Cox Hyperbaric Medicine
and Wound Care Center

Providing wound services, foot care services, and hyperbaric oxygen therapy to patients of all ages.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy

During hyperbaric oxygen therapy, the patient relaxes in a specially designed chamber and breathes 100 percent oxygen. (The air we normally breathe is 21 percent oxygen.) Pressure in the treatment chamber gradually increases, increasing the amount of oxygen delivered to body tissues by the bloodstream.

Hyperbaric, or high pressure, therapy is indicated in the treatment of 12 conditions, including problem wounds, carbon monoxide poisoning and air or gas embolism. To learn more about hyperbaric medicine, visit the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medicine Society´┐Żs Web site.
