Hyperbaric Wound Clinic

Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is used for advanced, complicated wounds that do not heal on their own.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) works by increasing the amount of oxygen in the blood to stimulate new tissue growth. The Hyperbaric Wound Clinic treats acute conditions and chronic wounds, including:

  • Diabetic foot ulcers
  • Pressure ulcers
  • Surgical wounds
  • Burns
  • Poisoning
  • Infections

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Oxygen therapy is administered in an enclosed hyperbaric chamber of pressurized oxygen. While inside the chamber, patients breathe pure oxygen, which saturates the plasma in their blood. This helps the body's wound-healing mechanisms function more efficiently.

When the body is exposed to pressurized oxygen, new blood vessels grow and replace damaged blood vessels. This restores blood flow and aids healing.

Benefits of HBOT

Increasing the amount of dissolved oxygen in the blood through HBOT promotes wound healing by:

  • Fighting infection
  • Reducing inflammation and toxin production
  • Repairing damaged tissue through enhanced oxygen delivery to tissues
  • Increasing circulation and promoting the growth of new blood vessels
  • Reducing pain
