What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is the administration of 100 % oxygen in a pressurized environment. Diffusing oxygen throughout the body promotes angiogenesis, allowing a chronic wound to get the nutrient and oxygen rich blood it needs to heal. The combination of added pressure and oxygen significantly increases the amount oxygen in the bloodstream and offers the following benefits:
- Preservation of injured tissue
- Delivery of oxygen to the injured tissue
- Faster healing rates
- Improved control of certain infections
- Growth of new blood vessels
Specialized wound care – including HBOT – is often necessary for optimal treatment of chronic wounds. HBOT is an effective adjunctive therapy used in conjunction with advanced wound care. Along with proper attention to nutrition and other underlying medical problems, we achieve greater healing results.
HBOT is a proven treatment for:
- Chronic refractory osteomyelitis
- Lower extremity diabetic ulcers
- Radiation cystitis
- Radiation necrosis
- Failed skin grafts
