Hyperbaric medicine indications

Hyperbaric medicine, also called hyperbaric oxygen therapy, exposes the body to 100 percent pure oxygen using a hyperbaric chamber. This stimulates healing by:

  • Increasing oxygen delivery to the injured tissue.
  • Promoting blood vessel formation.
  • Improving infection control.
  • Preserving damaged tissues.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is used to treat a limited but diverse group of illnesses and conditions, including:

  • Enhanced healing of problem wounds.
  • Diabetic foot ulcers.
  • Diabetic leg ulcers.
  • Chronic refractory osteomyelitis.
  • Delayed radiation soft tissue injury.
  • Osteoradionecrosis.
  • Arterial insufficiency ulcers.
  • Preparation for skin grafts/flaps.
  • Compromised skin grafts/flaps.

Contact our office to determine how hyperbaric oxygen therapy can be incorporated into your patient's treatment plan.
