If you have a wound, infection, or skin issue that is not healing under standard treatment, you may be a candidate for hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO), a medical treatment in which the entire body is placed under increased atmospheric pressure while you breathe 100% oxygen. This treatment, which is administered in a pressurized chamber, is proven effective for non-healing wounds, bone infections (osteomyelitis) that do not respond to standard treatment, problem surgical wounds, and skin grafts and flaps that are having trouble healing. HBO can also be helpful if you’re experiencing complications from radiation therapy.
