Cedar Park Regional Medical Center’s hyperbaric medicine treatment options surround patients with difficult wounds with 100% oxygen in a comfortable, pressurized chamber. This saturation promotes the body’s natural immune system and healing responses, allowing wounds to heal more easily, from the inside out.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is one of several advanced wound care modalities provided at the Cedar Park Regional Medical Center Wound Care Center. HBO is used adjunctively with other procedures such as revascularization or as a primary treatment with other options fail.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBO) is a medical treatment in which a patient breathes 100% oxygen while lying inside a pressurized chamber. This quickly increases the concentration of oxygen in the bloodstream, where it is delivered to a patient's wound site for faster healing. Essentially, HBO helps heal the wound from the inside out.
Breathing 100% oxygen under pressure causes the oxygen to diffuse into the blood plasma. This oxygen-rich plasma is able to travel past the restriction, diffusing up to 3 times further into the tissue. The pressurized environment helps to reduce swelling and discomfort, while providing the body with at least 10 times its normal supply of oxygen to help repair damaged tissue. HBO can help reduce swelling, fight infection, and build new vessels, ultimately producing healthy tissue.
