Hyperbaric Medicine Services

St. Mary's provides outpatient, non-emergent hyperbaric oxygen therapy upon physician referral and the acceptance of a patients individualized treatment plan. Outpatient hyperbaric oxygen therapy is used primarily for patients with chronic non-healing and late radiation tissue-damaged wounds, which are non-responsive to conventional wound care. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is an adjunctive therapy to be used with continued conventional wound care.

Treatments take place in a clear, single chamber where 100% oxygen and increased pressure are used to promote wound healing and help decrease chronic infections. Using 100% oxygen with increased pressure enables damaged areas to grow new small blood vessels, restore cellular growth, and rebuild bone, muscle and skin.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is safe, effective, non-invasive, and painless. Patients rest comfortably in a clear chamber and may nap or watch television during treatment. Evidence-based treatment protocols are applied based on a patient's diagnosis.

St. Mary's Hyperbaric Medicine Services is staffed by hospitalists, registered nurses, and respiratory therapists all trained by an approved Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS) program.
