Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Experience a faster recovery from a variety of wounds and other medical conditions. By breathing 100% pure oxygen while under increased atmospheric pressure, patients are able to absorb oxygen at a quicker rate, greatly enhancing the body's ability to heal wounds, reduce swelling and fight infections.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is safe, simple and has been proven effective for the treatment of conditions such as:
- Acute sensorineural hearing loss
- Air or gas embolism
- Carbon monoxide poisoning
- Crush injury
- Decompression sickness
- Arterial insufficiencies
- Intracranial abscess
- Enhancement of healing in selected problem wounds
- Severe anemia
- Necrotizing soft tissue infections
- Delayed radiation injury
- Compromised skin grafts and flaps
- Thermal burns
