Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is an innovative treatment that consists of providing oxygen to patients at pressures higher than ordinary atmospheric pressure. This treatment is used for a wide variety of medical conditions ranging from skin burns and scuba diving accidents to neurological problems such as autism, cerebral palsy and multiple sclerosis.

Medicare reimburses the use of HBOT for as many as 14 different conditions, and doctors may prescribe it for numerous other conditions also.

Liberals typically oppose or disparage the use of HBOT, often without being able to articulate a reason why. It may simply because they are antilife.

Example

One western hospital describes its new hyperbaric facility, which is the only one in its region, as follows:[1]

Non-healing or “chronic” wounds can include foot ulcers in people with diabetes, leg ulcers from vein problems, bed sores, and infected wounds. If unrecognized and untreated, chronic wounds can lead to amputation of a limb and/or other serious health complications. Once a wound has become chronic, intensive medical intervention is required to make the wound heal. ...
The center provides advanced technologies and techniques along with natural non-pharmaceutical methods for healing problem wounds. ... This therapy involves breathing pure oxygen at up to three times normal atmospheric pressure. The pressure forces oxygen to tissues affected by injury or disease and accelerates the body's healing process. Statistical evidence shows that hyperbaric oxygen therapy is one of the safest and most effective modalities for healing problem wounds.
