The effect of mild-pressure hyperbaric therapy (Oasis O2) on fatigue and oxidative stress

The effect of mild-pressure hyperbaric therapy (Oasis O2) on fatigue and oxidative stress

  • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has become increasingly popular among elite athletes and most recently among the general public as a modality to improve fatigue, enhance overall health and well-being, heal sports-related injuries, and promote anti-aging. 

  • This study tested 15 young healthy volunteers to see their improvement with the use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy. 

  • The testing found that mild-pressure hyperbaric therapy reduces oxidative stress as indicated by a significant decrease in serum ROM, and also helps improve fatigue as seen by a significant decrease in VAS fatigue scores.
