HYPERBARIC OXYGEN THERAPY
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been proven to heal disease and wounds that
have been resistant to treatment. Many wounds fail to heal because the
supply of oxygen received by the damaged tissue is too low for the body
to heal itself. Hyperbaric therapy causes oxygen to increase in the blood.
It nourishes tissue with poor circulation, improves the ability of white
blood cells to kill bacteria, stimulates the growth of new blood vessels
and boosts the body’s own natural healing process.
Common reasons for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is commonly used to treat:
- Diabetic ulcers/wounds
- Compromised skin grafts/flaps
- Ulcers from lack of blood flow
- Chronic refractory osteomyelitis (bone infection)
- Radiation cystitis and proctitis
- Other late effects of radiation
- Crush injuries
- Certain types of sudden hearing loss
- Sudden vision loss due to retinal artery occlusion
What is a Hyperbaric session like?
Each treatment session in the hyperbaric chamber lasts approximately two
hours. Our multi-person chamber accommodates up to eight patients sitting
comfortably. The chamber space is similar to what you would experience
in a first-class cabin of an airplane; with room to stand, walk around,
and includes a bathroom for convenience. We can accommodate wheelchairs
and stretchers. Each session is attended by a certified HBOT Technician.
Patients wear their own clothes during treatment and may enjoy watching
TV, napping, or reading. If you would like to know more about hyperbaric
oxygen therapy for you or a loved one, please call the Limb Preservation-Wound-Hyperbaric
Center at 734-762-9935.
