Promote Healing with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy at Florida Medical Clinic
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is one of the leading-edge treatments offered at Florida Medical Clinic’s Center for Wound Healing. By using pure oxygen to stimulate the body’s natural healing process, hyperbaric oxygen treatment can accelerate cellular regeneration and growth.
During hyperbaric oxygen treatment, patients relax in a pressurized chamber and breathe a solution of 100% oxygen (in contrast to regular air, which contains just 21 percent oxygen). Because wounds require oxygen to heal, temporarily increasing the amount of oxygen in a patient’s bloodstream can help speed up the process. Heightened oxygen levels can also help individuals more effectively fight off infections.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can be used to accelerate the healing of a number of conditions, including:
- Second- and third-degree burns
- Trauma wounds
- Diabetes- and radiation-induced wounds
- Soft tissue infections
This innovative treatment can also be used to alleviate decompression sickness experienced by deep sea divers.
At Florida Medical Clinic, hyperbaric oxygen treatment is typically administered only after other treatment methods do not produce the desired results, but it can be a safe and effective option for patients who meet certain requirements. Our wound care specialists have more than 40 years of combined experience in the field, and we help our patients find the most appropriate therapies for their needs.
