What is hyperbaric oxygen therapy?
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a medical treatment in which the entire body is under increased atmospheric pressure and the patient breaths 100 percent oxygen. Greater amounts of oxygen entering the body promote blood oxygen flow to damaged tissue, reduced infection, increased healing of the wounds, reduced swelling, and preservation of tissue. This treatment is not painful and there are very few side effects.
At the Center for Wound Healing, we use a single person (monoplace) chamber. The chamber is approximately eight feet long and about 34 inches wide. This unit is comfortable and allows the patient to watch a movie or their favorite TV programs. A certified hyperbaric oxygen technician is always in attendance.
