Hyperbaric chamber

Center of hyperbaric oxygen therapy Košice, Prešov | Slovakia

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is performed in single hyperbaric chamber filled with oxygen. The hyperbaric chamber consists of two transparent acrylic cylinders of length 220 cm, through which is possible to the patient to observe and use communication system with him to communicate. The patient is inserted into the hyperbaic chamber together with the bed on which it is placed. On a special panel is the air conditioning unit with a monitoring device. The hyperbaric chamber can absorb carbon dioxide, the adjustment of temperature and humidity.

In the hyperbaric chamber, it is possible to measure blood pressure, to carry out artificial ventilation, infusion of the lung, to monitor the ECG and heart rate, and also to measure the temperature of the patient. In case of need it is possible to perform a rapid decompression in 20 seconds.

The hyperbaric chamber meets all the criteria of modern therapy.

How to treat hyperbaric oxygen

The essence of the hyperbaric chamber


During the stay of the patient in the hyperbaric chamber, the breathing of pure medical oxygen, which slowly dissolves in the blood plasma. As the rising pressure in the chamber, so also rises the amount of dissolved oxygen in blood plasma.

IN THE hyperbaric CHAMBER, THUS TRANSFERRING OXYGEN IN THE BODY OF THE PATIENT ONLY RED BLOOD CELLS, BUT ALSO BLOOD PLASMA.

That is the difference between the breathing at normal pressure and increased pressure. The oxygen dissolved in the blood plasma gets up to fluid in the intercellular spaces. In this way, it may directly enter into the cells in the body that normally suffer from a lack of oxygen. The function of these cells is gradually restored.

In the hyperbaric chamber may be in the patient's blood up to 20 times more oxygen.

Physiological basis of hyperbaric oxygen therapy is an increase the fraction of dissolved oxygen plasma.


Oxygen is in the blood occurs in two forms
  • chemically bound to hemoglobin
  • physically dissolved in plasma

Hyperbaric oxygen

When breathing air at normal pressure of 101 kPa, hemoglobin is saturated up to 97%. The saturation of hemoglobin is growing with increasing partial pressure of oxygen according to the characteristic curves of dissociation. In contrast, the proportion of the physically dissolve oxygen in the plasma is growing depending on the partial of oxygen is linear in the amount of 0,003 ml/ torr/ 100 ml of blood. This is the coefficient of solubility of oxygen in plasma. 100% saturation of hemoglobin is reached at a PaO2 of about 20 kPa. Any further increase of the pressure of oxygen has no influence on the saturation of hemoglobin.


On the other hand,in increasing the pressure of the oxygen it increases the amount of oxygen physically dissolved in the plasma. At a pressure of 202 kPa in a hyperbaric chamber are the physical dissolved already 4 volume percent oxygen. At a pressure of 303 kPa this is of 6.6 volume percent and the fabric is fed from the amount of oxygen , which corresponds to the arterial-venous the difference. It is therefore theoretically possible to oxygenation tissues was conducted without the presence of hemoglobin.

Treatment options




Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can take every patient regardless of age. We treat newborns whose mothers breastfeeding in the chamber and our oldest patient was 91 years old.
