Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT)
In some cases, hyperbaric oxygen therapy can assist healing by increasing the immune and healing responses in the body. When a patient receives hyperbaric therapy, they enter a hyperbaric chamber that simulates a highly pressurized environment. While in the chamber, patients breathe 100 percent pure oxygen, allowing more oxygen to be forced into the body’s tissue. This offers multiple medical benefits, including speeding the body’s healing process.
Our wound care specialists use HBOT to treat a variety of wounds and conditions including:
- Arterial blood flow insufficiency to limbs
- Diabetic wounds of lower extremity
- Lower jaw/mandible radiation
- Necrotizing soft tissue infections
- Radiation injury
- Skin grafts and flaps
