Hyperbaric Medicine

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy accelerates the healing process of wounds by increasing the amount of oxygen traveling through the bloodstream to injured organs and tissue. In a hyperbaric chamber, patients breathe 100 percent oxygen allowing up to 20 times more oxygen saturation in the blood. Increased oxygen levels promote the growth of new blood vessels, build appropriate levels of collagen and white blood cells to fight infection and facilitate tissue development. Medicare has approved HBO therapy for the following wound conditions:

  • Non healing diabetic foot ulcers
  • Infection in a bone (osteomyelitis) that does not respond to treatment
  • Delayed radiation injuries
  • Necrotizing soft tissue infection
  • Crush injuries
  • Compromised skin grafts or flaps
  • Gas gangrene
