Over the years, you may have heard that celebrities like Madonna and Michael Jackson used something called Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) to slow down the aging process.  However, this therapy is mainly used to treat medical conditions.  Did you know that HBOT is used to help diabetics heal chronic wounds?  Could you benefit from HBOT?

What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

HBOT is a treatment that allows you to breathe in 100% oxygen (versus the 21% that is naturally in the environment.)  You are either given the oxygen through a mask or you sit inside a room that is pressurized to help the oxygen dissolve into your blood.  This extra oxygen helps to decrease swelling, prevent infection, and helps new blood vessels grow to areas that aren’t getting enough blood.

When would a diabetic get Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

A diabetic may qualify for HBOT if they have had a wound or ulcer on their feet that has been there for a long time and isn’t healing using other treatments.  Diabetics who have had a skin graft for a wound or a long-standing bone infection may also be good candidates.

It is important to note that hyperbaric oxygen therapy is supposed to be used with other forms of treatment.  Healing rates are greater than 80% for patients who follow through with their doctor’s advice.

Am I eligible for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

Every patient and circumstance is different.  Many factors go into deciding whether or not you are a good candidate for HBOT.  Generally, other treatment methods must have been tried that either didn’t work as quickly or have failed.  The best way to find out if Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is right for you is to schedule an appointment with us.  Dr. David Schlam at Hollowbrook Foot Specialists in NY, specializes in medical care for the feet and ankles.  Call us at (845) 298 – 9074 or click here to schedule your appointment today.
