​Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy treats clinically specific wounds by saturating tissue with oxygen. The increase in tissue oxygenation facilitates healing by killing anaerobic bacteria, stimulating the growth of new capillaries and aiding the healing of hypoxic wounds. Hyperbaric treatment is administered by breathing 100% oxygen in a clear pressurized chamber.
