Rx-o2 Hyperbaric Clinic is glad to announce promising new research in the use of Hyperbaric Oxygen to treat dementia. With the recent interest in treatments for dementia and the use of Hyperbaric Oxygen, Rx-o2 is promoting a form of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy that may play a role in the prevention and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease, according to a new study.
“We have over 15 years of treating patients in our prescription level hyperbaric chambers. The owners of Serenity A Breath for Life joined Dr. Alexander and Marvin Borsand to expand access to Hyperbaric medicine in the valley. Now with the ability to provide more than 65 treatments a day, RX-O2 has become one of the country’s largest Hyperbaric clinics”, says a spokesperson for Rx-O2 Hyperbaric Clinic.
This discovery is no surprise to the staff at Rx-O2 Hyperbaric Clinic in Glendale. The center’s medical director and board-certified surgeon, Dr. Marvin Borsand, has been utilizing hyperbaric oxygen in his surgery center since 2007. It was prior research on hyperbaric oxygen therapy and cognitive decline that led Dr. Borsand to open the Rx-O2 clinic.
After the loss of his brother to rapid onset dementia four years ago, Dr. Borsand showed a greater focus on regenerative medicine, using stem cell therapy under an IRB-approved study of thousands of patients. Stem cell therapy is advancing however Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy or HBOT has also been shown to mobilize stem cells, growth factors and reduce inflammation. The use of oxygen under pressure has advanced wound healing ability and is an FDA-approved treatment for inflammation and infectious diseases.
“Clinic supervisor and retired Scottsdale Police officer Shawn Smetzer has been involved in Hyperbaric Medicine for almost 20 years. She has done thousands of hyperbaric “dives” and has first-hand experience seeing neurological changes in hyperbaric patients. Although hyperbaric oxygen therapy is not approved for the use of cognitive decline”, says a spokesperson for RX-O2 Hyperbaric Clinic.
Rx-O2 Hyperbaric Clinic is currently Arizona’s largest hyperbaric treatment center. The center has built-in single-place chambers designed for individual treatment and two multiplace chambers that can each treat six patients at once. However, due to CDC guidance, the multiplace chambers are only being used to treat families.
RX-O2 Hyperbaric Clinic is a US-based health center with a culmination of over 50 years of hyperbaric experience. The team comprises highly qualified individuals, from a surgeon who used HBOT to help heal wounds to a Certified Hyperbaric Technologist with over 20 years of experience in Hyperbaric medicine.
