  • Non-Healing Wounds

    Non-Healing Wounds: Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) increases the amount of oxygen delivered to the affected tissues, promoting wound healing. The increased oxygenation also enhances the function of white blood cells, which can help fight infection in the wound.

  • Complications of Radiation Therapy

    Complications of Radiation Therapy: Radiation therapy can cause damage to healthy tissue, leading to complications such as radiation-induced tissue injury and necrosis. HBOT can promote tissue healing and regeneration by increasing oxygen delivery to the affected tissues, reducing inflammation, and promoting the formation of new blood vessels.

  • Bone Infections – Osteomyelitis

    Osteomyelitis: HBOT can help in the treatment of osteomyelitis by promoting the delivery of oxygen to the affected bone tissue, reducing bacterial growth and promoting tissue healing..

  • Air or Gas Embolism (Bends)

    HBOT can help treat air or gas embolism by increasing the pressure of oxygen dissolved in the blood, which can help reduce the size of the bubbles and prevent further damage to the affected tissue.

  • Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

    HBOT can help treat carbon monoxide poisoning by increasing the oxygen delivery to the body, thereby reducing the amount of carbon monoxide in the blood and promoting tissue healing.

  • Clostridial Myositis & Myonecrosis (Gas Gangrene)

    HBOT can help in the treatment of gas gangrene by increasing oxygen delivery to the affected tissues, inhibiting the growth of bacteria and promoting tissue healing.

  • Decompression Sickness/Illness & Arterial Gas Embolism

    HBOT can help in the treatment of decompression sickness and arterial gas embolism by increasing the pressure of oxygen dissolved in the blood, reducing the size of bubbles, and promoting tissue healing.

  • Exceptional Blood Loss – Anemia

    HBOT can help in the treatment of anemia by increasing the amount of oxygen delivered to the tissues, promoting tissue healing, and enhancing the function of white blood cells.

  • Intracranial Abscess

    HBOT can help in the treatment of intracranial abscess by increasing oxygen delivery to the affected tissues, reducing inflammation, and promoting tissue healing.

  • Thermal Burns

    HBOT can help in the treatment of thermal burns by increasing oxygen delivery to the affected tissues, reducing inflammation, and promoting tissue healing.

  • Necrotizing Soft Tissue Infections

    HBOT can help in the treatment of necrotizing soft tissue infections by increasing oxygen delivery to the affected tissues, inhibiting bacterial growth, reducing inflammation, and promoting tissue healing.

  • Crush Injury

    HBOT can help in the treatment of crush injuries by increasing oxygen delivery to the affected tissues, reducing inflammation, and promoting tissue healing.

  • Skin Grafts & Flaps (Compromised)

    HBOT can help in the treatment of compromised skin grafts and flaps by increasing oxygen delivery to the affected tissues, promoting tissue healing, and enhancing the function of white blood cells.
