A careful evaluation is needed prior to commencement of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. Patients are screened for any health problems or history of those, as well as medications they are presently taking. There are some conditions and medications that contra-indicate Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.
The initial evaluation report is forwarded to your primary caregiver, typically your family doctor or specialist. Included with the report are our recommendations for a potential therapy schedule. A typical schedule includes a daily session of hyperbaric oxygen 5 days per week. More serious medical conditions may require more intensive therapy with 2 sessions per day.
