Olmsted Medical Center Installs New Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers | Health
Earlier this week the Olmsted Medical Center received two brand new state of the art Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers.
They're used to give patients increased amounts of oxygen for better healing.
In some cases 20 times more oxygen that blood cells can use to fix wounds.
Treatment sessions typically take 2 hours.
They're being installed in the center's Advanced Wound Healing Clinic.
Where they'll be used to cure countless ailments including diabetes.
"We hope to package it all together so that we can have a comprehensive advanced wound care treatment. A place, people, staff, equipment and so forth. That's what we're trying to create with our advanced wound care program,” Advanced Wound Care Clinic Director Paulo Guimaraes says.
The chambers will be up and running starting August 14th.
That's when the Advanced Wound Care Clinic opens to the public.
