India Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy chamber for Equines.

India. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Chamber for Equines:


Equine athletes treated with hyperbaric oxygen therapy are better able to consistently compete at their full potential. Our chambers have  successfully treated over two hundred horses with varying debilitating
injuries. Like any medical procedure results vary, however the majority of horses showed vast 
improvements and accelerated healing over conventional treatment alone.

HBOT has made possible the complete rehabilitation of horses with injuries

deemed to be career ending.

HBOT’s proven ability to accelerate healing of minor wounds has

consistently returned horses back to the track, saving an otherwise failed
season. Re injury rates are consistently lower than without treatment.

HBOT sessions used for general preventative athletic therapy and to treat minor

chronic disease and infection allow some competition horses to race with
greater frequency. Horses who could previously compete only 
every 2-4 weekshave been able to step to the gate 
weekly and compete at their full potential.

The stable with access to a hyperbaric oxygen therapy chamber has an

indispensable tool to sharpen their winning edge.

Racing Taken to a New Level:  

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for horses affording us the opportunity to prove the benefits

and value to Thoroughbred and Standardbred owners and trainers. The treatments

will be used on current in-training thoroughbred and standardbred horses to
enhance post race recovery time. By speeding the healing of injury due
to the wear and tear of racing (i.e. lung and microcirculation damage), the
well being of the horses with allow them to race 
more frequently, at higher levels.

Commonly Treated Conditions:

HBOT is one of the most powerful tools available as an adjunctive form of

therapy, and in some cases it works well as the primary therapy in horses.

Colic and laminitis are the number one and two killers, respectively, of
horses, and oxygen therapy (in conjunction with other therapies) 
can be very useful in treating both.

• Colic: 

HBOT helps restore blood flow to tissues after colic

surgery. It also reduces obstructive swelling in the intestinal tissue and

improves oxygenation of the resection (after abdominal surgery to correct colon
torsion, small intestine strangulation, etc.) It’s been found that many colic cases
respond much better to surgery when treated with HBOT before and after surgery.

• Laminitis & Navicular Syndrome: 

HBOT can arrest laminitis in the early stages. If you can treat the horse before the structures in the foot

collapse (before there is crushing of the blood vessels), it is very effective.

• Infections: 

HBOT increases blood flow to the infection site,

which increases the amount of antibiotic delivery. The extra oxygen also

increases the effectiveness of the antibiotic, magnifying the way it works
against bacteria. High-dose oxygen tends to potentiate the effect of some
antibiotics, such as sulfamethoxazole (SMZ). You are also getting 15 times the
amount of oxygen to a tissue that was lacking oxygen due to infection 
of poor circulation. Oxygen also stimulates faster cell turnover 
and thus faster healing.

Certain antibiotics such as gentocin and amikacin don’t work well in low-oxygen
environments. Oxygen therapy enhances their function and gives a whole
combination of benefits. HBOT is an adjunctive therapy; you still use
antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs and other treatments. 
It’s a component process in which everything is 
working together.

* Oxygen acts to kill bacteria. 

Most bacteria causing serious infection are anaerobic—working best in an environment 
without oxygen. At pressure, with oxygen at a higher level, it is also detrimental to aerobic 
bacteria. Extra oxygen also helps white blood cells function better to kill the organisms.

• Abscesses:

 Internal abscesses (such as in the lungs or the abdomen)
are sometimes not diagnosed early. By the time they are diagnosed, there is a
thick-walled capsule of connective tissue around them that keeps 
antibiotics from reaching the site. This results in prolonged 
antibiotic treatment (often with no resolution of the abscess) at 
high cost to the owner, and potentially fatal consequences 
for the horse. HBOT helps the antibiotic get to the site 
and enhances its ability to fight the infection.

• Septicemia and Joint Ill in Foals: 

Major clinics have evaluated HBOT for treating foals with septic joints. In 2002, all the foals which came

into the clinic with septic joints went through a standard protocol using systemic antibiotics, 
lavage to flush the joints with antibiotics, etc. After 30 to 90 days of treatments, they 
took the foals which were hopeless (which would ordinarily be euthanized) 
and moved them to a test group. They continued to use their 
standard treatments, but combined them with HBOT. 
They had a 60% recovery rate in foals which 
were going to be put down.

• Soft Tissue Injuries: 

Many injuries result in inflammation and swelling. Studies have shown that soft tissue injuries 
treated with HBOT recover in half the time. New blood vessels form more quickly, 
improving blood supply to injured areas, and there is swift reduction in edema 
(swelling). Since oxygen is normally carried by red blood cells, any 
tissues with a compromised blood supply suffer from 
poor healing. But with HBOT, oxygen is forced 
into all body fluids and delivered to areas 
with restricted circulation.

* Injured tendons and ligaments respond well to treatment; 

HBOT can be useful in dealing with bowed tendons, surgical repair of tendon or ligament

injuries, etc. Surgical traumas (incisions) also heal faster with HBOT, as do

large surface wounds and pressure sores. It decreases tissue 

swelling and helpssalvage damaged tissues in traumatic 
injury. In chronic wounds, it assists growth of new 
skin and stimulates collagen production.

• Reproductive Problems: 

A prominent DVM wrote an article three years ago and described how he’d treated some older 
stallions for laminitis and noticed an increase in fertility. After reading that, Winstar (the first

Thoroughbred farm in Kentucky to have an HBOT chamber) treated their stallion

“Kris S.” in the chamber, and there was a very dramatic change. The stallion’s

covers in the breeding shed had declined, but after HBOT treatments 
his libido increased (along with his sperm count), and the 
morphology (cell structure) of his 
semen was much improved.

* HBOT has also worked well for mares they hadn’t been able to get in foal. 

Four out of five mares were treated one year, that had been bred on multiple covers.

They were put in the HBOT chamber and got into foal the next time they cycled.

And the integrity of the uterine lining was probably enhanced.

A rehab clinic in the US has also treated mares that were unable to concieve.

One mare went to the breeding shed 16 times in two years without 
becoming pregnant. After three treatments in the HBOT chamber,
 she was bred, and had a live, healthy foal.

• Dummy Foals and Other Neurological Problems: 

Used on dummy foals, it reduces edema. The oxygen in a pressure chamber has the ability to penetrate

the cerebrospinal fluid. Head and spinal trauma often create neurological damage, thought to result 
from swelling of these tissues within a confined space, loss of blood and oxygen supply, 
and the sequential effects of these factors on nervous tissue. HBOT reduces the 
swelling and increases the blood supply.
