What Is Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment?
Hyperbaric oxygen treatment is the breathing of 100 percent oxygen at 2 to 3 times normal atmospheric pressure. In order to accomplish this treatment, a patient must be enclosed in a specially constructed chamber. The Genesis Wound and Hyperbaric Institute offer single person chambers where the patient lies comfortably during their treatment. These comfortable, modern chambers are monitored closely by Certified Hyperbaric Technologists and specially trained physicians.
