Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)
Advanced treatment to increase your own body's ability
At our Advanced Wound Care Center at San Ramon Regional Medical Center, your therapy may include hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT).
HBOT takes advantage of your body's natural abilities to heal wounds. By breathing pure oxygen inside our pressurized chamber, your body is “super-oxygenated” and stimulated to build new microscopic blood vessels that improve oxygen concentrations and enhance wound healing.
The chamber has clear sides so you can see your surroundings. You can watch TV, movies or listen to music while your body gets the boost of oxygen it needs.
Treatments are usually 90 minutes long at a frequency recommended by your wound care team. Your medical team will help you determine if HBOT is right for you.
If you have any other questions or would like more information, call (800) 284-2878.
