Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Mercy Health System hospitals often use hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HbOT), a medical treatment carried out in a pressurized chamber utilizing 100% oxygen, which leads to increased oxygen in the tissues. HbOT also enhances the body's natural healing and strengthens the immunce system, in which the patient rests inside a pressurized chamber breathing 100% oxygen.
Our physician panel works with nationally certified wound, ostomy and continence nurses and HbOT-certified technicians to help patients with:
- Diabetic wounds
- Arterial/ischemic wounds
- Collagen vascular disease
- Non-healing surgical sites
- Venous stasis
- Pressure Sores or Ulcers
- Radiation soft-tissue injuries
The Center also offers an easy referral process; ongoing and regular communication with and progress updates for referring physicians; and free transportation for patients.
