What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

HBOT for short

HBOT involves exposing the body to 100 percent oxygen at a pressure that is greater than what you normally experience. Wounds need oxygen to heal properly, and exposing a wound to 100 percent oxygen can, in many cases, speed the healing process.

It is proven effective for a number of different medical and surgical conditions, either as a primary treatment or in addition to other medical treatments such as antibiotics or surgery.

The St. Mary's of Michigan Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center uses a single person (monoplace) pressurized chamber. The hyperbaric chamber is approximately eight feet long and about 34 inches wide. It is made of clear acrylic, allowing the patient to see the nurse/technician at all times.
