Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a specialized medical treatment in which the patient breathes 100 percent oxygen inside a pressurized chamber. Commonly known for its use in treating the bends (a scuba diving complication), modern hyperbaric therapy is also used to treat stubborn, non-healing wounds.
HBOT therapy quickly delivers concentrated oxygen to the bloodstream. This assists in the healing process of wounds and is effective in fighting certain types of infections. It also helps the body grow new blood vessels, which can improve circulation and wound healing.
