Physicians recommend HBOT for many types of wounds and medical conditions. At Bethel Park Health + Wellness Pavilion, we primarily use hyperbaric medicine to treat:
Your exact treatment course depends on the type of wound you have and your overall health. Your wound care specialist plans how many weeks of HBOT you need to give your wound the best possible chance at healing completely.
In general, you will spend several hours inside our hyperbaric chamber. The air pressure inside the chamber is several times higher than air pressure outside. Also, the chamber maintains a higher concentration of oxygen compared to the outside environment.
Your safety is our top concern throughout your entire treatment course. For this reason, we provide special clothing for you to wear inside the hyperbaric chamber. This clothing reduces the risks of sparks from static electricity.
Many people find hyperbaric treatment relaxing and choose to nap or watch television during their session. While inside the chamber, our hyperbaric medicine nurses are readily available to address any concerns or provide any treatment you may need.
