Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Therapy to Promote Healing
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is used with certain conditions to stimulate the wound healing process. During treatment, a patient lies in a special pressurized chamber of pure oxygen and breathes normally. This oxygen rich environment increases the amount of oxygen in the blood which promotes wound healing. Your physician can determine if this therapy is right for you.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is commonly used in the treatment of:
- Diabetic foot and leg ulcers
- Chronic Refractory Osteomyelitis (bone infection)
- Compromised skin grafts
- Late effects of radiation
- Crush injury
