Wound care involves medical intervention to heal a wound after injury. Specialized treatment is provided for wounds that are non-healing or refuse to heal on their own. To promote healing, learning how to properly dress and care for wounds is vital.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy involves using 100 percent pure oxygen under increased atmospheric pressure. HBOT may be right for you if standard treatments have not worked.
The HBOT chamber is a clear tube with a comfortable bed. TVs are available as an added amenity to pass the time throughout your treatment. Once inside the chamber, air pressure is increased to three times higher than normal air pressure, allowing more oxygen to be dissolved in the blood plasma and absorbed by the body's tissue, promoting the healing process. HBOT can improve quality of life by helping wounds heal faster.
