The Chambers

The hyperbaric chambers are non-invasive, clear acrylic chambers that provide 100 percent oxygen to promote the optimum healing opportunity. While breathing pure oxygen, the patient's blood plasma becomes saturated, carrying 20 to 30 times the normal amount of oxygen to the body's tissue. The ultimate result is the body's natural, oxygen-dependent wound healing mechanisms are able to function more efficiently. Continued use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy increases the body's immune and healing response.

Conditions that may benefit from hyperbaric oxygen therapy include:

  • Diabetic wounds of the lower extremity
  • Wounds that have not healed in several weeks
  • Post-radiation tissue injury
  • Diabetes-related foot and ankle ulcers
  • Crash injuries
  • Wounds caused by poor circulation or trauma
  • Compromised grafts and flaps
  • Gangrene
  • Pressure ulcers
  • Necrotizing soft tissue infections
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning 
  • Acute traumatic peripheral ischemia
  • Compromised skin grafts and flaps
  • Osteomyelitis
  • Actinomycosis
