The Advanced Hyperbaric Healthcare Center in Bacolod formally opens today with simple ceremonies. By far, this is the only hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) center in Western Visayas. Located in Brgy. Villamonte, it is the newest healthcare facility dedicated to oxygen treatment and therapy.
Getting Oxygen Therapy from the Advanced Hyperbaric Healthcare Center
Oxygen is the main component of the air that we breathe. However, the oxygen in the environment is not really pure. But especially here in the city pollutants are now a bad mix that we breathe in. Our air is already laced with so much pollution that it brings sickness more than health. Even the occurrence of allergies and other respiratory ailments (pre-Covid) have increased.
On the other hand, breathing in 100% oxygen under atmospheric pressure like in a hyperbaric chamber brings so many health benefits. In an HBOT (hyperbaric oxygen therapy) chamber, the air pressure is increased two to three times higher than normal air pressure. Under these conditions, the lungs can gather much more oxygen than would be possible breathing pure oxygen at normal air pressure. When the blood carries this extra oxygen throughout your body, this helps fight bacteria and stimulate the release of substances called growth factors and stem cells, which promote healing. In order to have it, we have to go to places like the Advanced Hyperbaric Healthcare Center in order to avail of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT).
Health Benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Pure oxygen, inhaled under atmospheric pressure, will give you the following benefits:
- -Increased oxygen delivery to injured tissues.
- -Best for cancer care and post chemotherapy care.
- -Greater blood vessel formation.
- -Improved healing of wounds.
- -Synergistic work with antibiotics.
- -Preservation of damaged tissues and stimulation of new bone formation
- -Stimulate growth factors.
- -Reduces swelling (edema).
- -Relieves chronic pain.
- -Addresses hypoxia.
- -Improves memory and cognitive function.
- -Decreased risk of infection.
HBOT has been the long-kept secret of many popular athletes for strengthening and endurance. They go through therapy as conditioning before a game event and muscle recovery after an event.

For geriatric care, oxygen therapy has been proven to reverse aging. Moreover, it can correct or mitigate some pre-existing health conditions.
Meanwhile, babies and young children born with genetic anomalies have also reportedly benefited from regular hyperbaric treatment.
Requirements for Treatment
The Advanced Hyperbaric Healthcare Center is manned by a trained and experienced medical team. They have an in-house doctor who provides tele-consult prior to treatment.
However, they do require a recent chest X-Ray and ECG result in order to determine a patient’s medical condition.
Safety and Purified Air
At Advanced Hyperbaric Healthcare Center, the safety of their staff, as well as patients, is of utmost importance. That is why the air-conditioned healthcare center has installed a state-of-the-art air purification system.
This cleanses the atmospheric air inside the building. It gets rid of bacteria, viruses, molds, and other pathogens throughout the day.
Owned and managed by the Negros Advance Hyperbaric Life-Support, Inc.4, the center already has two other branches in Manila.
As per safety protocols in relation to Covid-19, the center limits its capacity. Please secure a slot before going to the center.
