• I want to go through hyperbaric oxygen therapy, how should I proceed?

    If you want to start with the hyperbaric oxygen therapy, you need to contact us by phone or email. It is also possible to consult us in person at our premisses. During the first contact, we evaluate whether your diagnosis is treatable in the chamber, what health documentation you need to submit for initial screening, and we will also agree the timeline of your treatment options.

  • Do I need to see a doctor before the therapy?

    Before each series of expositions, you will get a medical check-up by a medical practitioner at our center. During the medical check-up, we will evaluate your health documentation and discuss your expectations for this treatment. Your medical practitioner will also recommend the appropriate number of therapeutic sessions based on your diagnosis and current health conditions.

  • Do I need a specialist examination before the therapy?

    In addition to the initial check-up with our medical practitioner, for your safety it is also necessary to perform an ENT examination, including tympanometry, which will examine the function of the hearing tube. We may also make this examination in our center. Other necessary examinations depend on your health conditions and the recommendations of your medical practitioners. You will be informed on those examinations during the first consultation.

  • Is there a need for special clothing in the Oxygen Chamber?

    For safety reasons, you need 100% cotton clothing which will be provided for your therapy. A cloakroom with lockable cabinets for personal belongings is also part of the center.

  • What is the procedure of the exposure in the hypertension oxygen chamber?

    Expozícia sa začína kompresiou, fázou počas ktorej tlak v komore narastá. Ste vystavený zmenám tlaku vzduchu, preto je dôležité vyrovnávať špeciálnym manévrom tlak v ušiach. K dispozícii máte priamo v komore žuvačky, cukríky a vodu. Následne Vám zdravotnícky personál nasadí tvárovú masku, alebo certifikovanú helmu. Vo fáze izokompresie klienti dýchajú pod tlakom čistý kyslík. Poslednou fázou je dekompresia, tlak v komore klesá na hodnoty atmosférického tlaku a je dôležité, aby ste opakovali manéver na vyrovnanie tlaku v ušiach. Krátko pred ukončením expozície Vám zdravotný personál sníme masku.

  • Can I communicate with attending personnel during an exposure?

    Celý priebeh expozície je pod zdravotníckym a technickým dohľadom. Nad každým sedadlom máte k dispozícii červené tlačidlo, ktorým v prípade problémov s dýchaním, nevoľnosti alebo núdze upozorníte obsluhujúci personál hyperbarickej komory.

  • Can I take a book in the chamber?

    Because the therapy in the chamber takes some time, you can bring a book or magazine. There are also 2 TV screens with programs based on the needs of our patients in the room. There are also books and magazines in the waiting room for you to use.

  • Does hyperbaric oxygen therapy have some contraindications?

    Like any medical procedure, hyperbaric oxygen therapy has its own risks and contraindications. We do our best to detect potential issues during the initial examination, therefore we ask you for your full cooperation and truthful information. In the following cases, your medical practitioner may recommend you do not proceed with the therapy or at least postpone till after your issue has been resolved or health  condition improves:

    • conditions after chest injuries, lung diseases

    • treatment with some medicines (doxymycin, cisplatin, antabus …)

    • acute infection of the upper respiratory tract, beneficial cavities and ears

    • Claustrophobia

    • diseases accompanied by cervical conditions

    • pregnancy

    If you suffer from any of the above,, please let us know and follow the instructions of our medical practitioners.

  • Do special conditions apply to the treatment of children in your center?
