Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy uses elevated oxygen levels to help wounds heal. Patients are placed in a pressurized tube for consecutive appointments to encourage the body to heal wounds and fight infections.

How it works

Your body’s tissues need an adequate supply of oxygen to function. When tissue is injured, it requires even more oxygen to survive. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy increases the amount of oxygen your blood can carry. An increase in blood oxygen temporarily restores normal levels of blood gases and tissue function to promote healing and fight infection.
