Before you begin your Hyperbaric oxygen therapy session, there are a few necessary and simple preparations. Speak with your healthcare provider for a referral to our facility. Stay away from caffeine, alcohol, and carbonated beverages prior to treatment. For best results tobacco products and smoking should be avoided during the weeks of your treatment. If possible, wear 100% cotton comfortable clothing to your treatment. We will also provide cotton garments and shoe covers if you so require. Do not bring synthetic clothing, hair pieces, cellphones, ointments, battery-powered devices such as hearing aids and watches, and other personal items into the chamber. Please note that hyperbaric oxygen therapy may change the effects of some medications. Therefore, your primary doctor may need to make some adjustments. Please make sure the hyperbaric doctor knows ahead of time what prescription and over the counter drugs you are taking. If you need to take any medications during treatment, please inform us as well so that you may take them as needed. Clean your ears thoroughly to ensure that your ears are clear of excessive wax. If you’ve had any issues pertaining to your ears, including an ear infection, water in your ears, ear surgery, a sinus infection, etc, please discuss with your primary doctor prior to treatment and also inform our knowledgeable team.
