Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy – How it Works
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 sit back, 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:
- Actinomycosis (inflamed tissue in the mouth or jaw)
- Chronic refractory osteomyelitis (persistent bone infection after treatment for osteomyelitis)
- Crush injuries and severed limbs
- Diabetic wounds of the lower extremities in people who:
- Have type I or type II diabetes and a lower extremity wound that is due to diabetes
- 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.
- Injury to the soft tissue caused by radiation
- Osteoradionecrosis (radiation injury to the bone)
- Peripheral arterial insufficiency (muscle pain or cramping in limbs caused by physical activity)
