Hi, my name is Hayden,
I am a hyperbaric and commercial diving supervisor with over 25 years of experience in hyperbaric and diving operations. I have personally witnessed the benefit of hyperbaric oxygen therapy having treated many folks over the years. I have also benefitted myself following injury and illness. Chronic in some cases. This includes Covid, Long Covid and fatigue. You can read more about me here: https://cumbria-hyperbaric.org/about-us/
Prior to COVID and the effects of the pandemic, we began fundraising to bring a chamber to Cumbria. Unfortunately, COVID dealt everyone a massive blow, including my family and me. We lost my wife and mum in October last year. I spent three months in hospital and still suffer the long-term effects of Covid and long covid.
I have managed this partly with hyperbaric oxygen therapy, as have many others.
Initially, our goal was a big one; however, since beginning to offer my services as a technical consultant and subject matter specialist, I have made contacts who can help us achieve our goals for a lot less than initially thought
This renewed campaign is our way forward. The goals remain the same, and the determination is higher than ever.
Mission Statement: To provide a complementary therapy facility in Cumbria at charitable rates for the health and welfare benefit of the public. Spearheaded by a comprehensive Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy facility to operate at charitable rates for therapy not currently funded by the N.H.S. and ordinarily very costly in the private sector. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is the administration of pure oxygen breathed through a mask or hood at higher than atmospheric pressure. This is facilitated by and delivered in a pressure chamber, also known as a barochamber diving chamber or hyperbaric chamber. This enables far higher concentrations of oxygen in the bloodstream and, subsequently, the tissues it feeds. HBOT and increased oxygenation up-regulates the natural repair and rebuild processes in the body simply by altering the environment. This leads to accelerated healing and healing where no previous recovery has been observed from a wide range of ailments. It is non-invasive and virtually risk-free. Any condition that can benefit from improved cellular respiration and greater oxygen saturation in tissues could benefit from HBOT or, as it is also termed, HBO2. Studies establish that HBOT can and does help most conditions relying on oxygenation for recovery. These include but are not necessarily limited to the following: Long Covid, Chronic fatigue syndrome, Accelerated healing (Including sports injury, wound healing and problematic wounds), Brain Injury (Including Acquired brain injury, traumatic brain injury, mild traumatic brain injury and concussion/sub concussion, and birth injury) Circulatory and vascular complications (Including Compartment syndrome, burns and thermal injury and arterial insufficiencies including severe anaemia) Inflammatory conditions (Including Arthritis, Multiple sclerosis, trauma, post-surgical, depression) Toxicity (Including substance abuse, accidental poisoning, carbon monoxide poisoning) PTSD and Pain Syndromes Radiation injury Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Pre-conditioner for rapid recovery from surgery At Cumbria Hyperbaric We have a clear vision and a clear trajectory to achieve it and get to where we want to be. Our realistic targets will allow those who cannot currently afford private treatment to receive and benefit from this modality. Our ultimate goal is to remain entirely funded by the community and charge nothing for our service. The current target is to get us going after years pf research and effort.
