What Is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)?

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a groundbreaking treatment that harnesses the healing potential of oxygen. At Wound and Burn Centers of America, we bring this transformative therapy to patients with complex wounds, burn injuries, and medical illnesses. By breathing in high-concentration oxygen in a pressurized chamber, HBOT enhances tissue oxygenation, reduces inflammation, promotes new blood vessel formation, and stimulates the body’s natural healing processes. Led by Dr. Hajhosseini, our expert team ensures safe and personalized HBOT sessions tailored to your specific needs to accelerate healing.

Who Can Benefit From Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) offers potential benefits to individuals facing conditions characterized by low tissue oxygen levels, poor circulation, and prolonged inflammation. Whether it’s complex wounds, burn injuries, osteomyelitis, compromised skin grafts, or even conditions like long COVID-19, HBOT can be utilized as a primary or adjunctive therapy. At Wound and Burn Centers of America, our expert team leverages HBOT to enhance healing outcomes and improve the quality of life for patients facing these challenges.

Conditions Treated By Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy:

  • Complex Wounds: HBOT aids in healing wounds that are difficult to treat or slow to heal.
  • Burn Injuries: It promotes healing and tissue regeneration in burn-affected areas.
  • Osteomyelitis: HBOT helps combat refractory bone infections.
  • Compromised Skin Grafts and Tissue Flaps: It improves blood flow and enhances the success of skin grafts and tissue flaps.
  • Long COVID-19: HBOT addresses returning or ongoing symptoms due to prolonged inflammation, impaired immune system, and organ damage.
  • Air or Gas Embolism: It helps in resolving air or gas bubbles trapped in blood vessels.
  • Carbon Monoxide Poisoning: HBOT reduces carbon monoxide levels in the blood.
  • Cyanide Poisoning: It aids in addressing cyanide build-up in the blood.
  • Crush Injury, Compartment Syndrome, and Other Acute Traumatic Ischemia: HBOT assists in treating conditions with inadequate blood supply.
  • Decompression Sickness: It addresses injuries from rapid pressure changes in air or water environments.
  • Central Retinal Artery Occlusion: HBOT helps restore blood flow to the retina and mitigate vision loss.
  • Severe Anemia: It improves oxygen flow to organs affected by a lack of healthy red blood cells.
  • Intracranial Abscess: HBOT supports the treatment of brain abscesses caused by infections.
  • Necrotizing Soft Tissue Infections: It aids in combating severe infections known as flesh-eating diseases.
  • Clostridial Myositis and Myonecrosis: HBOT addresses gas gangrene infections in muscle tissue.
  • Actinomycosis: It assists in treating bacterial infections causing abscesses and sinus tracts.
  • Delayed Radiation Injury: HBOT helps with soft tissue and bony necrosis resulting from radiation exposure.
  • Idiopathic Sudden Sensorineural Hearing Loss: It addresses sudden, unexplained hearing loss.
  • Acute Peripheral Arterial Insufficiency: HBOT improves oxygen and nutrient supply to tissues with poor arterial blood flow.

How Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Helps With Complex Wounds, Burn Injuries, and Medical Illnesses

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) plays a crucial role in promoting healing and recovery for complex wounds, burn injuries and medical illnesses. By delivering high levels of oxygen in a pressurized chamber, HBOT increases oxygen availability to compromised tissues, activating fibroblasts and stimulating collagen production for wound healing. It reduces inflammation, promotes blood vessel formation, stimulates growth factors, and regulates bone regeneration. These physiological effects synergistically contribute to the restoration of tissue function and improved outcomes for patients undergoing HBOT.”
