An estimated 6.5 million Americans suffer with wounds that are not healing well, called chronic wounds. Elderly people or people with diabetes or other vascular disease are most affected by chronic wounds. Especially, wounds resulting from trauma, surgery, burns, skin grafting, and radiation therapy.

Chronic wounds are especially prone to serious bacterial infections. If unrecognized and untreated, chronic wounds can lead to amputation of a limb or possible life-threating complications.

When referring you to wound care, your doctor will order tests to identify possible infection and blood flow to the wound area. At the KRMC Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Center, a wound care specialist will review your general health history and your test results. Our team will develop an individual program for your treatment, which may include:

  • Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, which delivers oxygen to tissues affected by injury or disease and accelerates the body’s healing process
  • Wound debridement to remove unhealthy tissue and promote growth of healthy tissue in the wound area
  • Wound dressings and special wound-care products to provide the correct environment for healing to occur.

About Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

KRMC’s Wound Healing & Hyperbaric Center features a unique technology, called hyperbaric oxygen therapy, to help heal problem wounds. The therapy involves entering an oxygen chamber and breathing pure oxygen at up to three-times normal atmospheric pressure.

The word hyperbaric literally means “increased (hyper) pressure (baric).”  The pressure in the chamber forces oxygen to tissues and accelerates the body’s healing process.

The chamber itself is made of clear Plexiglas and patients comfortably watch television while inside. The treatment is noiseless and painless.

Hyperbaric therapy was first developed by the U.S. military in the early 1930’s for treating decompression sickness (known as “the bends”) in deep sea divers.  Since then, the technology has shown remarkable benefits for treating other health conditions.

In the late 1990’s, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration authorized the use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy for treating problem wounds. Statistical evidence shows that the therapy is one of the safest and most effective ways to promote healing. Specifically, the therapy:

  • Increases the delivery of oxygen to injured tissues
  • Encourages the formation of new blood vessels
  • Inhibits the growth of infectious organisms
  • Eliminates or reduces the effects of toxic substances

Wound care treatment using hyperbaric oxygen requires a substantial time commitment.  On average, patients need forty 90-minute “dives” in our hyperbaric oxygen chamber, five-days-a-week, over a period of eight weeks.
