Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), is basically 100% oxygen inhalation, at a pressure greater than that of sea level, it being 2.4 absolute atmospheres (i.e. ATA ; where 1 ATA = 760 mmHg). When oxygen is used as a drug, the doze is controlled by technologically operated oxygen chamber, which sets the dosage at 100% oxygen and controls its absorption by pressure. Molecular oxygen has a central role in repair, collagen synthesis, matrix formation, angiogenesis, epithelialization and bacterial killing.
