Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a non-invasive method of administrating 100 percent oxygen in a pressurized environment.

This combination of added pressure and oxygen allows the oxygen to dissolve in the blood and spread into the tissue and fluids of the body. The resulting significant increase of oxygen in the bloodstream allows for: 

  • Preservation of injured tissue
  • Delivery of oxygen to injured tissue
  • Faster healing rates
  • Improved control of certain infections
  • Growth of new blood vessels

Wounds and Oxygen 

When a wound does not receive enough oxygen, healing is delayed and the risk for infection increases. As part of a comprehensive wound treatment plan, hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) can give your wounds oxygen to promote healing.

What is HBOT?

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy allows your wounds to receive 100 percent oxygen in a pressurized environment. When you combine pressure and oxygen, the amount of oxygen in your bloodstream increases. Oxygen lends your wounds a breath  of fresh air. 

Do you have a wound that is not healing quickly? Have you had an amputation, skin graft or muscle flap? Have you had a crush injury, or do you have a bone or skin infection?

If your answer is yes to any of these questions, HBOT may be right  for you. 

HBOT aids in the preservation and delivery of oxygen to your injured tissue, promotes faster healing rates, improves control of certain infections and encourages the growth of new blood vessels.
