What to Expect With Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Our state-of-the-art hyperbaric oxygen chamber offers powerful healing
for problem wounds.
You will receive the most advanced care from our highly-trained professionals
who specialize in wound care. Here's what you can expect during your
visit. After an initial consultation and examination at the Center, you
will be ready to begin your therapy.
When you arrive at the Center, you will receive complete instructions regarding
your treatment. Before starting, you will change into a 100% cotton garment
provided by the Center. For safety reasons, no other clothing may be worn
inside the hyperbaric oxygen therapy chamber.
Once you are comfortably situated inside the chamber, the pressure will
gradually be increased and the temperature will temporarily rise.
You may experience fullness in your ears as a result of the increased pressure.
The technician will instruct you in ways to help clear the pressure and
relieve any discomfort.
Most treatment sessions in the chamber last approximately two hours. We
want to make sure you are as comfortable as possible. While undergoing
treatment, you may watch TV or videos, simply relax or even sleep.
