Hyperbaric oxygen therapy

This emerging technology uses a hyperbaric oxygen chamber to speed wound healing. The chamber contains concentrated, specially pressurized oxygen. Lying in this chamber, breathing normally increases the concentration of oxygen in the blood. This makes more oxygen available to damaged body tissues, which helps the tissues repair themselves.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can be used for the treatment of difficult medical problems such as:

  • Compromised skin grafts and flaps
  • Radiation injury
  • Chronic refractory osteomyelitis
  • Acute traumatic peripheral ischemia
  • Necrotizing soft tissue infections
  • Gas gangrene
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Crush injuries
  • Actinomycosis
  • Severe anemia
  • Decompression sickness
  • Chronic problem wounds, including diabetic foot wounds and diabetic foot ulcers of the lower extremities

Methodist Richardson Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center earned the Robert A. Warriner III, M.D., Center of Excellence award. The Wound Center was recognized for exceeding national quality standards with a 97.5% patient satisfaction rate and a 98% wound healing rate. Out of nearly 800 Healogics Wound Care Centers®, only the top 14% receive this prestigious honor.
