What is hyperbaric oxygen therapy?

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is an outpatient treatment for wounds that are slow to heal.
During HBOT, the patient lies down in a transparent, airtight, pressurized chamber. In the chamber,
100 percent oxygen is delivered at a high pressure. The increased pressure and levels of oxygen
help to heal damaged tissue by:

  • Promoting the creation of new blood vessels
  • Supplying the bloodstream with 100 percent rich oxygen
  • Enhancing the body’s ability to fight infection and kill bacteria
  • Reducing swelling and inflammation
  • Improving the rate of healing of chronic wounds

When to seek specialized wound care

You may need expert care if your wound:

  • Has not healed in four to six weeks
  • Has become worse in four to six weeks
