HOW DOES OXYGEN THERAPY HELP TO HEAL WOUNDS?
If you have suffered a sports injury, you will know how painful it can be. Even though the healing process is unquestionably spectacular, it can occasionally take a little longer than you'd want, especially to heal deeper wounds. Wouldn't it be great if you could speed up the wound healing process? Hydroxy Therapy has recently gained significant attention in wellness-related environments due to its potential for wound healing and sports recovery.
HOW DOES AIRPOD HYDROXY THERAPY WORK?
A mix of oxygen and hydrogen is delivered by the AirPod Hydroxy treatment at pressures of 1.1, 1.2, and 1.35 ATA, making it an efficient, safe, and cutting-edge restorative therapy. It has been shown via scientific research that 1-4% of hydrogen inhalation is the ideal range. Each AirPod treatment session includes a 2% hydrogen infusion from the AirPod Hydroxy.
For faster and more effective wound healing, hyperbaric oxygen treatment employs a unique pressure chamber to enhance the amount of oxygen in your blood. To boost the amount of oxygen that can circulate through the body through blood plasma and red blood cells by 35%, the AirPod uses the oxygen already present in the environment and delivers it under pressure.
Your lungs can take in more oxygen during these higher-pressure conditions than they do at the standard air pressure, and the extra oxygen is then dissolved into the blood plasma. As a result, the body's tissues, brain, and organs receive higher oxygen delivery rates to promote repair, relaxation, and regeneration.
HOW IS MOLECULAR HYDROGEN IMPORTANT IN AIRPOD HYDROXY THERAPY?
High-pressure oxygen therapy and hydrogen therapy are used in AirPod Hydroxy therapy. H2 is so weakly reactive that it only interacts with powerful oxidants. During HBO treatment, hydrogen gas suppresses the amounts of DNA damage and lipid peroxidation. A potent antioxidant, hydrogen targets and scavenges harmful reactive oxygen species (ROS) with selectivity, preventing illness and aging.
Since the complicated underlying mechanisms go beyond straightforward hydroxyl radical scavenging, molecular hydrogen is a potential therapeutic option for many ailments.
HEALTH BENEFITS OF HYDROXY THERAPY FOR ATHLETES
1. PROMOTES WOUND HEALING
Hydroxy Therapy promotes wound healing by supplying oxygen-rich plasma to tissues that are oxygen deficient. Due to wound injuries, the blood vessels in the body can be damaged, which leads to the release of fluid that seeps into the tissues and produces swelling. Tissue then begins to deteriorate due to the oxygen deprivation caused by the swelling. While oxygenating the tissues, oxygen chamber therapy lowers the swelling. The chamber's increased pressure raises the blood's oxygen levels. Hydroxy therapy breaks the vicious cycle of swelling, oxygen deprivation, and tissue damage.
2. PRODUCES GROWTH FACTORS
Potent proteins known as growth factors control the ability of our body's cells to differentiate and develop. The growth factors in blood platelets are triggered by Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT), which saturates and increases the percentage of oxygen. Fibroblast and Leucocytes, two crucial elements in the healing of wounds, are also stimulated. Oxygen chamber therapy encourages the action of growth factors, which fosters the ideal circumstances for wound healing.
3. REJUVENATES SKIN CELLS
The process of angiogenesis is crucial for the growth of new blood vessels. Tissue cannot live or heal after damage without angiogenesis. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy can directly stimulate and enhance the development of new blood vessels since oxygen levels in the body directly affect the rate and efficiency of angiogenesis.
4. ENHANCES COLLAGEN PRODUCTION
HBOT also promotes healthy collagen production, one of the essential elements in the growth of blood vessels. Up to 80% of the dry weight of our skin is made up of collagen. It is the main structural element of the skin that organizes itself into bundles of woven fibres, serving as the skin's structural framework. Lack of collagen prevents the growth of collagen and the strengthening of new capillary tubes
.5. INCREASES TISSUE OXYGENATION
Through HBOT therapy, tissue is exposed to increased oxygen levels, which is believed to promote healing. In hyper oxygenated tissues, re-epithelialization occurs. It is an increase in the epithelial cells responsible for repairing wounds and building a barrier on the skin. According to studies, tissue hyperoxygenation using hydroxy therapy can boost wound closure rates by as much as 69%. It has significant advantages for diabetic people who are more likely to sustain non-healing wounds.
6. PREVENTS TISSUE DAMAGE
Severe tissue damage occurs when the blood supply is restored to the tissues after they have been depleted of oxygen. For example, when a crush injury interrupts blood flow, a chain of events inside the injured cells causes the generation of dangerous oxygen radicals. These chemicals have the potential to harm tissues permanently. They stop blood flow by causing the blood vessels to constrict. Oxygen and Hydrogen Therapy helps the body's oxygen radical scavengers find the complex molecules and promotes repair.
7. AIDS IN TREATMENT OF TBI
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a condition that affects millions of individuals each year. It is caused by falls, slips, auto accidents, and other injuries. Treatment for TBI may be very challenging. Recent research has shown that hyperbaric treatment for wounds helps treat certain forms of traumatic brain injuries. Patients with TBI who received therapy had better blood flow and other advantages.
