Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a medical treatment in which the body is exposed to 100% oxygen while under increased atmospheric pressure. HBOT must be used in addition to standard wound care and is usually recommended when there are no measurable signs of healing after 30 days of standard wound care.
During treatment, patients can relax, read, nap, listen to music, or watch a movie. The only physical sensation that may be felt is slight pressure in the eardrums.
A referral from a physician is required for HBOT.
HBOT is used to treat a variety of conditions:
- Chronic refractory osteomyelitis
- Crush injuries and severed limbs
- Diabetic wounds of the lower extremities in people who:
- Have a wound classified as Wagner grade III or higher, which could be classified as gangrene
- Have received an unsuccessful course of standard wound therapy
- Have type I or type II diabetes and a lower extremity wound that is due to diabetes
- Injury to the soft tissue caused by radiation
- Peripheral arterial insufficiency
