How do we provide hyperbaric oxygen therapy?
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy aims at increasing the level of oxygen in your blood to aid healing. Injured tissues require an increased level of energy to heal. Oxygen stimulates the healing and growth of tissues. An increased amount of oxygen also kills bacteria and viruses. By breathing in an increased amount of oxygen, your blood is saturated with oxygen which increases healing.
At Southwest Regional Wound Care Center, we provide hyperbaric oxygen therapy in a single unit or multi-person room. During a hyperbaric oxygen treatment, you will be placed in a pressurized room that is filled with oxygen that is much more than the normal oxygen content available in the air. This is to ensure that you breathe in 100% pure oxygen.
A single hyperbaric oxygen unit is designed for just one person. You will need to lie down on a table that slides into a clear pressurized plastic tube. This pressurized plastic tube is filled with increased level of oxygen. When you slide into the pressurized plastic tube, you will be left there for a period of time so that you can breathe in 100% pure oxygen. You may be left there for as short as 3 minutes or as long as 2 hours depending on the severity of the wound.
A multi-person hyperbaric oxygen room is a pressurized room meant for multiple persons. A multi-person hyperbaric room contains several chairs or beds that patients can sit or lie on. In a multiperson hyperbaric oxygen room, you may need to lie down on a bed or sit down on a comfortable chair inside the pressurized room. An oxygen mask or a clear hood will be placed over your head through which you receive the oxygen.
You will then be able to breathe in oxygen that is multiple times more than the normal oxygen content found in the air. You may feel a temporary feeling of fullness in your ears when receiving the oxygen and this can be relieved by yawning or swallowing. You may also be asked to take short breaks if you will be staying in the oxygen room for a long time to prevent oxygen poisoning.
You may be in the oxygen chamber or room for as short as 3 minutes and as long as 2 hours depending on the severity of your wound.
