Factors Influencing the Cost of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

The cost of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) can vary significantly based on several specific factors. Understanding these can help patients and caregivers plan for the financial aspect of HBOT treatments.

Type of Therapy

The type of hyperbaric oxygen therapy influences the cost. Treatments can be administered in a hospital-based setting, independent clinics or at home. The former is generally more expensive due to the higher overhead costs associated with hospital services. Moreover, Hospitals tend to use hard shell and multiplace chambers, which cost more. In contrast, buying a chamber for your home while expensive at first may save you money in the long run.

The therapy's nature, whether it's for acute conditions like carbon monoxide poisoning or chronic issues such as Lyme disease, wound healing, or anti-aging also affects the price.

Frequency of Sessions

The frequency of sessions needed for effective treatment adds up. Some conditions may require daily sessions, while others need less frequent visits. The total number of sessions varies depending on the specific medical indication, potentially leading to a wide range of total treatment costs.

The brand and quality of the hyperbaric chamber can also have a significant impact on the cost. Some brands are known for their high quality and reliability, and may come with a higher price tag. However, it's important to remember that a higher price doesn't always guarantee better quality. 

We sell Summit to Sea and Newtowne Hyperbarics hyperbaric chambers.

This third company sells their chambers for up to 3x our prices and in our opinion are inferior in quality. (Send us a message if you do not know which brand we are talking about!)

Whichever brand you choose, it's important to do your research and choose a reputable brand that has a proven track record of safety and effectiveness.


The size and features of the hyperbaric chamber will also affect the cost.

Larger chambers will generally cost more than smaller ones, and chambers with more advanced features, such as built-in entertainment systems or advanced monitoring equipment, will also be more expensive. However, it's important to remember that not all features are necessary or even beneficial for every person. It's important to choose a chamber that meets your specific needs without paying for unnecessary features.
