During Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) the patient breathes 100% oxygen while under pressure, causing oxygen to saturate blood plasma to the level 20 times normal. This high-level oxygen may be delivered 4 times further into diseased tissue than by breathing air alone. This high oxygen environment builds new blood vessels, decreases painful edema, and invigorates healing mechanisms while killing harmful bacteria and neutralizing tissue-destroying oxygen free radicals.

- Enhancement of healing in selected problem wounds
