Treating Crush Injuries & Other Acute Traumatic Ischemias
An acute traumatic ischemia is a condition of inadequate supply of blood to organs and body tissues as a result of a severe physical injury. Crush injuries and compartment syndrome are traumatic ischemias associated with complex wounds resulting from such traumatic injuries. Crush injuries affect a portion of the body, such as the leg, while crush syndrome indicates that the injury is accompanied by a systemic problem, such as shock or kidney failure.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy can aid in recovery from and promote healing in crush injuries.

HBOT aids in the treatment of crush injuries in the following ways:
- Reduces swelling
