A division of Hyperbarics International, Inc.
Therapeutic Oxygen Health Salon, LLC is the newest division of Hyperbarics International, Inc. The goal of Therapeutic Oxygen Health Salon, LLC is to enhance the lives of clients through the therapeutic benefits of oxygen. Oxygen has many applications outside of the hyperbaric medical environment. Breathing surface oxygen without the use of recompression chambers is an excellent way to enhance cellular activity and DNA response.
As we get older (approximately 40), we begin to outlive the design specifications of the cells, tissues, and organs of our immune system. This change could happen earlier or later in life, depending on the activity level of our lifestyle. Age itself becomes a significant risk factor in inhibiting the repair mechanism of DNA, cells, and tissues. When a decrease occurs in the rate of DNA replication, the cells and tissues experience being inhibited or compromised of their normal function of being active and dividing. Oxygen will provide supplementary oxygen to the DNA to help restore invaluable resources to help prevent the aging of the cells and prolong cellular life longevity.

Hyperbarics International is asking for your support on Go Fund Me.
Hyperbarics International is well known for instructing diving and clinical medical personnel on the benefits and uses of hyperbaric oxygen. However, many people may not know that Dick has also continued to treat patients and perform research in the field of hyperbaric medicine.
Over the last 45 years Dick has treated over 1,200 patients – including veterans and people have no income and/or no health insurance – often at little to no cost to the patient. Many of these patients require multiple treatments. Being a free-standing clinic, Dick has had the opportunity to see a wide range of patients’ conditions improve with the application of hyperbaric oxygen and high-pressure surface oxygen. While medical insurance may cover hyperbaric treatment for some of these conditions, many do not have hyperbaric oxygen as an “approved” therapy. Patients with traumatic brain injuries (TBI), certain types of cancer, infections, and many other conditions can benefit from the use of hyperbaric oxygen.
In addition to teaching and treating patients, Dick has continued to study and conduct research in the following focus areas: physiology of existing HBO treatments and tables; isobaric surface oxygen; traumatic brain injury; dysfunctional brains; leukemia, lymphoma, and other forms of cancer. Additional research regarding the misuse of medical antibiotics; treatment of other animal toxins; and medical health concerns of animals aboard aircraft and in restaurants, etc. is still needed. Published papers are available for most of these subjects.
100% of the donations made to Dick’s Go Fund Me campaign will go towards providing hyperbaric treatments and education to those who are in need – at no cost to the recipient!
The concept of isobaric oxygen is for therapy as well as improving cellular longevity for those with existing minor medical problems. As we get older (approximately 40), we begin to outlive the design specifications of the cells, tissues, and organs in our immune system. This change could happen earlier or later in life, depending on the activity level of our lifestyle. Age itself becomes a significant risk factor in inhibiting the repair mechanism of DNA, cells, and tissues. When a decrease occurs in the rate of DNA replication, the cells and tissues experience a delay in their normal function of being active and dividing. Surface oxygen can provide supplementary oxygen to the DNA and cells to help restore cellular/tissue resources, prevent the aging and death of cells, and prolong a person’s overall longevity. The purpose of the “Surface Oxygen Cellular Physiology” program is to help prevent the onset of certain medical conditions and to treat chronic persistent ambulatory medical conditions. Since oxygen itself is a natural antibiotic, it will prevent the development of harmful bacteria, diseases, infections, and microorganisms; reduce the symptoms of allergies and arthritis; and prevent the occurrence of other known or unknown medical conditions. In addition, oxygen does all of this safely. Oxygen does not interfere with the replication of DNA/cells like most prescription antibiotics, and there is no risk of transdermal chemical reactions.

Hyperbarics International has been teaching diving and clinical hyperbaric medicine for over 40 years. In that time, the understanding of physiology and pathophysiology has changed dramatically, thereby changing the approach to treating diving injuries and decompression illness.
For many years diving related injuries were treated at pressures equivalent to deeper depths. In 1965 Captain Charles Waite found that the period of the most bubble dissipation occurred between 60-90 feet. Thus, the hydrostatic pressure component of treating bubbles at 165 feet became irrelevant, and isobaric (constant pressure) counter diffusion became the leading method used in hyperbaric treatments. In addition to 60 feet being an optimal depth for dissipation of bubbles, it was also found that oxygen becomes highly toxic to the central nervous system at depths greater than 60 feet. As there is no gain in efficacy at deeper treatment depths, most hospital based chambers treating recreational divers will generally never exceed 60 feet. While there are more hyperbaric treatment facilities in operation today, it can still take an average of 4-6 hours to get a recreational scuba diver to one of these facilities.
Getting a diver suffering from any type of decompression illness (DCI) to a hyperbaric treatment facility in a timely manner is very important. Within just 10-15 minutes, gas bubbles can activate the clotting process in a person’s blood. This clotting can preclude venous and/or arterial blood flow in the region of perfusion, leading to more serious injury. Further injury can result from the body’s release of basal-active substances which lead to inflammation, swelling, reduction of blood flow, and white cell migration which can lead to further tissue injury. Fortunately, many of the initial effects of DCI are reversible with rapid access to proper treatment.
You can learn more about isobaric counter diffusion, and other issues pertaining to the treatment of treating diving casualties, through our Diver Medical Training Course and other courses.
What is Nitrox?
The term Nitrox refers to air that is enriched with oxygen. The first breath that we took when we came into this world was a form of Nitrox called normoxic Nitrox. Normoxic refers to air that contains the same amount of oxygen as the ambient air around us (roughly 21%).
For years, the Navy and commercial divers have been using different combinations of oxygen and nitrogen during their diving operations. In 1970 Dr. Morgan Wells brought Nitrox into use for scientific diving by making it available through an open circuit demand scuba system. Using the Enriched Air Diving (EAD) concept, he devised the NOAA Nitrox mix which utilizes 32% oxygen. Air that contains more oxygen than ambient air is considered hyperoxic. Upon retiring from NOAA in 1985, Dick Rutkowski began teaching NOAA Nitrox diving to the recreational diving community.
At this time Mr. Rutkowski and several other members of the diving community- Tom Mount, Bill Deans, and Brent Gillum- formed the International Association of Nitrox Divers (IAND), now the International Association of Nitrox and Technical Divers (IANTD). These pioneers sought to promote the physiological advantage that enriched air nitrox provides to divers. This was especially helpful as the mid 1980’s saw a boom of ships being scuttled to promote artificial reef systems.
In addition to increasing the bottom time and no decompression limits of recreational scuba divers, these hyperoxic gas mixes are also beneficial in hyperbaric medical treatments. Using higher oxygen concentrations under pressure, as is done in hyperbaric treatment, helps the oxygen to better perfuse tissues to promote healing or rid the body of nitrogen gas bubbles. Our Hyperbaric Medical Training programs will teach you how the use of Nitrox can treat diving injuries as well as medical conditions.
