HBOT Can Help Heal De-Gloving Injuries

By · March 14, 2012 · Filed in HBOT

HBOT is effective for many types of wounds including de-gloving injuries to various body parts (such as the hand in the example), large surface wounds from trauma, spider bites and many non healing wounds. HBOT decreases tissue swelling and therefore salvages damaged tissues when used in the case of traumatic injuries. In the case of chronic wounds, HBOT assists the epithelium covering the wound and stimulates fibroblast production of collagen.

3 HBOT treatments in first 24 hours. Total of 20 over a period of 4 weeks. Then, healed and most function of the hand restored.
