Hyperbaric oxygen therapy offers painless and effective chronic wound treatment.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is an advanced treatment for non-healing and traumatic injuries.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can accelerate wound healing for your patients.
HBOT is commonly used for these conditions:
- Chronic refractory osteomyelitis
- Crush injuries and suturing of severed limbs
- Diabetic wounds of the lower extremities
- Delayed effects of radiation injuries, such as osteroradionecrosis and
- Preparation and preservation of compromised skin grafts
By offering HBOT at your hospital or referring your patients to a Wound Care Center®, your patients get convenient access to a well-regarded wound treatment therapy with a high rate of success. Patients are generally very satisfied with this painless technique, during which they can watch a movie or just relax.

HBOT increases the dissolved oxygen content in blood plasma. Functionally speaking, this translates into a systemic increase in reactive oxygen (oxygen free radicals) and reactive nitrogen species. The direct result includes a number of physiological benefits to the wounded host.Go to Download
