Hyperbaric Oxygen 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 comfortable, individual chambers equipped with televisions and headphones 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. It is also a treatment for conditions such as acute carbon monoxide intoxication, crush injuries, osteoradionecrosis, and diabetic wounds. For a complete list of indications for HBOT treatment, please visit memorialhermann.org/northeast.
The center utilizes an aggressive approach to heal wounds faster and focuses on prevention for the future. One of these therapies is the use of advanced bio-engineered living tissue.
Patients are examined and evaluated for all possible physical conditions, such as diabetes, that could interfere with proper healing. The care team follows evidence-based clinical pathways to determine why wounds are not healing. This determination is then used to develop individual treatment plans utilizing the most effective technologies available to provide maximum healing.
