Center for Hyperbaric Medicine

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) delivers 100 percent oxygen to a patient in a pressurized chamber. By breathing this oxygenated air under pressure, the level of oxygen in your blood increases. This higher oxygen level has been proven to greatly improve the wound healing process.  Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a proven healing aid for:

  • Chronic non-healing diabetic wounds
  • Late effects of radiation therapy
  • Compromised skin grafts/flaps
  • Chronic bone infections
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Decompression illness
  • Gas emboli
  • Gas gangrene
  • Acute arterial insufficiency
  • Crush injury
  • Necrotizing infection
  • Chronic osteomyelitis
  • Acute neurosensory hearing loss
  • Acute retinal artery occlusion

Health and Prevention

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is an intervention used for the treatment of bone and soft tissue injury from radiation treatment. Radiation treatment for cancer can injure muscle, soft tissue, and bone.  The symptoms can show up months and years later. These symptoms can range from pain and irritation to bleeding and non-healing wounds. This includes areas in the head and neck, breasts, vaginal, bladder and other areas of the body.
