, including stroke and traumatic brain injury
  • Reduced symptoms of chronic conditions such as fibromyalgia and multiple sclerosis
  • Accelerated recovery after surgery or injury

We provide Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy at Southwest Brain Performance Centers as part of our comprehensive approach to neurological health.

Our team will consult with you to decide whether HBOT is the best course of action for your individual needs, and we'll walk you through the process from beginning to end.

Despite being a completely off-label chamber at SWBPC, HBOT has been used effectively in treating a variety of conditions, such as:

  • Alzheimer’s
  • Athletic Conditioning
  • Chronic Pain
  • Dementia
  • Depression
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Infection
  • Wound Healing
  • Insomnia
  • Memory Loss
  • Migraines
  • Neuropathy
  • Parkinson’s
  • Seizure Disorders
  • Strokes and Traumatic Brain Injury
  • PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Intake Form

If you’ve already contacted us or you are interested in Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, please fill out the Intake Form below. This Intake Form will provide the Hyperbaric Technicians with a more comprehensive medical history.

Our goal is to make treatment as safe and beneficial as possible. To do so, we need to make sure there are no contraindications that could prevent you from getting this treatment. Once we receive the completed Intake Form, we will give you a call to schedule your appointment(s).

Our Hyperbaric Chamber

Our hyperbaric chamber, an off-label Seacrest model, supplies the body with high-pressure oxygen. The pressure inside must be raised above atmospheric pressure in order to deliver oxygen efficiently. However, the atmospheric pressure is lower than at sea level in high elevation regions like here in New Mexico, which has an effect on the body's capacity to use oxygen.

To make up for this, we raise the pressure to 1.5 ATA, which is considered to be safe and effective for hyperbaric treatments at high elevations. By doing this, we can guarantee that our patients get the best results while maintaining their safety.
