I have started my second week of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy or HBOT.
Entering the "clinic" you're greeted by a receptionist and directed to a dressing room. There is a rack of scrubs against one wall in different sizes. They consist of top's and pants. Against another wall lockers, one with my name on it. All of this is located in an ante room next to men's and women's dressing rooms. The dressing room is small an has a bench. After changing into scrubs you take your cloths and phone and deposit them in the locker. Walking out of the dressing rooms you cross the hall and enter a large darkened room. In the room are Three gurneys and Three large glass tubes or "dive chambers". A tech helps you on to the gurney. He asks you if you need a blanket or a bottle of water. You take the blanket. He asks what you want to watch Netflix or films they have available. You tell him Netflix the Queen season two. There is a screen
attached to the top of each tube angled for viewing. He wheels you into the tube and closes the door.
As the tube fills with pressurized oxygen it feels like you're in the cabin of a ascending jet with all that implies. Ultimately your ears pop and you lie there, watching the Queen for an hour and fifteen minutes. The tech comes by and gives a thumbs up every so often up looking for the same response. The tech lets you know your done by pointing his finger up, and hitting a switch to depressurize the tube. after the pressure has subsided, it takes about five minutes, he opens the tube and wheels you out. You head back to the dressing room and change back into your street cloths. The whole process soon becomes routine. Thus far I've seen no improvement but it's still early days.
