One of the largest hyperbaric treatment centers in the world, The Sagol Center for Hyperbaric Medicine and Research at Shamir Medical Center, announced exciting results from a recent study; leading the medical industry to believe that a HBOT protocol could indeed be used as an effective and sustainable therapy to increase cardiac function among the elderly.
For the first time in humans, using our HBOT protocol, we have demonstrated the possibility of heart functionality improvement in healthy, aging people. The results of this study are in accordance with other studies demonstrating that HBOT can improve mitochondrial function.”
31 patients in the study underwent 60 treatments of hyperbaric oxygen therapy. All patients had “normal for their age” cardiac function at the start of treatment. “Results indicated an increase in left ventricular ejection fraction following 60 HBOT sessions, and higher global and regional left ventricular strain (efficacy of cardiac muscle contraction)”.
