The Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy or HBOT as a natural medicine is fast gaining popularity throughout the world particularly in advance and emerging countries.
Today, HBOT or Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy remains a relatively unknown medical treatment in the Philippines with less than 5% awareness among adult population. Indeed, awareness with HBOT are relatively and unfortunately limited and mostly confined with individuals and groups in the Diving Industry.
The Philippines is still wanting both for professional individuals and facilities with regards to HBOT.
Just to illustrate, Philippines has less than 10 Hyperbaric Chambers compared with about 300 Hyperbaric Chambers in Taiwan.
Professionally, there are no more than five (5) Hyperbaric Doctors in the Philippines that are accredited by the UHMS or Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society in the United States.
It is worthy to mention that we have a highly professional individual by the name of Jose. R. Bernardo, MD who is not only a biologist and a medical doctor, but to say the least, Jose R. Bernardo, M. D. is indeed a well established, highly respected and a top of mind acknowledged authority and medical practitioner in the field of Hyperbaric Medicines particularly in the Philippines.
