Southern California Hyperbaric Medicine
Increase Oxygen with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbaric oxygen was originally relied upon to treat deep-sea divers with decompression sickness. Medical studies have since shown that hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a highly effective way to promote and accelerate wound healing and prevent complications. The Casa Colina Hyperbaric Medicine & Wound Care Center specializes in this treatment for certain illnesses and supplementary care for a variety of conditions. By delivering 100% oxygen in state-of-the-art pressurized hyperbaric chambers, you or a loved one will immediately receive the therapeutic effects of higher oxygen levels.
Hyperbaric chamber therapy enables large amounts of oxygen to be dissolved into the blood and tissues. It can help a variety of ailments by revitalizing tissues that receive poor blood flow, and in turn, stimulate the growth of new blood vessels, new tissue and infection-fighting white blood cells.
Hyperbaric oxygen treatments are recommended if you have:
- Chronic diabetic ulcers
- Certain difficult-to-heal wounds
- Compromised skin grafts and flaps
- Radiation injury to soft tissue or bone
- Acute traumatic injuries
- Acute peripheral arterial insufficiency
- Cancer radiation thermal burns
- Chronic bone infections
- Gas gangrene
- Gas embolism (arterial, venous)
- Carbon monoxide poisoning
- Decompression sickness ("the bends")
Our team of specialists includes:
