using hyperbaric oxygen to treat wounds

Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment (HBOT) is a therapy in which a patient breathes 100 percent oxygen while relaxing in a pressurized chamber. This delivers high concentrations of oxygen to the blood stream and the wound, which helps the body create new small blood vessels, enhances the body's ability to fight infection and rapidly speeds the healing process. Treatments are individualized for each patient, based on their diagnosis and their body's response to therapy. Approximately 15 to 20 percent of patients who are treated for non-healing wounds may require HBOT.
