Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy 


Experience faster wound recovery and improvement of certain medical conditions with hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO treatment) from Dignity Health. 

HBO Treatment

By breathing 100% pure oxygen while under increased atmospheric pressure, patients receiving HBO therapy absorb oxygen at a quicker rate, greatly enhancing the body's ability to heal itself.

A Dignity Health therapist performs and closely monitors HBO treatment while the patient rests inside a transparent hyperbaric oxygen therapy chamber. While inside the HBO chamber, the patient receives increased oxygen levels at roughly two times the normal air pressure. Increased oxygen levels with HBO treatment near the wound site help reduce swelling, fight infection and improve circulation.

Conditions Treated

HBO therapy patients receive treatment in the safety and comfort of a hospital setting with the expertise of our highly trained nurses, physicians and therapists. Patients require a doctor referral for HBO treatment and will remain under their doctor's primary care throughout the process.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy has been proven safe and effective for the treatment of conditions such as:

  • Abscesses burns compromised skin grafts and flaps
  • Acute sensorineural hearing loss
  • Air or gas embolism
  • Anemia (severe)
  • Arterial insufficiencies carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Compromised skin grafts and flaps
  • Crush injury
