Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) involves the use of 100% oxygen in a pressurized chamber. The use of HBOT can increase healing in wounds by increasing the oxygen levels to those areas.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is prescribed by your physician and the number and length of treatments can vary depending on your diagnosis.
The Hyperbaric Chamber at Magnolia Regional Medical Center is located in the Respiratory Department and is managed by staff that has received specialized training in Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.
The Hyperbaric Chamber is under the direction of Dr. Moises Menendez, as well as Dr. Ked Davis and Dr. James Chambliss.
