Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a safe and evidence-based treatment proven to speed the healing process in certain types of wounds. In fact, many patients find it to be a relaxing process. The clear chambers are equipped with televisions and comfortable bedding, so patients are free to watch their favorite tv show, movie or even take a nap.
Healing the wound from the inside out
During the treatments, patient’s breath 100% oxygen inside the pressurized chamber, quickly increasing the concentration of oxygen in the bloodstream, where it is delivered to the patient’s wound site for faster healing. A typical course of treatment involves the patient spending about 90 minutes a day in the chamber five days per week over a 4 – 6 week period.
