The Dr. James Dy Wound Healing Center offers the Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), a treatment used to speed up healing of carbon monoxide poisoning, gangrene, stubborn wounds, and infections in which tissues are starved for oxygen. It utilizes a special chamber where patients breathe in pure oxygen in air pressure levels 1.5 to 3 times higher than average. The goal is to fill the blood with enough oxygen to repair tissues and restore normal body function.
Patients with the following conditions are recommended to undergo
- Wounds and ulcer
- Skin, bone, and tissue conditions
- Post-radiation damage
- Injury and accidents
The HBOT is important as it prompts healing and growth of new blood vessels. Deactivates clear toxins, metabolic wastes, and improves healing and ability to fight infection.
