Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT)

During HBOT, a patient is placed in a hyperbaric oxygen therapy chamber. The air pressure is then increased two to three times higher than normal. This environment allows the lungs to gather extra oxygen, which promotes the healing of wounds—especially those that are difficult to heal or affected by severe soft tissue infections. HBOT may be used to treat:

  • Chronic bone infections
  • Crush injuries
  • Injuries to skin or bones as a side effect of radiation therapy
  • Non-healing skin grafts and flaps
  • Non-healing wounds, such as diabetic foot ulcers
