Hayden Dunstan from Cumbria Hyperbaric has launched an appeal to bring a Hyperbaric chamber to the County.
Cumbria Hyperbaric hopes to become a leading community provider of elective type 3 hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT).
- Fundraising has now launched on GoFundMe.
"Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is the administration of pure oxygen, breathed through a mask or hood, at higher than atmospheric pressure. This is facilitated by, and delivered in a pressure chamber, also known as a barochamber, diving chamber or hyperbaric chamber. This facilitates far higher concentrations of oxygen in the bloodstream and subsequently, the tissues it feeds.
"HBOT and increased oxygenation up-regulates the natural repair and rebuild processes in the body simply by altering the environment. This leads to accelerated healing and healing where no previous healing has been observed, from a wide range of ailments. It is non-invasive and virtually risk free. Basically, any condition that can benefit from improved cellular respiration and greater oxygen saturation in tissues could benefit from HBOT or as it is also termed HBO2.
"Cumbria Hyperbaric aims to provide a complementary therapy facility in Cumbria at charitable rates, for the health and welfare benefit of the public. Spearheaded by a comprehensive Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy facility to operate at charitable rates for therapy not currently funded by the N.H.S. and ordinarily very costly in the private sector."
