Ischemia-reperfusion injury (IRI) or reoxygenation injury, is the tissue damage caused when blood returns to tissue after a period of ischemia (lack of oxygen). The Hyperbaric oxygen therapy interrupts the leukocyte adhesion on the vascular walls, diminishing inflammatory effects while inducing free radical scavengers to block tissue damage.
The Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy can help to reduce the spread of certain toxins and it will
increase the concentration of oxygen in your tissues. This can reduce the risk of infections and will help your body to defend itself from multiple diseases.
Wounds that cause damage to your blood vessels can release a fluid that causes swelling. The swelling can cause a deprivation of oxygen to the damaged cells, and may cause some tissue to die. Hyperbaric oxygen treatments help reduce the swelling by supplying the damaged tissues with oxygen.

Make sure you keep hydrated throughout the day, and avoid alcohol or carbonated drinks prior to treatment. It's best to avoid smoking and any other tobacco products during your treatment period, as they interfere with the body's ability to transport oxygen and can counteract the benefits of hyperbaric therapy.
Generally, this depends on the condition, and how often the treatments are getting done. Anyone who needs oxygen treatment should consider committing to at least a couple of sessions per week as a bare minimum. Many patients see great results with one treatment per day.
Hyperbaric oxygen treatments are painless, and comfortable. You lay on a soft mattress within the chamber with a pillow, and a blanket. The experience itself is comparable to driving up or down a mountain road, or changing altitudes in an airplane.
Feeling tired after your treatment is normal. Mild discomfort in your ears or sinuses, or the feeling of fluid buildup in your ear is also normal. These effects will diminish within 24-48 hours.
