Healing Chronic Wounds
Chronic wounds caused by diabetes, pressure ulcers, trauma or other conditions affect three to five million people in the United States each year. The Advanced Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center at Centennial Hills Hospital Medical Center helps people with chronic wounds. The staff who work in the program understand the underlying conditions that cause acute and chronic wounds, including diabetes, poor circulation and infection.
Wound Care Therapies
The therapies we offer include:
- Aggressive wound care therapy
- Specialty dressings
- Compression therapy
- Growth factors
- Bio-engineered tissue products
- Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (see below)
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Explained
Among the services offered in the wound care program is hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). In this procedure, a patient relaxes inside a pressurized chamber that is filled with 100 percent oxygen. Breathing pure, pressurized oxygen delivers high concentrations of oxygen to the bloodstream and the wound, accelerating the healing process. Wounds receiving HBOT have a much higher success of healing and can potentially prevent amputation.
