Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine



Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy at the Wound Care and Hyperbaric Centers at Methodist Dallas, Methodist Charlton, Methodist Mansfield, and Methodist Richardson  

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) uses a hyperbaric oxygen chamber to speed wound healing. The chamber contains concentrated, specially pressurized oxygen. Lying in this chamber, breathing normally increases the concentration of oxygen in the blood. This makes more oxygen available to damaged body tissues, which helps the tissues repair themselves.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can be used for the treatment of difficult medical problems such as:

  • Chronic problem wounds, including diabetic foot wounds and diabetic foot ulcers of the lower extremities
  • Compromised skin grafts and flaps
  • Radiation injury
  • Chronic refractory osteomyelitis
  • Acute traumatic peripheral ischemia
  • Necrotizing soft tissue infections
  • Gas gangrene
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Crush injuries
  • Actinomycosis
  • Severe anemia
  • Decompression sickness

 

Texas law prohibits hospitals from practicing medicine. The physicians on the Methodist Health System medical staff are independent practitioners who are not employees or agents of Methodist Health System or any of its affiliated hospitals.
