Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT)—breathing 100% pure oxygen delivered under pressure—is one of the most advanced treatments to help heal wounds. HBOT encourages new blood vessels to grow in damaged tissues. It also helps fight some types of infection.

When HBOT Helps

Using the body’s natural healing processes, HBOT helps treat many conditions, including:

  • Wounds that heal slowly or not at all, such as diabetic ulcers
  • Skin grafts where not enough blood reaches the area
  • Tissues injured during radiation therapy
  • Some types of bone and/or skin infections

Other conditions that may respond to HBOT:

  • Osteomyelitis
  • Osteoradionecrosis
  • Clostridial myonecrosis
  • Decompression sickness
  • Crush injuries
  • Gas embolism
  • Progressive necrotizing infections
  • Carbon monoxide/cyanide/sulfide intoxication
