Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has proven to be a very effective form of treatment for patients suffering from ulcers and other types of diabetic wounds. It can help prevent an infection that could potentially result in a lengthy hospital stay or even the loss of a limb. DFW Wound Care Center experts have a great deal of experience in providing this type of therapy and a well-established track record of success.
What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?
When someone has diabetes, the risk of a severe infection is, unfortunately, a constant threat. Any type of wound can quickly turn into a serious problem, providing a breeding ground for potentially harmful bacterial. The earlier a wound is detected and treated, the better the chances of avoiding complications. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a proven, non-invasive treatment.
This therapy enhances the flow of oxygen, providing much-needed nutrients that can promote rapid wound healing. Studies have shown that hyperbaric oxygen therapy has a success rate of between 70-90 percent in diabetic patients.
A patient undergoing hyperbaric oxygen therapy lies in an enclosed chamber, receiving pure oxygen through increased atmospheric pressure. This allows the body to more efficiently incorporate oxygen into plasma and blood cells, helping to enhance the healing process.
