A natural healing process by saturating the body with pressurized oxygen
NOTE: Each question mentioned will have a letter that indicates where you can find more information on the matter. UM – User Manual, WP – Web Page, GS – Biobarica Global System, CT – Commercial Trainings, MT – Medical Trainings, TT – Technical Trainings are available or could be made available only for our clients, post purchase / solid order confirmation.
CT – The hyperbaric chamber provides a strong hyperoxia. In other words, it oxygenates all the cells in one’s body. The hyperbaric chamber does not cure, but accelerates the recovery process and period that the doctor indicates and provides a more efficient treatment.
MT – The theory developed by August Krogh demonstrates that 1.4 ATM is the minimum pressure needed for the O2 to reach all the cells in the body achieving a PO2 (partial pressure of oxygen) of 918 mmHg.
MT – 1.4 ATM provides the best ration between efficiency and safety. On the one hand, the treatment is very efficient with 1.4 ATM, and on the other, it is completely safe, due to the fact that the devices with more than 1.5 ATM require special facilities because of the greater pressure. In addition, the UHMS (Undersea & Hyperbaric Medical Society) indicates that a treatment can be considered to be a hyperbaric treatment form 1.4 ATM.
UM – Yes, the cabin includes an auxiliary entryway to connect the O2 source for the patient to access it through a mask, Usually, the oxygen is provided through an oxygen concentrator which supplies 10 liters per minute.
UM – There are two methods: the first is through a tube or a central duct. The alternative method is with a concentrator which provides 10 liters of oxygen per minute. The latter is less expensive since there is no need for the purchasing of oxygen tanks. During a 1 hour treatment, 600 liters of oxygen are consumed, and the concentrators provide a more efficient investment, since the tanks last longer and are quite expensive.
UM – The Revitalair chamber uses the compressor during treatment, which sends 120 liters of filtered air per minute to the inside of the cabin. The CO (carbon monoxide) and excess O2 are expelled through the valves, avoiding the concentration of gas.
UM – The air enters the cabin is air from the surrounding environment, which is filtered. This contains 21% of O2.
MT – Oxygen in high doses can ben be toxic if it is inhaled during long periods of time. The protocols for hyperbaric therapy, in normal or excessive uses, do not approach the values of toxicity, making it impossible for a patient to encounter any problems.
UM – The safety of our equipment is certified. If the chamber is not tampered with and does not suffer any modifications to increase the pressure, it is impossible for an accident to occur. Our chambers allow the use of cell phones or computers inside the cabin without risking the safety. The equipment complies with international safety standards and has an extensive risk analysis to prevent any misuse.
MT – Our hyperbaric chamber does not cause claustrophobia since it can be opened by the patient from inside. The staff member assisting the claustrophobic patient should explain to them that they have complete control from the inside. The patient should feel comfortable. The windows also provide ease for the patient.
UM – Hyperbaric treatment at the pressure levels of our chambers has two absolute contraindications, where hyperbaric treatment is prohibited: untreated spontaneous pneumothorax or if the patient has bullae. Others, with lesser risk are stated in the user manual and the bibliography.
CT – Yes. This is very common in treatments of children with cerebral palsy or autism. The parent can accompany their child or teenager inside the chamber. The face mask is placed on the patient and the person accompanying them in-hail regular air.
MT – The child usually is accompanied by a parent and can enter the chamber with an iPad or laptop (to watch a movie or read a book). The child wears the mask so they can inhale the O2 and receive an effective therapy
MT – with the pressurization and depressurization, the patient can feel the symptoms you have in an airplane: usually clogged ears. This is communicated to the patient before entering the chamber so they know what to expect, and also instructions on how to unclog them. During the session there should not be any discomfort.
UM – The patient may enter with the clothes of their liking. We suggest they choose comfortable clothes and enter the chamber without shoes, for hygienic reasons.
UM – The CE certification indicates that the chamber needs to be cleaned once a day with Alcohol 70(which is a mixture of 70% alcohol and 30% water). It should be sprayed and spread with a dry cloth. Between sessions, the chamber should be cleaned with a small amount of disinfectant spray.
MT – There are many clinical studies and treatment protocols pertaining to hyperbaric medicine. The treatment is also mentioned by the FDA and many government agencies for many diseases. BioBarica provides overall statistics of the entire network of medical centers creating our own protocol for all the treated pathologies. We also share scientific studies developed to spread the knowledge among our professionals.
MT – Many doctors question whether the level of pressure is important for the therapy and answer is that what matters is not the pressure but the doses of O2 that are reaching the cells. The dosage does not only imply a greater level of pressure, but the treatment time and the number of sessions by the patient. It is important that the dose be enough to oxygenate all the tissues. If the oxygenation exceeds the recommended doses, the tissues do not absorb the O2, which does not improve the effects of the hyperoxia.
