The Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Program at Saint Francis can help. We deliver compassionate care, with a focus on improving your quality of life.
Wounds need oxygen to heal. During Hyperbaric Oxygen (HBO) therapy, patients are given 100% oxygen in a pressurized environment. We combine pressure and oxygen to increase the amount of oxygen in the bloodstream. This helps to speed the healing process.
HBO therapy is an outpatient service provided five days a week for several weeks, depending on your diagnosis, the extent of your wound, and our response to therapy. All treatments are physician supervised and last approximately two hours from start to finish. Chambers are equipped with a television, DVD player, and CD player so you can pass the time with ease.
You may find the answers to many of your questions about HBO here.
