Anemia occurs when you do not have enough red blood cells to transport oxygen throughout your body. This lack of oxygen leads to a variety of different symptoms, where tissues, muscles, and blood vessels are starved of oxygen, possibly leading to permanent damage. HBOT floods the system with oxygen, causing the oxygen levels in the body’s tissue to return to normal. HBOT can bring the body back into a safe zone, allowing treatment of the underlying causes. HBOT is FDA approved for the treatment of severe anemia and is also a front-line treatment choice for sickle cell anemia.