MT – We recommend using a closed mask with reservoir and clogged exhaust valves. This mask delivers 100% of available O2 because the more the patient inhales, the more effective the treatment is. Some children do not like using the mask, case a bow compass can be used but this reduces O2 concentration by 50%.
MT – A patient can partake in a session for more than 1 or 2 hours. This is permitted and is standard, but we recommend the most cost effective ratio, which is1hour sessions. In very acute patients, a 1-hour session is indicated, then they must wait for four hours and then they can be treated with another hour long session, to make the tissues have time to metabolize the O2, which in turn is more effective. If the tissue response is slower than the speed with which the hyperoxia is done, then the tissues will not be able to absorb the oxygen and it will be discarded.
MT – The treatment is performed to generate a high dose of O2. If the session is shorter, the results are less effective. The appropriate time for a session is 60 minutes. 90 minute sessions provide the best results, but the shorter sessions are preferred by the patients since they still produce effective results. For acute cases, 90-minute sessions are recommended.
MT - A patient can partake in hyperbaric sessions 7 days a week. It is important that the doctor evaluates the patients after 20 sessions to see their progress.
UM – Hyperbaric Therapy is indicated by a doctor. The physician determines whether or not the patient needs the presence of a doctor during the procedure (depends on how critical the patient’s condition is), but in most cases the presence of doctor is not necessary. This being said, the treatment must be indicated by a doctor and medical assistant must be present in the center to oversee the general activity.
CT – BioBarica has developed several publications for doctors in most medical specialities. We provide information and specific indications for the hyperbaric treatment. The medical directory of BioBarica provides documents and answers to many questions doctors may have. We also provide support for special cases in which the doctor may not have experience.
CS – One of the most important elements that differentiates BioBarica is its extensive and comprehensive training programs. We share our know-how with our network for our members to operate their centers efficiently and in an economically sustainable manner.
WP – Yes. There are protocols for all diseases and medical specialties. Many of them are very old, so we have developed our own protocols with the information provided by the BioBarica Network.
MT – In BioBarica centers all specialties are treated but the most common ones are orthopedics, neurology, rehabilitation, post-surgical wounds, oncology, child neurology, sports medicine and pain management.
MT – No, these devices were designed specifically for medical treatments. The equipment that treat diving accidents are designed to withstand and provide much more pressure.
MT – There are very few. Diving accidents, acute carbon monoxide poisoning and some anaerobic infections cannot be treated 98% of what the market requests can be treated with our chambers, which are just as effective as high-pressure chambers.
WP – Just as sparkling water, gas bubbles in a closed bottle are undetected until it is opened. Physics explains that gas is diluted in the liquid when it is placed under pressure. The same happens when we breathe O2 in a cabin with augmented pressure: The O2 gas is diluted in the liquidized plasma of the blood.
WP – The hyperbaric chamber was invented over 200 years ago, but a new category of chambers has been introduced to treat many more medical specialties, making the treatment much more accessible and user-friendly.
UM – The chamber consists of a cabin, a compressor and a support table. We also offer an exclusive stretcher for patients with little or no mobility, which is optional at the time of purchase.
UM – The maintenance is performed by the equipment operator with the instructions mentioned in the BioBarica Global System. The online system alerts the operator of all the necessary maintenance for the equipment to operate properly.
WP – BioBarica offers an extended warranty of up to 4 years (optional, at extra cost), in which case any problem that may arise can be solved with the replacement of the chamber with a new one which will be sent immediately.
UM – The chamber includes a one-year warranty, except the closure system of the chamber which has a lifetime warranty. An optional, extended warranty of up to 4 years can be purchased.
UM – The pressure of the treatment can be lowered but not augmented. The chamber operates on 1.4 ATM pressure. Only in some cases a doctor might decide to use a lower pressure level. In these cases, the valves may be opened slightly and the internal pressure is stabilized at a value between 1.1 ATM and 1.4 ATM according to the specific indication.
CT– Hard-shelled chambers uses high pressure levels that require high maintenance costs specialized operators. They also have more safety requirements and the treatment is much more aggressive and stressful for the patient.
TT – In the market there are low-pressure chambers that operate on 1.3 ATM, which are offered at a lower price range. The Revitalair 430 is a certified medical device that operates at 1.4 ATM. Is the minimum pressure necessary for hyperbaric treatment. The cheaper models have a zipper and resemble a sleeping bag.This provides very little mobility for the patient and are very uncomfortable. The biggest difference is the effectiveness of the treatment. Our chambers allow the inhalation of higher doses of O2, making our treatment just as effective as the ones provided in expensive, hard-shelled hyperbaric chambers.
