What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, or HBOT, is an Advanced Wound Care medical treatment in which a patient breathes 100% oxygen while under pressure in a hyperbaric chamber.

Who is HBOT for?

  • Diabetics with a wound that is slow to heal, or is not healing
  • Someone with damaged tissue from radiation therapy
  • A patient with a skin graft that has a questionable blood supply
  • Those with certain infections of the bone and/or skin
  • Anyone with a wound that has shown no improvement in 4 weeks

During Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, patients relax in special chambers and therapy is monitored by expertly trained technicians that work in collaboration with onsite physicians.
