Air or Gas Embolism

In a rare and dangerous condition, an air or gas embolism is an air bubble that has entered a vein or artery. It can travel the brain, heart, or lungs and cause a stroke, heart failure, or respiratory failure. Air can enter a vein accidentally during certain medical procedures, from trauma to the lung or during scuba diving.

Small embolisms can dissipate naturally without causing serious problems, but a large air/gas embolism can be fatal unless treated quickly. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a painless, well-established treatment for air embolisms. HBOT delivers 100 percent oxygen under pressure, causing the embolism to shrink and be absorbed into the bloodstream.


We administer the latest hyperbaric technology in a comfortable, private setting. Treatment takes place in a clear acrylic chamber where you comfortably recline and view your surroundings at all times. Our experienced treatment team monitors you throughout the procedure.
