About Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbaric therapy is often associated with treating decompression sickness among divers, carbon monoxide poisoning, and gas gangrene. It is also effective at promoting wound healing and fighting infection. Breathing 100 percent oxygen at increased atmospheric pressure, which can only occur within a pressurized chamber, triggers the body’s natural wound-healing mechanisms so they can function more effectively.
Candidates for Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment
You may be a candidate for hyperbaric oxygen treatment if you have slow-healing wounds resulting from diabetes, traumatic injury, radiation therapy, circulatory disorders, burns, or significant skin infections. We also treat people who have experienced carbon monoxide poisoning, smoke inhalation, and damaging air or gas bubbles in their blood vessels. Our board-certified physicians work with you and the physicians who manage your care to ensure you get the treatment you need. Our goal is to develop a treatment plan that helps you recover quickly.
