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 treatments are beneficial for patients who have certain types of complicated or slow-healing wounds, such as bone infections or diabetic foot ulcers. The treatments work in conjunction with other treatments, such as antibiotics, to accelerate the healing process.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBO) is one of several advanced wound care modalities provided at the Cedar Park Regional Wound Care Center. HBO is used adjunctively with other procedures such as revascularization or as a primary treatment when other options fail.
