Hyperbaric medicine uses oxygen under pressure to treat a variety of illnesses that respond to increased oxygen in the blood stream including diabetic wounds, radiation injury and surgies like skin grafts that aren't getting enough oxygen. Hyperbaric Medicine is used with advanced wound care to heal wounds and sores that otherwise would not heal potentially causing ampuations or take very long to heal.
