Patients with problem wounds often failed to improve with conventional approaches. When the treatment team begins its work, it usually starts by making a medical evaluation to assess the microcirculation. After a nutritional assessment is made, debridement may be indicated, as well as HBOT therapy.
HYPERBARIC OXYGEN THERAPY (HBOT) is an innovative treatment program that provides a solution for patients with problem wounds. Metro Hyperbaric and Wound Healing Center uses modern modes of delivering wound care to improve outcomes. People who can benefit include those with burns, diabetic ulcers, pressure sores, and arterial ulcers. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy provides following effects: - Advance wound healing - Greater blood vessel formation - Increased oxygen delivery to the injured tissue. - Reduced effect from toxic substances
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is the administration of 100% oxygen at pressure greater than normal atmospheric pressure. Treatments are given within a chamber compressed between two and three times atmospheric pressure. The patient breathing of oxygen directly results in an increase in tissue oxygen concentration of 18-20 times normal.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a medical treatment that is used to treat a diverse series of illness. It may be the primary treatment for some disorders, but it is often used as part of a combined program involving other adjunctive treatments, including 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 than pressurized to the level best suited to the individuals treatment program. 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 pressurized 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 just breathing 100 percent oxygen with no increase in pressure. This ‘Hyperbaric’ (high pressure) dose of oxygen offers distinct therapeutic benefits. Commonly, an outpatient treatment schedule would be 90 minutes q.d. at two ATA. However, the treatment length, and the number and frequency of treatments vary according to the condition of the patient being treated. Twenty two treatments is usually the minimum number of sessions.
