Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) helps the body’s oxygen-dependent, wound-healing mechanisms function more efficiently. While enclosed in a chamber at greater-than-normal atmospheric pressure, patients breathe pure oxygen, saturating their blood plasma and allowing it to carry from 15 to 20 times the normal amount of healing oxygen to the body’s tissues. Up to 18 percent of wound care patients may require HBOT treatments, provided by Valir Wound Care physician. Dr. Hursh who is specialty-trained in hyperbaric medicine, and our highly trained clinical hyperbaric technicians and staff.
