Only one hospital in the state of Nebraska offers patients suffering from radiation injury, diabetic wounds and other various disorders the opportunity to receive this advanced treatment. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBO) involves the use of oxygen at greater-than-normal atmospheric pressures to treat a variety of disorders.

During hyperbaric oxygen therapy, patients are entirely enclosed within a clear acrylic chamber that is pressurized up to three times normal atmospheric pressure. One hundred percent oxygen is delivered within this pressurized environment which increases the oxygen concentration in the blood and ultimately in the body tissues. This combination of high pressure and oxygen increases the amount of oxygen available to your body and promotes wound healing.

The staff at The Nebraska Medical Center's Hyperbaric Medicine Center are specially trained to administer these therapies to patients with a variety of disorders including:

Late Radiation Tissue Injury - bone or soft tissue complications
Acute carbon monoxide poisoning
Compromised skin grafts and skin flaps
Problem wounds -- such as diabetic foot ulcers
Cerebral arterial gas embolism - decompression and iatrogenically induced
Clostridial myonecrosis - gas gangrene

In this video, Dr. Jeff Cooper, the medical director of the hyperbaric oxygen unit at The Nebraska Medical Center, describes in detail how this therapy works and the variety of things it can be used to treat.
