Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Help your body mend damaged tissue faster with simple, painless hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) at the Owensboro Health Wound Healing Center. During this treatment, your lungs take in extra oxygen that your blood carries to wounds to fight infection and restore your well-being.

What to Expect

Before your first HBOT session, you’ll meet with a health care professional to discuss your treatment plan and ask questions. You’ll probably need between 20 and 40 sessions of therapy over several weeks.

Breathe Pure Oxygen

During each treatment, you recline on a soft surface in a large, clear chamber that contains 100 percent oxygen—nearly five times as much oxygen as the air you usually breathe. The air in your chamber is pressurized to help your lungs take in more oxygen than you would otherwise.

Because of the increased pressure, you might briefly feel fullness in your ears, as you would in an airplane. Just yawn or swallow to ease the sensation.

Relax During Treatments

You may watch TV, view a movie or just rest during your treatments, which last about two hours. A skilled technician will remain nearby throughout each session to tend to your needs.
