Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric Medicine

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
  • Osteomyelitis
The Center also offers an easy referral process; ongoing and regular communication with and progress updates for referring physicians; and free transportation for patients.
