AJR1 was part of a work session in the assembly Wednesday, focusing on the use of the therapy technique which involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized chamber, room or tube.
The method has been shown to increase the level of oxygen to an individual’s lungs, allowing more blood oxygen in tissues to help fight infections and promote healing, the bill noted.
The language in the bill states treatment helps with, among other disorders, carbon monoxide poisoning, decompression sickness, enhanced healing of some wound problems, skin grafts, heat burns, crush injuries, and other acute health care issues that involve not enough blood flow to a part of the body.
