What is the downside of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?


At Live 5D Health, we pride ourselves on being the only Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) center in the south of Ireland. We’re dedicated to providing this transformative treatment to help you achieve better health and healing. As with any treatment, it’s essential to be well-informed about both the benefits and potential downsides of HBOT. While HBOT is a highly effective and safe treatment for many conditions, we want to address some common concerns to help you make an informed decision.

Barotrauma and Oxygen Toxicity: Understanding the Risks

One of the primary concerns with HBOT is the risk of barotrauma, which can occur due to the pressure changes in the chamber. Barotrauma can cause discomfort or injury to your ears, sinuses, or lungs. At Live 5D Health, our experienced staff ensures that the pressure changes are gradual and monitored, significantly reducing the risk of barotrauma.

Oxygen toxicity is another potential risk, especially in the lungs and central nervous system, which can manifest as seizures or lung damage. However, such side effects are rare and usually associated with prolonged exposure to high oxygen levels. Our sessions are carefully timed and regulated to prevent this, ensuring a safe experience for all our clients.

Claustrophobia and Discomfort: We’re Here to Help

We understand that being in a small, enclosed chamber can be challenging, especially for those with claustrophobia. At Live 5D Health, we’ve designed our chambers to be as comfortable and spacious as possible. Our friendly staff is always on hand to support you throughout the process, making your experience as pleasant as possible.

Costs and Availability: Quality Care Close to Home

The cost of HBOT can be a concern, particularly since multiple sessions are often required. At Live 5D Health, we strive to make our services as accessible and affordable as possible. We are not a standard business, but a Private Members Association. We will ask you to join when you visit by signing a simple form (it’s currently free), then each session in our units is donation based, with a suggested donation of between €80 and €120. If you are genuinely suffering from financial hardship, you can donate whatever you can afford. We don’t want anyone to miss out on the benefits of our non-medical hyperbaric oxygen chambers or our Orynoco Quantum Healing Pods. Similar treatments in London, Galway and Dublin can cost €150+.

Addressing Side Effects

While most clients experience HBOT without significant issues, some might encounter temporary side effects such as myopia (short-term vision changes) or ear discomfort. These effects are typically mild and resolve shortly after treatment. Our team is committed to monitoring your health closely and addressing any concerns promptly.

Proven Efficacy and Ongoing Research

HBOT is a well-established treatment for conditions like chronic wounds, carbon monoxide poisoning, and decompression sickness. Ongoing research continues to explore its potential benefits for other conditions. At Live 5D Health, we stay updated with the latest medical research to ensure that our practices are based on solid scientific evidence. Our priority is your safety and the effectiveness of your treatment.
