Frequently Asked Questions

What medical conditions benefit from Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)?

  • Chronic bone infections
  • Crush wounds
  • Diabetic wounds
  • Head and neck cancer patients who need oral surgery
  • Problem wounds
  • Radiation bladder problems
  • Radiation bowel problems
  • Radiation wounds
  • Threatened skin grafts and flaps

Is “high pressure” oxygen safe?
Yes. You will be closely monitored by our health care team to ensure that your HBOT is safe and effective. HBOT has limited or no after or side effects.

Does HBOT hurt?
No. You may feel a plugging in your ears from the pressurization of the chamber, similar to what you may experience when you are in an airplane or diving to the bottom of a swimming pool.

What should I expect during treatment?
You'll relax in a transparent, atmosphere-controlled chamber that allows freedom of movement. You might listen to music, watch TV, take a nap, or converse with staff during therapy.

Who will follow my progress?
The hyperbaric medical team in charge of your care includes board-certified physician specialists and hyperbaric certified nurses, all who have extensive training in the administration of HBOT.

How long do treatments last?
Hyperbaric oxygen treatments typically last 90 to 120 minutes and are administered one to two times daily, five days a week.

How many treatments will I need?
This depends on your specific condition and your body's response to HBOT. Some wound healing cases require as many as 40 treatments, but many are addressed in fewer than 20 sessions.

Is HBOT covered by my insurance?
HBOT is reimbursable by Medicare and most other third-party payors for certain accepted conditions. In most cases, preauthorization will need to be obtained prior to the initiation of treatment.
