Researchers found that patient’s wounds improved significantly, with an average of 90% reduction in size.

Can HbOT help with wound healing?

HbOT for wound healing is a treatment that involves breathing almost pure oxygen, while in a pressurised chamber.

HbOT has been found to be a safe and effective way to treat wounds that are taking a long time to heal and fight infections by boosting the amount of oxygen delivered to tissues in the body.

Treatments can help with:

  • Wound healing
  • Infection prevention
  • Reducing inflammation

Please Note: Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy compliments conventional treatment, we do not recommend it as an alternative. If you are unsure, please consult your doctor.

What are the benefits of HbOT for wound healing?

Chronic conditions like diabetes, vascular issues, and infections can impede wound healing, but HbOT brings hope to those seeking effective treatment.

Inflammation is the body’s normal reaction to injury, but when it becomes chronic, it can slow the healing process and even cause further damage.

HbOT for wound healing can help the healing process by increasing the quantity of oxygen supplied into body tissues, lowering inflammation and promoting safe and effective healing.

The research on HbOT for wound healing

According to a 2012 study published in the journal ‘Advances in Skin & Wound Care, HbOT dramatically enhanced wound healing in patients with chronic non-healing wounds.
The trial comprised 28 patients, receiving 30 HBOT sessions during a six week period.

The researchers discovered that the wounds of every patient improved significantly, with an average 90% reduction in wound size.

In another study published in the ‘Journal of Wound, Ostomy, and Continence Nursing,’ HbOT was also found to be effective in treating foot ulcers in patients with diabetes.

The researchers found that in 18 people with ulcers receiving HbOT treatments, all the ulcers got better, with the wounds reducing in size on average by 73%.

As a result of this study, researchers say that HbOT for wound healing should be investigated as a possible treatment for diabetic foot ulcers.

The research on wound infection

When body tissues lack oxygen, bacteria can flourish and there can be a danger of diseases emerging.

HbOT treatments can help to avoid the development of wound infections by boosting the amount of oxygen delivered to the tissues.

In a 2022 study published in the journal ‘Undersea & Hyperbaric Medicine’, HbOT was found to be useful in preventing infection in patients with crush injuries.

The study comprised 34 individuals who underwent HbOT for wound healing and researchers found that none of them became infected.

In a study published in the journal ‘Advances in Therapy’, HbOT was found to be beneficial in lowering inflammation in patients with acute soft tissue injuries.

The study comprised 20 patients, with researchers discovering that inflammation levels were dramatically lowered after HbOT treatments.
