Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy - Virtua Service

Experience the Healing Power of Oxygen 

As one of life’s primary building blocks, oxygen has an important role in the complex process of healing. 

Oxygen helps create injury-healing cells, but the oxygen available through the air we breathe isn’t always enough to create those cells. Complications from diabetes, surgical and radiation wounds and more can stress the body and make it harder to heal. 

In cases like these, a specialized wound healing therapy called hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) delivers higher concentrations of oxygen directly to tissue that's resistant to healing. 

A progressive therapy recognized for producing excellent results for patients, HBOT is used for a variety of conditions, including: 

  • Wounds that haven’t healed within 30 days
  • Diabetes-related wounds, including ulcers of the foot and leg
  • Pressure ulcers
  • Bone infection (osteomyelitis)
  • Failed skin grafts
  • Delayed radiation tissue damage, including oral and gum tissue
  • Urological conditions like interstitial cystitis

What does a patient experience during hyperbaric oxygen therapy?

  • The therapy is painless and gentle.
  • Patients lay comfortably in a large see-through tube, immersed in 100% oxygen.
  • They can listen to music or even watch a movie.
  • Many patients describe the therapy as relaxing and may rest or fall asleep.
  • Patients can see and talk to their technician at any time during the entire session.
  • Sessions are 90 minutes, 5 times a week, for several weeks as recommended (results are most effective when recommended sessions are completed).
