Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
A specialized team of highly skilled physicians, nurses and technicians staff the Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center's Hyperbaric Medicine Unit. Prior to your initial HBO therapy, a physician and nurse will meet with you to discuss your personalized treatment plan and address any questions or concerns you may have.
The hyperbaric chamber at Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center is a steel cylinder that is six feet in diameter and 34 feet long. The chamber has more than one compartment, or room, known as a multiplace chamber, which allows prompt physician access should the need arise. The main room is quite large and can accommodate up to 12 patients as well as a technician or nurse. Patients are able to either sit or recline with only minimal limitations of movement.
