What is hyperbaric oxygen therapy?
Injured body tissue requires extra oxygen to survive. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy promotes healing by helping to carry oxygen to the injured tissue.
Hyperbaric oxygen treatments are approved for many injuries and conditions:
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a proven way to help the body heal. The CMH Advanced Wound Clinic has two hyperbaric oxygen chambers available to patients.
Hyperbaric oxygen chambers contain air pressure that is three times higher than the standard, allowing the lungs to breathe in more oxygen than is possible at normal air pressure.
Inside the chamber, the patient inhales 100% oxygen. The increased oxygen then dissolves into the plasma to reduce swelling and promote swift healing.
