Chronic Non Healing Ulcers

SP Fort Centre For Hyperbaric Medicine provides specialized treatment for chronic or non-healing wounds, which are defined as sores or wounds and wherein conventional treatments have not reaped significant results. Due to inadequate circulation, poorly functioning veins, and immobility, Non-healing wounds lead to lower quality of life and may lead to amputations. Typically, a wound that does not respond to normal medical care within 30 days is considered a problem orchronic wound and needs to be treated with a specialized course of therapy - Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT). HBOT is used as an adjunctive treatment for problematic, non-healing wounds that meet specific criteria; it is expected that 10 to 20% of the wound care cases will do so. During the treatments, the patient breathes 100 percent oxygen inside a pressurized chamber, quickly increasing the concentration of oxygen in the bloodstream, where it is delivered to a patient's wound site for faster healing. Throughout HBOT treatments, the patients are monitored to inspect if the concentration of oxygen has increased in the blood near the wound. If the oxygen level is higher, the therapy is most likely beneficial to the patient. Essentially, HBOT therapy helps heal the wound
