Wound Care & Hyperbaric Medicine
About This Specialty
Wound Care & Hyperbaric Medicine provides comprehensive care for chronic and nonhealing wounds caused by surgery, diabetes, poor circulation and other conditions.
Our specialists evaluate wounds and determine the appropriate plan to effectively treat each patient’s injury. One tool for healing wounds is the hyperbaric chamber, which provides 100 percent oxygen to promote optimal healing. While breathing pure oxygen, the patient’s blood plasma becomes saturated and carries 20 to 30 percent more oxygen to the body’s tissue, which results in natural wound healing mechanisms in the body to function more effectively.
Some of the conditions we treat include:
- Carbon monoxide poisoning
- Diabetic wounds
- Post-radiation tissue injury
- Pressure ulcers
- Wounds caused by poor circulation or traumatic injury
