    Comprehensive Wound Therapy
     

    Patients with a wound that has not begun to heal or is not completely healed due to poor circulation or other conditions benefit from the specialized treatment provided at the Mercy Wound Care Center. Some indications for wound therapy include:

    • Diabetic ulcers
    • Neuropathic ulcers
    • Pressure ulcers
    • Ischemic ulcers
    • Venous insufficiency
    • Traumatic wounds
    • Surgical wounds
    • Vasculitis
    • Burns
    • Peristomal skin irritations
    • Other chronic, non-healing wounds


    Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
    Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) helps the body’s oxygen-dependent, wound-healing mechanisms function more efficiently. While enclosed in a chamber at greater-than-normal atmospheric pressure, patients breathe pure oxygen, saturating their blood plasma and allowing it to carry from 15 to 20 times the normal amount of healing oxygen to the body’s tissues. Up to 18 percent of wound care patients may require HBOT treatments provided by the center’s physicians and clinical technicians and staff, who are specialty trained in hyperbaric medicine.
