Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy provides patients with 100 percent oxygen at increased atmospheric pressures, which helps the body fight infection and heal more efficiently.
Who can benefit from Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?
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.
How does Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy work?
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.
