The Treatment Process
After performing a thorough exam of the patient and assessment of the wound(s), including taking photographs to track wound healing progress, our team develops a customized treatment plan that typically involves weekly treatments until the wound heals. If hyperbaric oxygen therapy is ordered, it involves approximately 30 consecutive ‘dives’ in our single-use, private chamber, which houses a television for patients undergoing treatments.
The center's clinical staff’s case management encompasses all of the disciplines necessary to deliver the care plan. The nurses and physicians generate clinical outcome reports, send updates with photos, and are in constant contact with the patient’s primary physician. Our staff works as a team with the patient’s primary physician to provide education and support during treatment and after the wounds have healed.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Treatment
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatment is administered while you are in a pressure chamber, called a monoplace chamber. Only one person is in the chamber at a time, offering privacy and the ability to tailor everything to your needs. Most treatments last approximately two hours.
