Hyperbaric Therapy  Hyperbaric Oxygen (HBO) or Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is the application of 100% oxygen under pressure. HBO is administered in rigid chambers.  The patient is perfectly comfortable and can relax and watch a movie or television under the close supervision of our physician and technical staff. HBO has broad application in medicine with 13 Medicare approved indications. Most patients and physicians can identify hyperbaric therapy as useful for the bends or decompression sickness. Few realize the other utilities which includes: necrotizing infections (necrotizing fasciitis & gas gangrene),  trauma (crush injuries, compartment syndrome, acute peripheral ischemia), arterial gas emboli, carbon monoxide poisoning, chronic refractory osteomyelitis and of course selective wounding.    Hyperbaric Therapy as Adjunctive or Additive Wound Care Hyperbaric has special utility for selective wound types. HBO is adjunctive therapy which means it is administered along with conservative proper wound care.  HBO confers additional benefits in terms of wound healing.
