Enhanced Healing For Problem Wounds
The hyperbaric oxygen therapy chambers at Hutchinson Regional offer hope to patients with non-healing wounds, those that don’t respond to conventional treatment measures. The chamber supersaturates the body with pressurized oxygen to promote tissue healing, a reassuring thought if you’re facing life-, limb- or oxygen-related deficits.
Hyperbaric oxygen treatments bring relief to many patients, helping themheal faster, reduce pain, swelling and infections, and save a limb.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy helps treat:
- Diabetic wounds
- Osteomyelitis (bone infections)
- Radiation-induced injuries
- Severe crush injuries
- Compromised skin grafts or flaps
- Other life- or limb-threatening conditions
- Acute arterial insufficiency
The Wound and Hyperbaric Center at Hutchinson Regional is becoming one of the fastest-growing wound care facilities in the region with two hyperbaric oxygen chambers now available.
