Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy - UChicago Medicine

We offer hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) to treat chronic wounds. During hyperbaric oxygen therapy, a patient breathes pure oxygen while cradled in a special pressurized chamber. When pressurized to 1.5-3 ATA, hyperbaric oxygen therapy allows higher amounts of oxygen to be dissolved in the bloodstream and carried to body tissues that need healing. We are one of the few hospitals in the Southland to have two hyperbaric chambers. Patients receive their prescribed treatment daily, Monday through Friday, for two hours.

Most common conditions treated with HBOT:

  • Non-healing wounds
  • Amputation revision and complications
  • Chronic ulcer and lower extremity
  • Crush injuries
  • Non-healing diabetic wounds
  • Compromised skin grafts and flaps
  • Radiation injuries
  • Actinomycosis
  • Osteomyelitis
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Cyanide poisoning
  • Necrotizing fasciitis
