SCR Advanced Wound Care offers Hyperbaric Oxygen (HBO) therapy for the treatment of certain chronic non-healing wounds. Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy is indicated for about 20% of wound care patients. The therapy is a non-invasive, proven treatment that allows patients to breathe 100% oxygen inside a pressurized chamber.
The therapy quickly delivers high concentrations of oxygen to the bloodstream, accelerating healing by:
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatment sessions
- Promoting new blood vessels
- Decreasing swelling and inflammation
- Improving circulation
- Increasing the body’s ability to fight infection
- Clearing out toxins and metabolic waste products
The average healing plan involves daily treatments lasting between 60-90 minutes, 5 days a week for four to six-weeks. During treatment, patients may watch TV or sleep, making their experience a comfortable one.
