Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
Prior to your initial hyperbaric oxygen 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 physicians treat both pediatric and adult patients, even those who are intubated and in critical condition. All of the nurses are ICU-trained and certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) and Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS).
The hyperbaric chamber at Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center is the only multi-place chamber in the city of Houston and the only unit in the Memorial Hermann Health System accredited by the Undersea Hyperbaric and Medical Society (UHMS). The chamber 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 multi-place chamber, which allows for 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.
The unit is the only chamber on the Texas Gulf Coast and is registered with the Diver Alert Network (DAN), providing 24/7 emergency and hyperbaric services.
Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center has the only 24/7 emergency call Hyperbaric Medicine Unit in the city of Houston. For information or questions contact the Hyperbaric Medicine Unit at (713) 704-5900.
