Chronic Refractory Osteomyelitis
Chronic Refractory Osteomyelitis is a bone infection that can be found in both children and adults, though the latter typically suffers from more chronic symptoms. The acute version of the disease could manifest itself in about two weeks, while chronic osteomyelitis may not develop for weeks or months. Symptoms may include chronic pain, prolonged healing of wounds and prolonged discomfort.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy increases oxygen levels in the blood, thereby killing the advance of organisms that prefer minimal oxygen.
How you will benefit from HBOT
- Therapy kills organisms that thrive when oxygen levels are low
- Works in synergy with antibiotics
- Increases oxygen level to affected areas
Did You Know?
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Reduces Inflammation. HBOT helps ameliorate both acute and chronic inflammatory conditions by reducing proinflammatory cytokine release. With more oxygen present in the blood system, blood vessels can restrict their flow (vasoconstriction) to damaged tissue and reduce the fluid build up (swelling or edema) without compromising the higher oxygen levels needed for repair.
Our experienced clinical team is available to help you identify appropriate candidates for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and to answer any additional questions about HBOT or our facilities. You deserve the best – our mission is to achieve patient success through personalized, innovative, and compassionate care that enhances your healing potential. We do so at the lowest possible out-of-pocket cost for your patients, with only one copay and/or less coinsurance than at a hospital-based HBOT program.
