The Wound Treatment and Hyperbaric Center at Sweeny Community Hospital specializes in providing Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy and advanced, specialized wound care to each patient.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a non-invasive medical treatment administered by delivering 100% oxygen at pressures greater than 2 to 3 times the normal atmospheric pressure to a patient in a specialized chamber. HBOT acts as a drug, eliciting varying levels of response at different dosages. HBOT promotes healing by increasing the oxygen concentration of the body at the cellular level. Excellent wound care treatment combined with HBOT at Sweeny Community Hospital can help speed the healing of the most difficult wounds.
