Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Radiation Injury

Every day, we are all exposed to radiation from natural sources like minerals in the ground and manufactured sources like x-rays.

Large amounts of radiation can cause severe illness by stopping the body from making blood cells and hurting the digestive system.

The heart, blood vessels, brain, and skin can all be hurt by a very high dose of radiation. A tissue reaction is a name for damage caused by large or very large doses of radiation.

It can also make people more likely to get cancer and have children with congenital disabilities. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is an FDA-approved treatment for radiation injury.
