How Can Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Work?

One reason wounds could be slow to heal is due to a lack of oxygen to the site of the wound. The atmosphere we breathe under ordinary conditions comprises about 21% oxygen. 

Hyperbaric oxygen treatment permits us to breathe 100 percent oxygen while in a clean pressurized chamber. The high-pressure environment of this room helps carry elevated quantities of oxygen through the body to accelerate wound healing.

During treatment, the air pressure in the chamber is slowly improved. The first few minutes of therapy may feel like being in an airplane and experiencing a slight pressure in your ears. 

A technician stays chamber side during the entire treatment and can be available to answer questions and ensure patient comfort. 

HBOT is covered by most insurance companies for a selection of conditions, including:

-Diabetic wounds of the lower extremities

-Delayed soft tissue injuries due to radiation

-Crush injuries and suturing of severed limbs

-Acute traumatic peripheral ischemia
