Acute blood loss anemia (severe anemia) is caused by an immense loss of blood, which reduces the amount of iron in the body. This lack of iron makes the bone marrow unable to increase the production of new blood cells to replace the lost ones. The deficiency of red blood cells reduces the oxygen-carrying capacity of blood, starving tissues and organs of oxygen. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy’s ability to infuse tissues and blood with oxygen makes it an approved treatment for severe anemia caused by blood loss. Less serious types of anemia are more appropriately treated in other ways.
HYPERBARIC OXYGEN THERAPY FOR SEVERE ANEMIA
We administer HBOT in a private setting with the latest hyperbaric technology. Treatment takes place in a clear acrylic chamber where the patient may comfortably recline and view the surroundings at all times. The patient is monitored by the treatment team throughout the procedure.
