The soft-sided HBOT chamber is comfortable for two adults, sitting up or lying down, or a single adult sitting in a chair. An appointment typically lasts one hour: five minutes for the chamber to get up to pressure and five minutes to come back down, leaving 50 minutes at 4psi.
The experience of increased air pressure in the Hyperbaric chamber is usually pain-free and is similar to the air pressure changes felt while flying in airplanes. The most common side-effect of HBOT is pressure-related discomfort in the middle ear, but this can be minimized with the use of included spiraled earplugs. HBOT is non-invasive, safe, and works well when combined with other treatments.
