The management of wounds can pose major challenges for both patients and their caregivers. Benefitting from state-of-the-art technologies and specialized teams of wound care experts, patients at Florida Hospital not only receive superior treatment of their wounds, but also the underlying issues causing them.
The clinic treats a variety of acute and chronic problems, from ulcers on the feet and legs caused by vascular insufficiencies and diabetes to complex wounds such as necrotizing fasciitis and soft tissue radionecrosis.
To facilitate the healing of wounds, Florida Hospital’s Hyperbaric Medicine and Wound Management Center operates the largest privately owned multi-place hyperbaric chamber in Florida. Here, wounds can be treated in an ideal 100 percent oxygen environment that sends healing oxygen circulating through your body’s tissues and bloodstream. Oxygen-rich blood has proven effective in preserving damaged tissue, controlling infections and promoting healing.
As you receive treatment you can relax in complete comfort, watching television or listening to music while a highly trained team of specialists, nurses and technicians monitors your session in the chamber.
Depending upon the nature of the wound, your treatment plan may include:
- ongoing assessment
- patient education
- localized techniques including debridement and whirlpool therapy
- hyperbaric oxygen therapy
Your team will meet on a regular basis to review your wound management plan and discuss options with you regarding your course of treatment.
