The Federal Center for Brain and Neurotechnology has developed a program for personalized medical rehabilitation of patients after COVID-19 using hyperbaric oxygenation (HBO). An HBO department will open here on May 21.
Hyperbaric oxygenation departments will open at the Federal Center for Brain and Neurotechnology (FCMN) of the FMBA of Russia on May 21, the FCMN reported. At the opening ceremony, methods of an individual medical rehabilitation program will be demonstrated, including HBOT, intravenous laser therapy, kinesitherapy and halotherapy, psychological consultation, and vibration chest massage.
The Federal Center for Medical Sciences has developed and successfully implemented a program for personalized medical rehabilitation of patients after COVID-19, including the use of a combination of HBOT with intravenous laser therapy.
HBOT (a method of influencing the body using oxygen under high pressure in medical pressure chambers) helps relieve hypoxia, ischemia, improves the status of the immune system, and normalizes metabolic processes. This is very important for patients who have suffered an ischemic stroke, have various cardiovascular pathologies and have recovered from COVID-19.
The FCMS has two pressure chambers created in one of the Russian research and production centers. Barotherapy devices are equipped with monitoring systems to monitor the patient’s condition during a treatment session, monitor over time, assess treatment prospects, and predict possible complications. Panoramic glazing and a built-in communication system provide psychological comfort to the patient.
“The use of HBOT after a coronavirus infection helps restore the immune system, activates metabolic processes, reduces fibrosis of the lung tissue and has a positive effect on the microvasculature in diseases of the lung tissue,” noted the head physician of the Federal Center for Medical Sciences. Raisa Tairova.
Depending on the severity of the residual effects of COVID-19, a course of HBOT can be carried out as part of inpatient treatment and on an outpatient basis.
