Bumrungrad International is one of the few Thai health providers offering Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy using world class technology.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a treatment in which a patient breathes 100% oxygen intermittently while inside a treatment chamber at an atmospheric pressure greater than normal sea level.

HBOT immediately increases the amount of oxygen in your blood. This helps all the functions of your body that require oxygen. Increased oxygen levels can even be used to fight off infections and inflammations since it improves the function of our white blood cells.

HBOT is a non-invasive, painless course of treatment used for various conditions and illnesses. It allows patients to breathe pure oxygen under increased air pressure, with a typical treatment lasting 60-90 minutes. The number of sessions needed depends on the purpose of the treatment.
