Our wound specialists can assist with the diagnosis and treatment of even the most difficult to heal wounds. Wound Therapy Services offers special outpatient treatment for wounds that have not healed in 8 to 12 weeks, including diabetic ulcers, vascular wounds, wounds resulting from trauma, post-surgical wounds and dog and spider bites. Specially trained physicians and nurses use the latest therapeutic procedures to help heal chronic wounds and sores that have resisted other forms of treatment.

Hyperbarics

What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a medical treatment that is used to treat a limited but diverse series of illnesses. It may be the primary treatment for some disorders, but it is often used as part of a combined program involving antibiotics and surgery. In order to provide patients with hyperbaric oxygen therapy, a pressurized chamber is necessary. The patient is placed within the chamber, which is then compressed to the level ordered by the consulting hyperbaric physician, using pure oxygen. Hyperbaric oxygen is a simple concept. The air we breathe contains 21 percent oxygen. Providing 100 percent oxygen by face mask without the use of a chamber has certain limited benefits. By providing pure oxygen in a pressurized chamber, we are able to deliver two to three times that which can be provided by breathing 100 percent oxygen with no increase in pressure. This “hyperbaric” (or high pressure) dose of oxygen offers distinct therapeutic benefits.