UM – Yes, The device can operate all day. Brief resting periods of only five minutes per hours is sufficient, and it is the same time between patients.
UM – Yes. This technology allows the chamber to be installed in any environment with absolute safety. It is generally installed in medical institutions, in any space that it may fit. We recommend the room has air conditioning, since the pressure inside the chamber can raise the temperature by 2-3 degrees. Air conditioning prevents it from getting too hot.
UM – We recommend there be air conditioning in the centres, especially for hot climates because the compression of the air inside cabin makes the temperature rise by 2 or 3 degrees. It is more comfortable for the patient when there is an outside temperature of 23 degrees.
UM – For the installation and operation of a center, the minimum required space is a room of 4 meters by 2.5 meters.
UM – No The chamber can be uninstalled in 15 minutes and ready to carry where needed.
UM – The chamber is connected to a normal outlet of 110 or 220 volts (as indicated by the model) and it is suitable for a home outlet. No special outlets are necessary.
UM – There is nothing to worry about. The compressor stops working and the patient or operator can depressurize the chamber normally to eject the air. The door can be opened and the patient may exit. If the session is not complete, there is no problem, but the patient might have to start over with that particular session at some other time.
CT – The BioBarica Network is a global network of hyperbaric therapy centers that provides its members with the know-how and necessary support necessary to provide effective hyperbaric treatment a successful business.
CT – The license provides the BioBarica Center operator our know-how, technical, medical and sales support needed to manage a successful center. We guarantee an exclusive territory where the center operates and to be a part of an international network. We also provide worldwide advertising and all the necessary training for the licensee and its staff. Access to our scientific bibliography and the exclusive BioBarica Global System is included which comes with statistics of diseases, maintenance monitoring and other features that will add value and reduce the cost for your business.
CT – The BioBarica System uses a chamber that requires a modest investment, To open a BioBarica center you will need (in addition to the chamber); an oxygen concentrator and operator that does not require special training (we provide all the necessary training). This results in a very low maintenance cost with minimal overhead and a business that ensures high returns for the investor.
The BioBarica Global System (BGS) is the system developed by BioBarica. It includes different sections which serve different purposes:
HIPERMED: Statistical protocols of the diseases that are treated at the centers of the BioBarica network.
Tickets: Support tool for the members within the network.
Maintenance: Online maintenance system which indicates how and when to maintain the chamber.
Training: Medical, technical and commercial trainings for distributors, licensees and their staff members.
Blog: News about hyperbaric medicine and our BioBarica Network, Administration and management of patients and referring physicians.
WP – There are more than 150 BioBarica centers in more than 13 countries. Our network is growing rapidly at accelerated rates. We predict that we will have distributors in 100 countries within the next two years.
CT – BioBarica provides advertising systematically in all areas where a center is located, achieving scale costs and synergy in investment and design.
WP – From the moment the order is placed, it usually takes 1 week for the chamber to be shipped anywhere in the world.
UM – Yes. A BioBarica Centers can be installed in clinics, hospitals, private clinics or practices and specialized medical centers.
CT – The brand BioBarica does not affect the institution’s brand. It is a BioBarica hyperbaric therapy unit within the institution. BioBarica advertising will refer to the institution’s name so that patients are treated in BioBarica within the clinic.
WP – The Revitalair chambers that the BioBarica Centers use have all the international certifications needed in most countries. CE-FDA-COFEPRIS-DIGEPRIS-ANMAT-SFDA-REMB-ISO 13485-BPF-ISO 9000-NFPA-PVHO1
CT – Generally we do not sell equipment without a license because it is very important that our clients have the proper maintenance and training to insure the proper use of the equipment and treatment. But yes, in exceptional cases we do sell without any exclusivity and support commitments.
CT- yes we do. We charge a first time license fee and a recurring monthly fee.
CT- Yes but only if a doctor has indicated treatment and be present during the sessions.
UM – This technology was designed to minimize the requirements of specialized technician. The staff needs little training to operate the device properly and BioBarica provides the training which is included in the purchase of the chamber.
UM – The equipment can be used without an external operator, which means the patient can exit without assistance, minimizing the claustrophobic effects. BioBarica requires an operator be present to provide assistance during treatment.
CT – If we consider that on average patients need 14 sessions, and in a standard medical institution that provides during 10 hours every day, it has 250 hours per month available for the use of the chamber, which implies a maximum of 16 patients per month. If we subtract scheduling problems and holidays, it is normal that no more than 13 or 14 patients per month will use hyperbaric chamber.
