Cardiovascular disease, presented as its name indicates vascular damage or circulatory deficiency (ischemia) and heart rates, and low levels of concentration and availability of oxygen in the blood or tissues (hypoxia); example is the damage to heart muscle after a heart attack.

    Hyperbaric oxygenation (HBOT) stimulates the formation of new blood capillaries and regeneration of existing ones, improving the micro and macro circulation, decreased interstitial edema and promotes collagen synthesis and fibroblast proliferation, optimizing the biosynthetic and reparative processes tissues.

Benefits of HBOT in icardiovascular complications or diseases:

    • Reduces biochemical alterations resulting from over-exertion in ischemic muscles
    • It promotes erythrocyte deformity, facilitating the microcirculation
    • Relieves pain in both exercise and rest
    • Prevents recurrence of ischemic
    • It stimulates the regeneration of heart muscle
    • Decreases red blood cell hemolysis
    • Improves myocardial contractility
    • Decreases platelet aggregation
    • Improves overall circulation
    • Reduces cardiac workload

Conditions and diseases treatable with HBOT:

    • Hematology: sickle cell crisis, severe bleeding, anemia
    • Central vasculopathy: shock, myocardial infarction and ischemia
    • Peripheral vascular disease: ulcers, ischemia, gangrene
    • Obstruction of central retinal artery
    • Congenital heart disease of the newborn
    • Acute arterial insufficiency
    • Stroke
    • Arteriosclerosis
    • Thrombophlebitis
