Medical Emergency Treatment

Healing a chronic wound has its own set of unique requirements. For most people, wound healing is a natural, uneventful process. But for some, it's a complex medical problem that requires specialized treatment and care.
Because your body needs oxygenated blood to heal wounds, using Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy aids in the healing process through the introduction of pure oxygen to the body. Breathing 100% oxygen under pressure helps your body grow small blood vessels. These new blood vessels, in turn, deliver an on-going supply of oxygen to the wound, helping your body heal.
Patients with the following conditions may benefit from HBOT:
- Diabetic ulcers
- Healing after radiation treatment
- Non-healing wounds and skin ulcers
- Skin grafts that are not healing
- Sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSNHL)
Our team is committed to providing high-quality, patient-centered care. The Hyperbaric Unit is located on the first floor in room E-177 at the South Campus of Bronson Methodist Hospital.
