Thank you for visiting Bellevue
The average human body absorbs over 432 liters of oxygen each day when active and approximately 352 liters when at rest. The green leafy plants of our world provide this vital elemental molecule, and we need it to deliver nutrients to cells for proper circulation and to promote proper tissue function. Oxygen aerates the blood, making it more mobile. It is also a necessary accelerant for use in the cellular metabolization of food. That is why Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy has proven to be an effective supplemental treatment for all manner of illness and injury.
Here at Bellevue Wellness and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy in Nashville, TN, we have developed our signature oxygen therapy facility as a complement to our leading set of holistic treatments to provide the accelerated healing properties this treatment has been proven to deliver to all of our patients.
Wellness and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy in Nashville
In a hyperbaric oxygen therapy session, the patient will enter a sealed therapy chamber where the oxygen content of the air will be elevated to three times normal oxygen levels. In these conditions, the lungs will absorb higher levels of oxygen. The immediate effects can be compared to those experienced during hyperventilation, a technique high-performance athletes will often use to prep for intense activity. However, the effects of hyperbaric oxygen therapy are markedly less disorienting and do not impose the same stress on the lungs, throat, or diaphragm.
As the medical community has developed this powerful therapy over the years, it has been successfully used to treat all of the following conditions:
- Severe anemia
- Brain abscess
- Arterial gas embolism
- Decompression illness
- Carbon monoxide toxicity
- Crushing injuries
- Sudden deafness
- Skin or bone infection that causes necrosis
- Diabetic foot ulcers and other non-healing wounds
- Radiation burns
- Skin grafts or flaps at risk of necrosis
- Sudden vision loss
The above are conditions hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been successfully used to treat. But there are several other conditions clinicians and medical practitioners strongly suspect can also be treated with through hyperbaric oxygen therapy. These include:
- Brain injuries
- Cerebral palsy
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Gastrointestinal ulcers
- Spinal cord injuries
- Sports injuries
