Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy For Long Covid Symptoms
A Promising New Approach
Evidence is accumulating for effective treatment of Long Covid symptoms with medical standard Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy – using 100% medical Oxygen at a pressure of 2.4 atmospheres (ATA). It is important to ensure the appropriate standard of treatment is provided to obtain the full benefits as cited in the available studies.
“Wellness centres” and some other “hyperbaric operators” cannot achieve the cited relevant standards (2.4 ATA, 100% medical Oxygen as the prescribed medication, and 2 hour duration approx.)
Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment should only be carried out in a certified medical device that includes an ante-chamber. Before undergoing treatment, all patients should be medically screened to ensure patient safety.
At Oxycare, we normally only accept consultant referrals. Due to delays accessing Long COVID clinics, we are considering referrals from patients’ family doctors.
