    Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is used for hard-to-heal wounds. HBOT surrounds patients with 100% oxygen in a comfortable, pressurized chamber, enhancing blood flow and oxygen delivery to vital organs. HBOT promotes healing through increasing blood supply, reducing bacteria and providing nutrients to the wounded area.

Benefits of HBOT:

  • Enhanced white blood cell action
  • Improved blood flow to areas with arterial blockage
  • Increased oxygen concentration in all body tissues
  • Increased production of the body's natural antioxidants
  • Dilation of the arteries and blood vessels, and improved blood flow to affected organs
  • Stimulated growth of new blood vessels to locations with reduced circulation

Wounds that may benefit from HBOT include:

  • Bone infections
  • Diabetic wounds
  • Radiation injury to bone or soft tissue
