Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy at Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital
Home to two hyperbaric oxygen chambers, Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital’s Wound Care Center offer hyperbaric oxygen therapy for patients who are in need.
Hyperbaric oxygen treatment helps the body heal by allowing patients to breathe pure oxygen inside a chamber with greater-than-normal atmospheric pressure. This saturates a patient’s blood with oxygen, promoting circulation that can clear infection and improve healing.
This method helps a wound heal from the inside out. It can also reduce swelling, build new blood vessels and help produce healthy tissue.
Hyperbaric therapy can also treat:
- Bone damage from radiation therapy
- Soft tissue injury caused by radiation
- Decompression sickness
- Carbon monoxide poisoning
Hyperbaric Chambers at the Adventist Bolingbrook Wound Care Center
The two hyperbaric chambers at the Adventist Bolingbrook Wound Care Center are tubes of clear glass. A staff technician will remain with you throughout the two-hour treatment process, and you can either rest quietly, have a chance to watch movies or shows on television screens installed in the treatment room.
