Oxygen hyperbaric therapy (HBOT) is widely used and generally considered safe. People of all ages can potentially benefit from the beneficial properties of oxygen. However, there are situations in which the use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is not recommended. As with any procedure, there are also contraindications for HBOT.

People with certain chronic diseases or conditions should consult a doctor before undergoing hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) to determine if it is safe for them.
