Wound Care Treatment

Are you in need of a wound care strategy? We provide treatment plans to patients with many types of wounds, ostomies and clinical conditions. Wounds may result from a variety of diseases, vascular insufficiency, trauma, surgery or immobility. These wounds may become infected or lead to complications. Advanced and comprehensive wound care is provided by experienced physicians and certified wound and ostomy nurses. Treatment plans are made specific to the type and severity of the wound.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBO)

hyperbaric chamberHyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBO) is a modality in which the entire body is exposed to oxygen under increased atmospheric pressure. The patient is entirely enclosed in a monoplaced chamber breathing 100% oxygen (02) at greater than one atmosphere pressure. Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy serves four primary functions:
  1. It increases the concentration of dissolved oxygen in the blood, which augments oxygenation
  2. all parts of the body; and
  3. It replaces inert gas in the bloodstream with oxygen, which is then metabolized by the body; and
  4. It may stimulate the formation of a collagen matrix and angiogenesis; and
  5. It acts as a bactericide for certain susceptible bacteria.
Developed as treatment for decompression illness, this modality is an established therapy for treating medical disorders such as carbon monoxide poisoning, gas gangrene, acute decompression illness and air embolism. HBO is also considered acceptable as adjunctive therapy in the treatment of sequella of acute vascular compromise and in the management of some disorders that are refractory to standard medical and surgical care or the result of radiation injury.
