Exercise With Oxygen Therapy (EWOT)
Known as EWOT (Exercise With Oxygen Therapy), this is a technique that allows you to inhale higher concentrations of oxygen during exercise. It is also known as Exercise With Oxygen Training or Oxygen Enhanced Exercise (O2E2). Regardless of the name, the point is to combine the light physical exercise with the process of oxygenating one’s bloodstream.
While the blood is transporting the oxygen to our capillaries, the oxygen must get decomposed in the body fluids so as to reach the cells. This is accomplished through pressure, which regrettably, shows a tendency to deteriorate with age. Various factors including stress, lack of exercise, smoking, sedentary lifestyle, toxic substances, free radicals or breathing contaminated ambient air can be accounted for this decline in the pressure.
As long as you continue the EWOT sessions on a regular basis, you put an effort to bring back the arterial pressure to the normal levels and ensure your body cells are receiving the oxygen they require. The terms Exercise With Oxygen Therapy (EWOT) and Oxygen Enhanced Exercise (O2E2) are used interchangeably.
Your Body's Response to Low Oxygen During Exercise
Your body utilizes quite a significant amount of oxygen during exercise or physical activities and calls for rapid restoration. As a result, heart rate and breathing rate rise to carry more oxygen to the muscles and adjacent tissues.
The potential of your body to absorb oxygen becomes impeded if you suffer from a respiratory condition such as COPD. Furthermore, if you are affected with coexistent heart issues like congestive heart failure or atrial fibrillation, it takes a consequential toll on your heart to pump harder to obtain adequate oxygen during exercise.
While exercise is beneficial to overall health, there is a conundrum: How can you attain satisfactory levels of exercise without aggravating existing heart or pulmonary conditions?
The solution is strikingly simple - Exercise With Oxygen Therapy (EWOT) aka Oxygen Enhanced Exercise (O2E2).
Key Benefits of EWOT
The potential benefits of EWOT are literally limitless, but they are based on the three primary aspects: The capability of EWOT to promote Oxygen Circulation, reinstate the Blood Flow and boost ATP synthesis. These major benefits exert influence on the overall health.
Improves Oxygen Circulation
EWOT transports oxygen into the blood vessels. This indicates the increase in the flow of Oxygen into arteries, veins and even to the capillaries that link arteries to veins. Improvement in the oxygen circulation results in the smooth processing of numerous day-to-day biochemical activities undergone by the cells as they are receiving enough oxygen.
Reinstates Blood Flow
As oxygen circulation in the body improves, the oxygenated blood has the capability to transport O2 to the tissues, blood vessels and organs for the proper functioning of physiological processes. Restoring the oxygenated blood circulation plays an important role in remedying vasoconstriction, the narrowing of the blood vessels.
Boosts ATP Synthesis
EWOT permits every cell to receive an adequate O2 level. This enhances the production of Adenosine Tri-Phosphate (ATP), which serves as an energy-carrying molecule. Blood cells separate when ATP levels rise, allowing them to absorb more oxygen because they are no longer stuck together. Low ATP can lead to delayed healing process.
Other EWOT Benefits
Improves immune system function
Promotes faster healing from sickness or injury
Enhances cardiovascular health
Aids in lung function improvement
Reduces the inflammatory response
Permits the rapid recovery post workout
Enhances athletic performance
Aids in effective weight management
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Vs. Optimal EWOT
Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS) define HBOT as: “An intervention in which an individual breathes near 100% oxygen intermittently while inside a hyperbaric chamber that is pressurized to greater than sea level pressure.” Table below shows the comparison of HBOT and EWOT.
|Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)||Enhanced with Oxygen Training (EWOT)|
|Involves breathing 100% pure oxygen in three times higher air pressure than normal.||Involves breathing high levels of oxygen (usually 95%) while exercising|
|Passive in nature; Increased atmospheric pressure in the chamber forces the oxygen into the tissues||EWOT super-saturates the plasma which forces more oxygen into the tissues. The additional oxygen is utilized by the body-|
|Helps in tissue repair and reconditioning of body functions||Increase energy levels, improves tissue and organ function|
|Effective for treating some maladies||Not suitable for treating specific diseases|
|Requires Prescription||Does not require Prescription|
|Needs longer duration; HBOT is a delayed process||Needs shorter duration; EWOT shows desired results immediately|
|Cannot be used by patients with hardware (pacemakers)||Can be used by patients with hardware (pacemakers)|
Hyperbaric Mild Therapy costs around $7,500 - $29,000
HBOT hard chambers costs around $75,000 - $250,000
|Affordable in nature|
Turbo Oxygen System costs just $1,299-2,649
|Difficult to access a chamber||Ease of accessibility|
|Not conducive to exercise||Ideal for exercise|
|Session Cost: $100-150||Session Cost: $0- Home|
|Session Duration: 1-2 Hours||Session Duration: 15 minutes|
|Help of a Technician is required||Easy to use; self administration|
|Needs to travel to doctor||Can be done at home|

Oxygen Consumption During Exercise
Walk into any gym. See all the people breathing hard, straining their muscles, and sweating? Ok, so they're burning calories and building muscle, but many are not aware they may be aging themselves at a greater rate and increasing the opportunity for many illnesses.
Oxygen consumption is directly related to the exercise intensity. Consistent strenuous exercise requires a great deal of oxygen. Your body burns the existing oxygen in your red blood cells, regardless of how much you are breathing in. You are using more oxygen than you are taking in.
Any activity, whether it is sports, exercise or routine work, increases the human body’s need for oxygen. Oxygen gives the body the ability to rebuild itself, detoxifies the blood, and strengthens the immune system.
Benefits of Supplemental Oxygen
Supplemental oxygen and its effects have been well documented by medical experts and scientists. Here are just some of them:
VO2max (Maximum Oxygen Consumption)
SPO2 (Blood Oxygen Saturation)
SMO2 (Muscle Oxygen Saturation)
Lowered/eliminated BL (Blood Lactic Acid)
Reduces HR (Heart Rate)
Recovery from physical activity increases by 5-10 fold
Physical activity participation at a higher level
Excellent relief from altitude sickness and symptoms
Relief from stress (Stress causes shallow breathing which in effect limits oxygen consumption)
An increased feeling of well-being
More efficient metabolism
