Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO2) therapy is a unique treatment approach. It is best known for treating injured SCUBA divers, but it is also used to treat:
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is breathing 100 percent oxygen at pressure two or three times greater than the atmospheric pressure at sea level. This dissolves more oxygen in the bloodstream and delivers it to every part of the body. Hyperbaric oxygen helps the healing process by stimulation blood vessel growth and enhancing the immune system's ability to fight infection.
Hyperbaric oxygen may be the primary treatment for some disorders, but is more often used as part of a comprehensive plan of care involving antibiotics and surgery. Providers work closely with each patient's current team of care providers to monitor their progress.
At LDS Hospital, our patients are treated in monoplace (single person) chambers. They are made of acrylic and filled with 100 percent oxygen. The number of treatments that a person will receive is determined by what is being treated and the patient's response to therapy.
Our Hyperbaric Medicine services are based in the East wing of LDS Hospital on Level 6. Many patients receive their first treatments directly from the emergency department, while others are referred to us by their physician.
