Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HbOT) as a therapeutic approach to reduce the symptoms of long COVID and improve patients’ quality of life.

What is Long Covid?

Long COVID is a condition affecting people who have recovered from COVID-19 but continue to have symptoms weeks or even months later, including

  • Exhaustion
  • Shortness of breath
  • Cognitive impairment

Research has shown HbOT for long COVID to provide a drug free and non-invasive therapy option.

Can HbOT help with Long COVID?

Although long COVID has no known cure, HbOT for long COVID has been shown to promote healing by improving oxygen flow into the body.

HbOT is inhaling almost pure oxygen while within a hyperbaric chamber pressurised to levels greater than atmospheric pressure.

This treatment has been demonstrated to boost blood flow and oxygen supply to the body, which can aid in:

  • Decreasing inflammation
  • Promoting healing
  • Strengthening the immune system

Please Note: Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy complements conventional treatments. We do not recommend it as a replacement. If you are unsure, please consult your doctor.

The benefits for patients of HbOT for long COVID

Although HbOT for long COVID is not a cure for the condition, it can dramatically reduce symptoms and improve the quality of life for patients.

It does this by increasing the flow of oxygen into the body, which reduces inflammation and promotes healing, thus alleviating the symptoms of long COVID.

The research on HbOT for long COVID

A recent study on HbOT for long COVID published in Medical Gas Research looked into the possible benefits for patients suffering with this disorder.

The study comprised 42 individuals who had healed from COVID-19 but still experienced symptoms including weariness, shortness of breath, and cognitive impairment.

During the course of two weeks, the patients received a total of ten HbOT for long COVID treatments.

The study’s findings were encouraging.

According to the researchers, the symptoms of participants improved significantly after undergoing HbOT, experiencing a decrease in weariness and shortness of breath, and an improvement in cognitive function.

In addition, the researchers noted that the treatment had no adverse effects on the patients.

Ultimately, HbOT for long COVID has been demonstrated as a safe and effective therapy option for the alleviation of symptoms, when used alongside conventional treatments.
