What Can I Expect Prior to Starting Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) Treatments?
Hyerbaric Oxygen Therapy – what to expect
All potential HBOT patients are required to have a full medical review before commencing treatment. Each consulting patient is assessed, to ensure that it is safe to expose him or her to oxygen under pressure.
The medical review includes:
- Medical health history
- Checking the ears for the ability to equalize under pressure
- Checking lungs. Chest X-rays and pulmonary function tests may be required
- Eye examination may be required, if ongoing HBOT treatments are required
- Any other tests your doctor requires, depending upon your condition and state of health
