Dry carbonic bath
Description of the procedure:
In this procedure, the patient is placed in a special “bag”, which is filled with carbon dioxide. Penetrating through the skin, carbon dioxide causes vasodilation and accelerated blood flow due to its direct effect on capillaries and small vessels. Thus, blood viscosity is reduced and stagnation is prevented, which is an effective prevention of blood clots. Due to the absence of hydrostatic pressure on the body, dry carbon dioxide baths are indicated for diseases of the cardiovascular system, when the mechanical effect of water is undesirable.
The main indications:
Thrombophlebitis, bronchial asthma, coronary heart disease, arterial hypertension, chronic bronchitis, obliterating lesions of the vessels of the lower extremities, chronic pneumonia, obesity, diabetes mellitus.
