Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a treatment in which the patient breathes 100% oxygen while inside a treatment chamber. The increase in oxygen in the blood encourages the creation of blood vessels and increases the production of collagen, the body’s natural ‘scaffolding’ – both necessary for wound healing. HBO can be the primary treatment or it can be used in combination with other treatments. Around 13 percent of wound care patients treated may be eligible for HBO.
