Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is helpful for patients with various conditions, including diabetic ulcers, carbon monoxide poisoning, bone infections (osteomyelitis) and other serious infections, non-healing wounds, crush injuries or injuries that affect circulation.
While resting in a chamber set at greater-than-normal atmospheric pressure, the patient is exposed to pure oxygen. The chamber maintains oxygen delivery and improves blood flow - allowing the patient’s body to carry up to 20 times the normal amount of healing oxygen to the body’s tissues.
