Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment

Community members who suffer from chronic non-healing wounds, carbon monoxide poisoning, certain infections or other illnesses and injuries will benefit from St. John’s Riverside Hospital’s Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) program. In conjunction with the Wound Healing Center – but not limited to these patients – we have proudly opened a brand new HBOT center, where you will not be disappointed by the high level of attention and care that you have come to expect from St. John’s Riverside Hospital.


Oxygen therapy is a powerful treatment for wound healing

Intro
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a daily treatment in which a patient breathes 100% oxygen 2-3 times greater than normal atmospheric pressure while in a hyperbaric chamber. This treatment results in an increase of 10-15 times in plasma oxygen concentration. This oxygen rich plasma is able to travel past restriction up to 3 times further in the body allowing it to reach low-oxygen areas, i.e. damaged tissue. The pressurized environment within the hyperbaric chamber helps to reduce swelling and discomfort, while providing the body with at least 10 times its normal supply of oxygen to help repair damaged tissues.
