Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) describes where a patient spends time in a room (or chamber) with an oxygen concentration of 100%. In the air we breathe, the oxygen concentration is 21%. When someone breathes in 100% oxygen, there is an increase in the amount of oxygen in the blood compared with breathing the normal oxygen concentration in the air. This delivers more oxygen around the body, especially to those areas where oxygen concentrations have been low.
