The most common effect is a “fullness” or popping sensation in the ears which lasts only briefly. This sensation is the same as experienced in an airplane during ascent and descent. Those who fly with minimal ear problems can very likely undergo HBOT very easily. We have found that the best way of dealing with this issue is when you are coming up in pressure, slowly release of the valve so it will take an extra 8-10 minute. Since our chamber are controlled from the inside you can take you time. The second thing is to put therapeutic grade peppermint oil on your stomach and eucalyptus oil behind your ears. (note: make sure to use your pinky finger, and don’t wipe your eyes…speaking from experience).
Are there side effects or After Effects of HBOT?
