Healogics® is actively following the coronavirus situation closely and takes the health and safety of our patients and team members very seriously. This is an emerging, rapidly evolving situation and we are closely monitoring the most up-to-date recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
We recognize the important role our Wound Care Centers play in the local healthcare community in treating patients suffering with wounds and to limit the demand on the local hospital. This is especially important now as hospital systems run the risk of potentially being overtaxed during the COVID-19 outbreak.
AAWC HBO COVID Webinar Recap: The Effects of HBO Therapy on COVID Patients
Healogics Chief Medical Officer, Dr. William Ennis, recaps a webinar presented by AAWC. In the webinar, Dr. Thibodeaux and Dr. Serena discuss cases on COVID patients treated with HBOT. All patients have thus far improved and avoided intubation.
Your best protection against all respiratory viruses is to:
- Avoid close contact with people by practicing social distancing.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Make sure to cover your nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Practice frequent hand washing.
Common signs of infection include fever and respiratory symptoms, including cough and shortness of breath. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms please contact your Wound Care Center® before coming in for your appointment so we may best accommodate you.
