Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy, is a treatment in which the patient is put in a pressurized high-oxygen environment. It is used to treat illnesses related to diving, carbon monoxide poisoning, the negative effects of radiation treatment, and to speed the healing of wounds, infections, and gangrene.
Specially Chosen Dressings/Wraps
Specially chosen dressings and wraps for wound care is essential to proper healing. Offered by the Mercy Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine Center, this service includes the selection of the appropriate material for open wounds, such as gauze, foam, and transparent film, and the use of the proper dressing techniques.
Platelet Growth Technologies
Platelet growth technologies rely on platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which acts as a growth factor agonist. The use of this PRP from the patient is applied directly to a wound. It helps the body repair itself by providing stem cells with the stimulation to generate new tissue.
