Hyperbaric Chamber Therapy for Effective Chronic Wound Care

chronic wound care

Chronic wounds are damaged tissue that is slow to heal or reappears. It may be an incision wound from surgery or a lesion caused by an illness. Those with chronic wounds suffer from pain and continuously struggle to heal, affecting their quality of life. Our medical team at Medici Medical Arts offers advanced treatments for chronic health conditions, including chronic wounds. One effective option we utilize for chronic wound care is oxygen therapy using our hyperbaric chamber.

What is Hyperbaric Chamber Oxygen Therapy?

Most people have heard of hyperbaric chambers that are used for scuba divers to treat decompression sickness. These chambers are filled with 100% pure oxygen and are pressurized up to three times that of air at sea level. The pressure and available oxygen in the hyperbaric chamber forces oxygen into the patient’s blood and tissues, which can be beneficial for many health conditions, including chronic wound care. Therapy sessions inside the chamber can last up to two hours, depending on the patient and their condition.

How Does Oxygen Therapy Improve Chronic Wound Healing?

Many chronic wounds occur due to a circulatory problem. Diabetes and other diseases that are linked to poor circulation can lead to slow wound healing or reoccurring wounds. Hypoxia in the wound tissue (lack of oxygen) is a common characteristic of chronic wounds and can be a factor in the healing process. The lack of oxygen can be due to poor circulation from a disease or direct damage to the blood vessels at the point of injury. Without sufficient oxygen, the damaged tissue cannot heal correctly and may even die.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy, or HBOT, delivers the needed oxygen to the blood. Due to the pressurized level inside the chamber, oxygen can be absorbed by the tissues. The high levels of oxygen can reach tissue that has been starved of oxygen, giving it the ability to repair. HBOT accelerates healing for wounds by:

  • Reducing swelling caused by damaged blood vessels
  • Infusing oxygen into tissues with poor circulation
  • Improving the body’s immune system for fighting off infection
  • Increasing new blood vessel formation to the wound

Giving the wound tissue the oxygen it needs to repair and fight infection is vital for wound healing. HBOT is an effective option for those with chronic wounds that are slow to heal, preventing tissue deterioration and helping to minimize pain for the patient.

If you suffer from chronic wounds that reoccur or refuse to heal completely, contact us at Medici Medical Arts. We offer a multidisciplinary approach to wound care and rehabilitation, including the use of hyperbaric chamber oxygen therapy.

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Thoroughly appreciated the medical services provided by Dr. Dosanjh. Dr. Dosanjh is very confident in his patient care and concern. I would definitely refer others and have been telling others about my experience at Medici Medical Arts both Kennesaw and Buckhead. I wish he took my insurance, as I have injuries not related to my work incident for which I was seeing Dr. Dosanjh. Thank you so very much, Dr. Dosanjh! The staff is warm, welcoming and cheerful and most helpful.

Meredith

Dr. Dosanjh is a very smart, caring doctor who is highly skilled in his field. He spends whatever time is necessary to "hear" his patients and to explain the proper and best results course of action. I have a very complicated head and neck injury, so it was essential to me to have someone who truly listened with undivided attention, and thought outside the box when necessary. His staff is exemplary. They could not be more helpful and thoughtful. Lucy in particular is a gift of sunshine.

Jill C.

Dr. Sonny is the best! He has done more for me in 2 months than my previous doctor did in 14 years! If you truly want to get out of pain, then contact Dr. Sonny immediately! I just cannot reiterate how incredible a doctor he is! For that matter, his entire staff is warm and inviting! And to top it off, as a patient you get free use of their amazing gym. Highly, highly, highly recommend Dr. Sonny!

Tiffany

After a major car accident I saw Dr. Sonny for my neck & back pain. He was very knowledgeable about treatment options & really listened to all my concerns. Trigger point injections are helping me currently & I will continue to come back to Dr. Sonny.

Christina S.

I am thrilled with the care I have received from Dr. Dosanjh. He has a fabulous staff that is caring and attentive. I had serious back pain that was hindering my quality of life. Now I am on my way to being discharged. I am very thankful for all they did for me. I will not miss the pain I was in but there is no doubt that l will miss them.
