Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric Medicine

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can be used to treat many conditions. When you have an injury or wound, your tissue needs even more oxygen than normal to heal. Our hyperbaric oxygen therapy delivers 100 percent oxygen at above-normal atmospheric pressure. This allows your blood to carry more oxygen, which promotes healing and fights infection.

In wound care, HBOT is used for select chronic, non-healing wounds, osteomyelitis, and failing skin grafts and flaps. The compromised tissue is super-saturated with oxygen and new capillary growth occurs. There are many benefits to augmenting wound treatment with hyperbaric oxygen therapy ( i.e., hyperoxygenation, angiogenesis, fibroblast proliferation, leukocyte oxidative killing, toxin inhibition and antibiotic synergies). You  will be given a treatment plan tailored to your individual medical needs.

Types of wounds we treat include:

  • Acute carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Decompression sickness
  • Gas embolism
  • Gas gangrene
  • Acute traumatic peripheral ischemia
  • Crush injuries and suturing of severed limbs
  • Necrotizing fasciitis
  • Acute peripheral arterial insufficiency
  • Preservation of compromised skin grafts, excludes artificial skin graft
  • Chronic refractory osteomyelitis
  • Osteoradionecrosis
  • Soft tissue radionecrosis
  • Cyanide poisoning
  • Actinomyeosis
  • Diabetic wounds of the lower extremities
