Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
« on: January 03, 2008, 03:26:20 PM »
I have done a bit of reading on hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

As it gets more oxygen into the system, I was wondering if any thals have tried this and what the results were.

It does list that insurance covers rare conditions such as anemia, so for those of you who are insured, you may be able to get this covered!

This is from the bay area hyperbarics website:

Conditions and Diagnoses Treated by Hyperbarics that are Typically Covered by Health Insurance:

    * Conditions related to cancer treatments and radiation damage
    * Infections in tissue, muscle, bone or skin, and/or drug resistant infections
    * Sores and gangrene that will not heal or that are related to diabetes
    * Surgical sites with grafts or flaps
    * Bones and/or tissue that are difficult to heal
    * Acute severe problems from accidents (e.g. crushed leg, arm, fingers)
    * Rare conditions such as decompression sickness, anemia, burns, carbon monoxide poisoning, or emboli from air or gas
    * Swelling of the brain, cerebral edema

Medicare-Approved Conditions for Hyperbaric Therapy (reimbursable):

   1. Acute carbon monoxide intoxication
   2. Decompression illness
   3. Gas embolism
   4. Gas gangrene
   5. Acute traumatic peripheral ischemia. HBO therapy is a valuable adjunctive treatment to be used in combination with accepted standard therapeutic measures when loss of function, limb, or life is threatened.
   6. Crush injuries and suturing of severed limbs. As in the previous conditions, HBO therapy would be an adjunctive treatment when loss of function, limb, or life is threatened.
   7. Progressive necrotizing infections (necrotizing fasciitis)
   8. Acute peripheral arterial insufficiency
   9. Treatment of compromised skin grafts
  10. Chronic refractory osteomyelitiis, unresponsive to conventional medical and surgical management
  11. Osteoradionecrosis as an adjunct to conventional treatment
  12. Soft tissue radionecrosis as an adjunct to conventional treatment
  13. Cyanide poisoning
  14. Actinomycosis, only as an adjunct to conventional therapy when the disease process is refractory to antibiotics and surgical treatment.

Commonly Treated Non-Medicare Conditions:

   1. Stroke
   2. Cerebral Palsy
   3. Lyme’s Disease
   4. Autism
   5. Traumatic brain injury
   6. Closed head injury
   7. Coma
   8. Spinal cord injury
   9. Migraine/Cluster Headache
  10. Multiple Sclerosis (certain aspects)
  11. Macular Degneration
  12. Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy and other neurological disorders
  13. Cerebral Edema
  14. Sickle Cell Disease with Crisis
  15. Perineal Crohn’s Disease
  16. Scleroderma
  17. Sudden blindness or deafness
  18. Diabetic blindness
  19. Wounds not covered by Medicare
  20. Skin and other infections
  21. Chronic fatigue symptoms
  22. Eye conditions (such as macular edema)
  23. Peripheral Vascular Disease
  24. Diabetes
  25. Orthopedic problems-sprains/strains chronic or acute/fractures non-healing
  26. Myocardial problems
  27. Selected mental health disorders
  28. Liver detoxification enhancement
  29. Colon disorders
  30. Ulcerative Colitis
  31. Chronic pain

Please have your physician call to consult with us about the benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy to your patients!

Hi Linda!

Good to see your posts again!

Thanks for the research. Is it something like the Ozone therapy that also sounds similar?

Can you tell us more about this therapy?
