Specialized wound care nursing

Nurses at Methodist’s Wound Care and Hyperbaric Centers have received specialized training and are experts in hyperbaric medicine and wound care.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy

This emerging technology 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
