Doppler Evaluation of Pulses: Determines blood flow available to transport nutrients and medications to the wound.
Transcutaneous Oxygen Monitoring (TcP02): Determines the level of oxygenation available to the wound to promote healing.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBO2T): In this treatment, the patient breathes 100% oxygen at increased atmospheric pressures. This increases the oxygen levels in body tissues for the promotion of healing and the fighting of infection.
Wound Debridement: An outpatient procedure that enhances the growth of healthy tissue around the wound.
Wound Dressings: Each wound care product is chosen based on the needs of the patient. The proper dressing promotes the correct environment the body requires to heal.
Hyperbaric Chamber

What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

Breathing 100% oxygen at increased atmospheric pressure is a painless, proven way to help the body heal. Hyperbaric oxygen chambers work by surrounding the patient with 100% oxygen at higher than normal atmospheric pressure in sessions that last 90 minutes to two hours. This increases the amount of oxygen in the patient’s blood allowing red blood cells to pass more easily through the plasma into the wounds to heal them from the inside out. We have all new state of the art hyperbaric chambers with a comfort curve smooth ride.
