Hyperbaric therapy helps wound healing

from WECP-TV

Hyperbaric therapy can help patients who encounter wounds that have difficulty healing. Dr. Ashish Gupta from The Center for Wound Care at Gulf Coast Regional Medical Center in Florida says this therapy is used for conditions, such as cystitis and oral problems, in addition to wound healing. "Bacteria do not like higher concentrations of oxygen, and tissues love higher concentrations of oxygen. We are breathing about 21 percent oxygen. We can double and triple that to help with healing and killing infection," explained Gupta. Patients are put into the chamber for an hour and a half to two hours for 40 to 60 treatments. It's painless, and they can even watch TV while in the chamber. more
