  • Providing diabetic wound services with hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy. It is a therapy in which patients breathe 100% oxygen at an atmospheric pressure greater than twice the normal atmospheric pressure at sea level (ATA). The patient will be treated in a high-pressure atmospheric chamber to breathe in 100% pure oxygen into the body resulting in increased oxygen in the blood. This allows oxygen to spread to all parts of the body, especially the tips of the body parts. The patient's body will make more capillaries in ischemia areas, when cells receive more oxygen, they will work to make new tissues, helping the wound to heal faster. Hyperbaric machine can be used to treat patients with many diseases such as infected injuries, injuries caused by accidents, chronic wounds from radiation, burns, scalds and sudden hearing loss. This depends on the doctor's diagnosis.
