Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

In hyperbaric oxygen therapy, patients breathe 100 percent oxygen while relaxing in a pressurized cylinder called a hyperbaric chamber. This process increases the concentration of oxygen in the patient's bloodstream and wound, which can rapidly accelerate the healing process, help the body fight infection, decrease swelling and help in the growth of new blood vessels.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can be used to treat a wide range of conditions, including decompression sickness, carbon monoxide poisoning, traumatic crush injuries, air embolism bone infections and necrotizing soft-tissue infections.
