Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is administered in a single patient hyperbaric chamber that delivers 100% oxygen to patients in an environment of increased atmospheric pressure. The therapy works throughout your entire body as the increased level of oxygen enters the blood and body tissues.

Hyperbaric chambers encompass the whole patient, and are constructed of clear acrylic plastic to allow a full view outside of the chamber, and allow our staff to monitor and support critically ill patients.

The Benefits

Patients with diabetes often develop severe non-healing wounds, requiring surgical intervention.

Diabetics with pressure ulcers, arterial ulcers and other types of wounds that fail to respond to conservative therapy may also be candidates for hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
