PRMEDICA continues to expand the range of services to patients who seek an adjunct treatment for stem cell and exosome therapy at the clinic in Mexico.
In March the clinic will install a medical-grade HYPERBARIC CHAMBER that can administer pure oxygen (02) up to 6 atmospheres in a pressurized chamber for the treatment of a wide range of medical conditions.
Clinical applications of Hyperbaric Oxygen (HBO) can be used as a primary mode of therapy in carbon monoxide poisoning, cerebral arterial gas syndrome, decompression sickness, osteoradionecrosis, and clostridial gas gangrene.
At the clinic, HBO is most commonly used as an adjunct for patients having stem cell and exosome therapy. Hyperbaric oxygenation helps strengthen the immune system, regulates metabolism and blood pressure, increases cell regeneration, prevents and fights infections, improves blood circulation, balances the nervous system, and is anti-inflammatory among other benefits.
At PRMEDICA the cost of hyperbaric therapy is $140 US per session, and the cost can be reduced based on the number of sessions. All sessions are supervised by doctors trained in Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.

What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a medical treatment by which 100% oxygen is administered at greater than normal pressure to treat specific medical indications. Hyperbaric therapy is very beneficial for healing from all manner of injuries and wounds. The increased oxygen at the cellular level, along with the gentle pressure, helps bring down inflammation and swelling quickly, increases circulation to compromised tissues and the oxygen kills any bacteria, viruses, or fungus present in the wound.
How HBO Therapy Works?
The patient is placed in a specially designed chamber. The pressure in the chamber is increased, and 100% oxygen is breathed. HBO treatment pressures are usually between 2 or 3 times greater than normal atmospheric pressure.
Therapy lasts from 1 to 2 hours at full pressure depending on the patient medical condition. During the process of HBO therapy, cells become saturated with oxygen to a far greater degree than they ever could be under normal pressure.
Benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Oxygen is essential to any healing process. Through HBOT, the concentration of the oxygen dissolved in the bloodstream is thus raised many times above normal (up to 2000%). This high concentration of oxygen is used to accelerate the healing process (tissue regeneration via neo-angiogenesis) after any plastic surgery, wound care, burn victims, many neuralgic, orthopedic, and emergency conditions, as well as systematic-degenerative diseases.
In addition to the blood, all body fluids (including the lymph and cerebral-spinal fluids) are infused with the healing benefits of this molecular oxygen.
It can reach bone and tissues which are not accessible by the red blood cells, enhance white blood cells function, and promote the formation of new capillary and peripheral blood vessels (neo-angiogenesis).
The result in the application of this therapy is reflected on increased control of infections and a faster healing of a wide range of medical conditions.
With HBOT, patients have remained free of opportunistic infections, experiencing relief from chronic fatigue and maintain their body weight.
It is important to emphasize that in addition to the specific purpose for its use, HBOT is particularly effective as an aesthetic treatment for rejuvenation, anti-aging (skin toner, cellulite, and wrinkles reduction). More saturation of oxygen in tissues will result in high levels of collagen, and stimulation of the immune system (among other benefits).
Also, some patients report mental clarity and more concentration, renewed energy, and reduction of fatigue following HBOT treatments. Other uses are for the treatment of certain cardiovascular conditions. HBOT has also increasingly been used by professional sports teams and Olympic athletes to improve their strength and performance and faster healing in injuries.
What medical conditions and pathologies are treated with HBOT?
Accepted indications for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy involves a wide range of clinical conditions including:
Air or Gas Embolism Decompression Sickness
Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
Closed Head Injuries
Blast Crush Injury (compartment syndrome and other acute traumatic ischemia)
Selected Refractory Anaerobic Infections
Exceptional Blood Loss (Anemia)
Necrotizing Soft Tissue
Radiation Necrosis (Osteoradionecrosis and Soft Tissue Radiation Necrosis)
Side effects of Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy (related with cancer treatments)
