Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a process in which a patient breathes 100 percent oxygen at above-normal atmospheric pressure, increasing the delivery of oxygen to the body. This oxygen enhances the body’s natural healing process, and studies show the treatment to be very helpful in aiding the body’s recovery from certain kinds of wounds and other medical injuries.In wound care, HBOT is used for select chronic, non-healing wounds, osteomyelitis, and failing skin grafts and flaps. The compromised tissue is super-saturated with oxygen and new capillary growth occurs. There are many benefits to augmenting wound treatment with hyperbaric oxygen therapy, i.e. hyperoxygenation, angiogenesis, fibroblast proliferation, leukocyte oxidative killing, toxin inhibition and antibiotic synergies. With chronic, non-healing wounds becoming a multi-million dollar healthcare problem, Kindred Hospital is ready to meet the growing demands Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.
