Hyperbaric oxygenation helps with breast cancer treatment complications in so many ways that it’s invaluable to know that it’s covered by Irish Life Health at OxyGeneration.
“OxyGeneration is at an education stage. The first lesson is that care teams take reasonable care to make disclosure of all reasonable treatment options. The second is that the universal gas laws provide the basic scientific evidence why oxygenation under pressure reverses hypoxic (shortage of oxygen ) injured tissue at cellular level no matter where in the brain or body.
“It’s a win-win situation. Significant money has been saved by health insurers by paying for hyperbaric oxygenation when good disclosure to patients was made by the care team,” Ms Jennifer Flaherty, a senior clinic executive at OxyGeneration on Merchants Road in a statement, said.
The test for good disclosure is, ‘would a woman like to have been told?’
1 ) That reported cases show that all women (100% ) using hyperbaric oxygenation have quality of life improvements.
2 ) That inflammation is reduced, resulting in significantly less risk of complications such as breast pain, headaches, nausea, extreme fatigue, skin, and scalp changes and there is less scarring of the skin.
3 ) That all women have significantly reduced risk of complications of compromised skin flaps and grafts, and reoperation. Doctors, also report reduced hospital costs due to fewer reoperations.
OxyGeneration are delighted to support ‘Race in Pink Day’ on Sunday, October 30, at Galway Races in aid of Breast Cancer Awareness.
