Necrotizing Soft Tissue Infections
A rare but deadly type of bacterial infection, necrotizing soft tissue infections, also known as “flesh-eating bacteria,” can destroy the skin, muscles and underlying tissue. This condition can begin with a small scrape or cut that becomes infected with bacteria, then spreads to the bloodstream and rest of the body.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy can aid patients with necrotizing soft tissue infections by amplifying the effects of antibiotics, enhancing the body’s natural ability to fight off bacteria, and since some strains of bacteria are anaerobic, inhibit replication and directly kill the organism.
How you will benefit from HBOT
