Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
If you have problematic wounds, you may be a candidate for hyperbaric oxygen therapy, a treatment in which you breathe 100 percent oxygen from inside a pressurized chamber for short periods of time. This therapy can be beneficial for treating wounds that are difficult to heal. See the video below on hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
Therapy to Promote Healing
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is used to enhance healing of wounds, particularly those that are difficult to heal or infected.
During treatment, you lie in a pressurized chamber of pure oxygen and breathe normally, which increases the amount of oxygen in the blood. Hillcrest Pryor’s doctors may use hyperbaric oxygen therapy to treat conditions such as:
- Air or gas embolisms
- Bone infections
- Chronic wounds caused by diabetes, circulatory problems or many other conditions
- Crush injuries and other traumatic injuries that compromise blood supply to tissues
- Decompression sickness
- Poisoning from carbon monoxide or cyanide
- Pressure sores
- Radiation treatment injuries or thermal burns
- Refractory osteomyelitis
- Skin grafts
- Wounds that have not healed with other therapies, such as diabetic foot ulcers
Your doctor can determine if this therapy is right for you. For more information, please call 918-824-7901.
