Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can accelerate wound healing.

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
    soft-tissue radionecrosis
  • 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.

Impact of Hyperbaric Oxygen on More Advanced Wagner Grades 3 and 4 Diabetic Foot Ulcers: Matching Therapy to Specific Wound Conditions

The goal of this research was to identify a population of diabetic foot ulcer patients who demonstrate a significant response to hyperbaric ox- ygen therapy (HBOT) using a large sample size to provide guidance for cli- nicians when treating these complicated patients.

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.
