Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is used to treat a variety of medical and surgical conditions. Patients who receive HBOT breathe 100 percent pure oxygen in a pressurized chamber. Our facility features four clear-acrylic, single patient chambers to deliver hyperbaric oxygen treatments.
HBOT is recognized as an important addition to a proper wound care regimen in patients with advanced diabetic lower-extremity ulcers and other conditions. It can be an effective complement to an existing wound treatment regimen and serves as an effective form of therapy for patients who have been adversely affected by radiation therapy.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) promotes healing by increasing the level of oxygen in the tissue and improving the healing efficiency of the white blood cells. Therapy is administered in a hyperbaric chamber that delivers 100 percent oxygen with increased atmospheric pressure, stimulating the entire body’s natural healing responses. Patients undergoing therapy have complete privacy in our comfortable, individual chambers equipped with televisions and DVD players for patient entertainment.
HBOT is beneficial for diabetic patients with non-healing ulcers, as well as those with arterial ulcers and other types of wounds that fail to respond to conservative therapy.
Indications for HBOT:
- Diabetic ulcers of the lower extremeties
- Soft tissue radionecrosis and osteoradionecrosis
- Chronic refractory osteomyelitis (bone infection)
- Compromised skin grafts and flaps
- Acute traumatic peripheral ischemia
- Acute peripheral arterial insufficiency
- Central retinal artery occlusion (CRAO)
- Idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss (ISSHL)
