What Is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

Last updated 4 years ago

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, or HBOT, is an important part of the wound care we offer at Largo Medical Center. During HBOT, a patient will breathe in pure oxygen at a pressure of up to three times that of normal air pressure. This enables a patient’s body to receive more oxygen than would ordinarily be possible in a short timespan, which can be critical in effective treatment of many serious injuries and conditions. HBOT has proven successful in treating a number of issues, ranging from infections to air embolisms to decompression sickness. It has also been used to treat tissue damaged by radiation therapy or by complications from diabetes.
