Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Advanced recovery as a result of a pressurized oxygen chamber is available in Pecos!
Reeves Regional Health has a hyperbaric oxygen therapy program that provides a non-invasive medical treatment delivering 100 percent oxygen in chambers at pressures greater than the normal atmospheric pressure.
Known to promote healing, hyperbaric oxygen therapy works by increasing the oxygen concentration of the body at the cellular level.
This type of therapy is ideal for patients with:
• Chronic non-healing wounds
• Compromised skin grafts and flaps
• Diabetic-related wounds
• Surgical wound infections
• Venomous bites
• And many more conditions
The treatment method includes bactericidal and bacteriostatic effects, anti-inflammatory factors, acceleration of revascularization, and reduced reperfusion injuries.
