Infection control and wound care safety
Treatment plans are dependent on proper wound dressing, protection and prevention techniques. This makes infection control an important component of wound care. We take extra precautions to avoid infections and do everything we can to control infections that are already present.
Hyperbaric medicine refers to the use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) to promote healing in all types of wounds and conditions. It is commonly used in wound care to promote the healing process. When undergoing HBOT, patients enter a pressurized chamber where they breathe 100 percent pure oxygen.
The hyperbaric chamber creates an environment where the lungs can gather more oxygen. As a result, more oxygen enters the bloodstream and is carried throughout the body. The increased levels of oxygen help your body fight bacteria and infection, which promotes healing.
