Hyperbaric Treatment and
Wound Care Center

Hyperbaric therapy is a common medical treatment used by doctors to improve healing and circulation, helping patients fight infection. Surgeons Susan Steinemann and Chad Cryer from the John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM) say this type of oxygen therapy is used to treat all kinds of medical conditions, including bends, wound care and radiation injuries.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized room or tube. It’s a well-established treatment for decompression sickness (also known as the bends) which is a hazard of scuba diving, but there are many other conditions treated with the hyperbaric chamber including serious infections, bubbles of air in your blood vessels and wounds that won’t heal as a result of diabetes or radiation injury.

We are the faculty practice of the University of Hawaii, John A. Burns School of Medicine.
