Treatment of Non-Healing Wounds 
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is one important option in the treatment of non-healing wounds. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy involves administering 100 percent oxygen to patients in an environment of increased atmospheric pressure, known as a hyperbaric chamber. The process increases oxygen level in both blood and tissue to promote healing.

While hyperbaric oxygen therapy was initially used to treat divers with decompression sickness, its role has expanded due to rigorous testing and positive outcomes. It has become a safe treatment option for many other illnesses and medical conditions such as difficult wounds. Medicare and most insurance companies approve hyperbaric oxygen therapy for the treatment of patients with qualifying wounds.

These wounds typically are diabetic ulcers, arterial ulcers and other types of wounds that fail to respond to conservative therapy.
