Hyperbaric Medicine

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a clinical treatment in which the patient breathes 100% oxygen while enclosed in a chamber which is pressurized to greater than one atmosphere. Several trends are driving the growth of hyperbaric medicine, including the increase in diabetes and individuals who develop non-healing wounds as well as the advancement of the chambers themselves making HBOT a safe, well tolerated procedure.
