“Hyperbaric Oxygen, Neutrophil-oxidative Burst, and Cytokines”
In this small pilot study, participants (patients and healthy volunteers) will have blood drawn before and after the study intervention (hyperbaric chamber session or normal pressure oxygen breathing. This blood will be analyzed for neutrophil oxidative burst and cytokine analysis.
Drug - Hyperbaric Oxygen
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
Breathing air inside a hyperbaric chamber, then breathing oxygen inside a hyperbaric chamber
