Advanced Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Florida Hospital Fish Memorial Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center has brought hyperbaric oxygen therapy into the mainstream of the wound and non-emergency treatment of wounds. Through increased oxygen levels, hyperbaric therapy stimulates the growth of new blood vessels at the wound site, increases the healing capabilities of the body and works to arrest certain types of infection. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy has proven very effective for non-healing wounds, osteomyelitis that does not respond to standard treatment, diabetic leg and foot ulcers, and skin grafts and flaps. Hyperbaric Oxygen is also helpful with patients experiencing side effects from radiation therapy such as soft tissue and bone complications.
What to Expect During HBO
During Hyperbaric Oxygen treatment, patients breathe 100% oxygen in a pressurized chamber allowing for maximized healing. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is beneficial because it stimulates the growth of new blood vessels and increases oxygenation that can arrest certain types of infection and enhance wound healing. HBO is a supplemental therapy to be used in addition to current medical and surgical therapy. Transcutaneous Oxygen Monitoring: (TcPO2) The Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine provides a tool for monitoring oxygen tensions. Transcutaneous oximetry has gained importance as a non-invasive tool for predicting potential candidates for hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
