Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
To help in your healing, you may be referred for hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
Patients with the following conditions may benefit from hyperbaric oxygen therapy:
- Slow-healing diabetic wounds
- Tissue that has been damaged due to radiation therapy
- Certain infections of the skin or bone
- Problem skin grafts
- Crash or crush injuries
- Slow-healing post-surgical wounds
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a simple, yet extremely effective therapy where patients breathe pure oxygen inside a single-person pressurized chamber. The therapy quickly and safely delivers high concentrations of oxygen to your bloodstream. This helps increase your body’s own natural wound healing abilities.
Our oxygen chambers are comfortable and many patients find sessions incredibly relaxing. During your oxygen therapy session, a full-time health care technician will stay with you while you are in the pressurized chamber. While in the chamber, you will have the opportunity to rest or watch television or video.
