What is HBOT?

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a clinical treatment where the patient breathes 100% oxygen intermittently while enclosed in a hyperbaric oxygen chamber at a pressure greater than one atmosphere.

HBOT has been proven effective for many medical conditions, and as a result the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medicine Society, one of the premier research institutes, has approved it to treat the following indications:

  • Air or Gas Embolism
  • Carbon Monoxide Poisoning, Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Complicated by Cyanide Poisoning
  • Clostridal Myositis and Myonecrosis (Gas Gangrene)
  • Crush Injury, Compartment Syndrome, and other Acute Traumatic Ischemias
  • Decompression Sickness
  • Enhancement of Healing in Selected Problem Wounds
  • Severe Anemia
  • Necrotizing Soft Tissue Infections
  • Refractory Osteomyelitis
  • Delayed Radiation Injury (Soft Tissue and Bony Necrosis)
  • Compromised Skin Grafts & Flaps

In addition, Medicare coverage determinations will reimburse in the U.S. for the following conditions :

  • Patient has type I or type II diabetes and has a lower extremity wound that is due to diabetes;
  • Patient has a wound classified as Wagner grade III or higher; and
