What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is where a patient is placed in a special hyperbaric chamber and exposed to 100% oxygen at 2-3 times the atmospheric pressure. During Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, blood carries oxygen throughout the body to saturate tissues and plasma. This delivers about 20-30 times more oxygen than breathing at sea level.
Treatments can vary in length depending on the condition being treated but typically are about two hours long, five days a week, for as many as 40 treatments. Some conditions may require being treated twice daily. For after hour emergency indications, please contact the Tri-State Memorial Hospital Emergency Department.
Tri-State Hyperbaric Services’ trained staff members will be present during treatments and in full communication to address the needs of patients.
The following is a list of approved indications for treatment with hyperbaric oxygen.
Air or gas embolism
Carbon monoxide poisoning
Central retinal artery occlusion
Chronic infected diabetic foot ulcers
Chronic intracranial abscess
Chronic refractory osteomyelitis
Decompression illness (the “bends”)
Delayed radiation injuries of the bone and soft tissues
Idiopathic sudden hearing loss
Preparation and preservation of compromised skin grafts and/or flaps
