Medical Carbon Dioxide (CO2) AirJected®, delivered transdermally into the circulatory system through the capillaries, naturally lowers the blood’s pH. This causes hemoglobin to release more oxygen into tissues that require additional oxygen for natural healing. Medical CO2 treatment also causes vasodilatation, resulting in an increase in blood velocity and a decrease in blood pressure within minutes.
The principle upon which this therapy is based—the Bohr Effect—has been known for more than a hundred years. Likewise, CO2 has been used for therapeutic purposes for thousands of years in natural carbonated spring bathing, also known as thermal waters or, more commonly within the scientific community, CO2 Balneotherapy).
Medical CO2 delivered using the AirJector® system aids in all the processes that support physiological balance in the body. These include circulation, oxidation, assimilation (producing energy), and elimination (detoxifying metabolic waste).
PHYSIOLOGICAL EFFECTS OF AIRJECTOR® CO2 THERAPY
- Vasodilation of the circulatory system
- Up to 50% improvement in capillary circulation
- Up to 30% improvement in blood velocity
- Improvement in blood pressure to normal levels
- 8- to 10-point decrease in heart rate during exercise
- Balance of blood pH
- Tissue oxygenation with cardiovascular improvement and wound healing
DRY AND WET CO2 THERAPIES
The scientific literature differentiates between water-based and so-called dry CO2 therapies. The water-based version, as its name suggests, provides therapeutic effects in a hot tub of water enriched with a natural gas such as CO2. AirJector® delivers either wet or dry gas therapy in one modern, handheld, practical solution with variable gas-steam concentrations.
PURIFIED GASEOUS SOLUTIONS AND H2O
In the case of Natural Springs–based wet gas therapies, there can be unwanted chemicals and bacteria in the water. The spring water and natural gases come from deep underground, picking up unwanted elements along the way. Multiple users entering the spring water also makes contamination possible, as do the chemicals used by operators to clean the tubs. AirJector® delivers FDA- and European-approved gaseous substances directly.
HYGIENIC AND INFECTION-FREE SOLUTION
Patients bathing in Natural Springs share the water with people who may have serious illnesses. Additionally, many transdermal gas delivery technologies on the market today use the same equipment for multiple patients. Keeping equipment clean requires multiple cleanings per day with chemicals. In all cases, there is a high risk for infection in medical facilities everywhere. Conversely, AirJector® was designed to be completely antiseptic. Gas is delivered in a controlled, clean, incubation-like environment so the solution is absorbed safely into the skin. One-time use components of the AirJector® treatment also reduce the possibility for infection.
