Kristyn’s HBOT Experience

Triumphing Over Carbon Monoxide Poisoning with Extivita’s Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

“When I was in the hospital I had three treatments, that’s all insurance would pay for. A nurse at the hospital recommended Extivita. It’s helping my memory. Those around me say they notice a difference, so that makes me feel positive about it.”

Kristyn suffered from carbon monoxide poisoning which significantly impacted her short-term memory. While in the hospital, she received three treatments of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT), which were covered by her insurance. However, her mother believed that more sessions could be beneficial, leading them to Extivita upon a nurse’s recommendation. Despite initial nervousness due to concerns about ear pressure at depth, Kristyn found the treatment depth of 33 feet manageable and proceeded with her therapy at Extivita.


Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Kristyn suffered from carbon monoxide poisoning, which is known to deprive the brain of oxygen, leading to potential neurological issues. In Kristyn’s case, it significantly affected her short-term memory, making daily life challenging.

Inital Treatment

Initially, Kristyn received three HBOT treatments in the hospital, which were covered by her insurance. These initial treatments likely began the process of alleviating the effects of carbon monoxide poisoning by delivering a higher concentration of oxygen to her brain and other tissues, which is crucial for healing.

Memory Improvement

The continued HBOT sessions at Extivita played a significant role in improving Kristyn’s short-term memory. The enhanced oxygen delivery to her brain tissues helped in mitigating the effects of carbon monoxide poisoning, leading to noticeable improvements in her memory. This improvement was affirmed by those around her, who also noticed a positive change.
